"Provides an overview of scientific and technological issues in environmental applications of carbon materials. Emphasizes the versatility of carbon materials in both gas- and liquid-phase environmental applications, including a discussion of emerging technologies. Highlights the power and potential opportunities afforded by NMR spectroscopy for understanding the interaction of carbon materials with adsorbed molecules."
". . .upholds the standards of the series with respect to clarity, coverage, and appropriate and timely literature citation."
