Environmental chemistry

This lecture course is established for students of Clinical and toxicological analysis and also other programs. Chemical compounds are shown as building units of the ecosystem, as means of communication in the environment, and substances making the human life easier, as well as, means of environmental pollution. The topic connects through chemistry with some other fields of science and ecology.
