Bio-Physical Chemistry of Fractal Structures and
Processes in Environmental Systems
The objective of the project “Bio-Physical Chemistry of Fractal Structures and Processes in Environmental Systems” is to produce a book that will provide a novel and valuable approach—based on fractal geometry concepts—to the chemistry, biochemistry, physical-chemistry, and analytical chemistry of structures, properties, and processes in environmental systems. This project should provide a fundamental knowledge base for facing and solving practical environmental problems. The project is expected to be instrumental in enhancing education and increasing availability and dissemination of novel information and awareness of environmental issues.
The book will contain nine chapters, each authored by a different task group member possibly in collaboration with selected coauthors. The book is intended to provide a novel approach in these sciences, but should be regarded as integrative and additional and not substitutive to the classical approaches. The intended audience for the book will be mainly graduate students, scientists, and scholars. It should also be of interest to professionals involved in fundamental and applied studies in environmental sciences. The project will also promote integration of IUPAC activities in various fields of chemistry and collaboration with other environmental sciences.
