Edited Volumes

  1. Halogenated (Semi)Volatile Organic Compounds (“X(S)VOCs”): Published in Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts (ESPI) in March 2020 as a virtual collection at http://rsc.li/halocarbons and as a themed issue in Volume 33, Issue 3. It was co-edited by Profs. Paul Tratnyek, Elizabeth Edwards (University of Toronto), Lucy Carpenter (University of York), and Sarah Blossom (University Arkansas Medical Science). The scope includes environmental occurrence, fate, effects, and remediation of all halogenated (semi)volatile organic compounds (esp. chlorinated solvents like TCE), in any compartment (air, water, soil, biota, etc.).
  2. QSARs and Computational Chemistry Methods in Environmental Chemical Sciences: Published in Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts (ESPI) in March 2017 as a virtual collection at http://rsc.li/halocarbons and as a themed issue in Volume 19, Issue 3. It was co-edited by Profs. Paul Tratnyek and Kathrin Fenner (EAWAG/ETH). The scope range from detailed studies of specific processes using advanced molecular methods—such as the diffusion of noble gases in water, or the mechanism of antibiotic oxidation by ozone—to more general applications of statistical and “big data” approaches—such as data mining for new transformation pathways and multi-dimensional metrics for ecological risk assessment.
  3. Aquatic Redox Chemistry: Published in the ACS Symposium Series in September 2011 as Volume 1071 (DOI: 10.1021/bk-2011-1071). It was co-edited by Profs. Paul Tratnyek, Tim Grundl, and Stefan Haderlein; and based on a Symposium in honor of Prof. Donald Macalady.
