By Greg D. Simpson,Ph.D.
1st Edition 2006, ISBN 0-9771985-0-2, 268 pages hard cover.
About the BookPractical Chlorine Dioxide is a comprehensive book for those who want to use ClO2 safely and effectively. The subject matter includes safety, environmental, reaction chemistry, generation chemistry and equipment, analytical, and materials of compatibility. In addition, there is a "Frequently Asked Questions" chapter which answers many of the common questions about ClO2 and its use. This book is more comprehensive than other books on ClO2, in that the material is presented from more of an industrial perspective than a drinking water perspective.
