Biochemical Aspects of Water Pollution
- 80 Downloads
Water pollution when considered in its broadest context is a by-product of human population, and its significance is in what effect it has directly or indirectly on living populations. The pollutants are chemicals (except heat) that interact with living cells, which is the subject of biochemistry. Biochemical reactions alter the compounds chemically and therefore physically because physical properties depend upon chemical configuration. The net result is an alteration in environmental quality.
