The study of chemical processes related to and within living organisms is known as biochemistry. Environmental biochemistry aims to examine the biochemical processes and its effects of various organic and inorganic compounds present in the environment. The application of principles of biochemistry for the preservation of the environment is the underlying goal of this field. It is concerned with the study of microbial metabolism of pollutants with a focus on understanding metabolites and critical metabolic reactions. It is also concerned with analyzing enzymes involved in metabolism of pollutants based on structural, genetic and kinetic criteria. Protection from radiation, managing air resources and water quality and preserving industrial hygiene are some of the areas of study under this discipline. The book aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects of this field. It presents the complex subject of environmental biochemistry in the most comprehensible and easy to understand language. This book, with its detailed analyzes and data, will prove immensely beneficial to professionals and students involved in this area at various levels.
