The last book covering a part of this subject has come four years ago (Vymazal, J., and Kropfelova, L., 2008. Wastewater Treatment in Constructed Wetlands; Springer, New Yark) and the one prior to that six years ago (Crites R. W., Middlebrooks, E. O., and Reed, S. C., 2006, Natural Wastewater Treatment Systems; CRC Press, Boca Raton). Both are excellent treatises but neither covers systems based on 'nutrient film technique' even as it is in this segment that most spectacular advances are currently occurring. Moreover, the state-of-the-art in all systems has advanced significantly since these books came out. The proposed book would, therefore, be much more comprehensive as well as up-to-date.

Organic Inhibitors of Corrosion of Metals provides a detailed review of the various theories advanced to explain the mechanisms of organic inhibitors. Author Yu.I. Kuznetsov explores the role of potential and charge of the metal, the nature of the organic species used as the inhibitor, and the function of the solvent. The author draws connections between these key elements and the processes of passivation, pitting, synergism, and complex formation. This unique volume brings together the mechanistic and practical aspects of corrosion control by organic inhibitors.
