This book is comprised of the papers presented at a Symposium on Chemistry and the Enviroment held during the Chemistry International Conference in Brisbane, Australia from 1 to 2 September 1989. The Symposium sought to bring together eminent scientists to identify and discuss major environmental issues of consequence to the AsiaPacific region having a direct association with chemistry.




This Regional Symposium began as an initiative of Dr G. Thyagarajan, Secretary Commonwealth Science Council, at the 5th meeting of the Asian Coordinating Group for Chemistry (ACGC V) held at Bombay, 8-10 February 1988. Dr Thyagarajan together with Drs Mohinder Singh and J. Webb suggested an Asian initiative in a global perspective, by organising a regional workshop/symposium, dealing with chemical constituents in the environment. This could help in the formulation of effective strategies for containing environmental problems.
