Environmental Briefs


The Royal Society of Chemistry Environmental Chemistry Group Environmental Briefs aim to bring concise but authoritative information about aspects of the environmental sciences to members of the Environmental Chemistry Group and to all those with an interest in the chemistry of the environment.

The Environmental Briefs will be published in the Group Bulletin and online. Please send any comments and suggestions for future Environmental Briefs to the Secretary.
