Choice Review

Montgomery has included information in this book about more than 400 chemicals found in groundwater, the unsaturated zone, and the workplace. Environmental consultants, government agencies, industrial hygienists, and people in real estate and insurance will benefit from the material. Information includes synonyms, chemical designations, chemical and physical properties, fire hazard data, uses, transformation products, symptoms, and exposure limits. This field guide complements Montgomery's 1989 Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference (CH, Jul'90), which covers only 138 chemicals, but with more information about each, and with references for each listing. The two books have basically the same audience, but as the titles say, one is for the office, and one is for the road. The entries two to three per page are clearly presented and the material is concisely covered. Useful with or without Montgomery's desk reference volume.-P.
