Abstract : This report provides information on environmentally important physicochemical properties of inorganic and organometallic chemicals. Part I provides generic descriptions of sixteen properties or processes including, where available, estimation methods for the properties along with example calculations. Part I also discusses uptake of inorganic pollutants by biota and mathematical (computerized) models for predicting speciation in water and environmental transport. Part II of the report presents environmentally important property data for several groups of elements or compounds. The data include, for example, precalculated speciation diagrams (vs pH and/or pe), complexation and solubility product constants, soil sorption constants, and several other items. Appendices provide information on background concentrations (in air, water and soil) of metals and other inorganics, federal standards and criteria for inorganic pollutants, and the properties of soils that affect the mobility of inorganic pollutants. Volume 2 includes sections thru 10: Matrix Elements and Ligands; Trace metals; Pollutant/Trace Ligands; Radionuclides; Chemical Classes and Appendices A the D-Notation and Symbols; Chemical Composition of the Environment; Classification and Properties of Soils and Pollutant Criteria and Standards.
