Chemistry of Hazardous Materials is a guide to hazardous materials, for both the chemistry novice and the emergency responder. It covers principles of basic chemistry and the chemical properties that make materials hazardous. The text assumes no prior knowledge of chemistry. Basic chemistry information within chapters will help you grasp the technical basis for occupational, transportation and environmental regulations.

The 7th Edition has new exercises, an introduction to the latest technologies, and a new simplified, streamlined layout. It also discusses current events to offer context for ways of interpreting, handling and storing hazardous chemical substances.
