Accolades for the CRC Press 1,4-dioxane book (Mohr/DiGuiseppi/Stickney, 2010):
"Tom Mohr's book on 1,4-Dioxane and Other Solvent Stabilizers is the most thorough and practical treatise on the subject - an amazingly complete book. It's an especially must-read for anyone dealing with the chlorinated solvent 1,1,1-TCA because even today many professionals in the field do not test for 1,4-Dioxane when it is highly likely to be present if 1,1,1-TCA is a contaminant of concern."
Dr. Robert W. Cleary, Instructor, The Princeton Groundwater Courses, Tampa, Florida
"Tom Mohr has done the environmental profession a great service by publishing in 2010 the most comprehensive summary of a significant contaminant in the groundwater environment, 1,4-dioxane. Chlorinated solvents represent the most significant legacy contaminants at groundwater sites in the U.S. and probably worldwide and the potential impact of solvent stabilizers has only relatively recently been appreciated given the mobility of 1,4-dioxane in groundwater and the challenges removing the chemical from water. Mohr’s extremely well documented book on the history, fate, transport, treatment, remediation and regulatory status of this contaminant is of great value to all involved in the on-going challenges to restore groundwater to its highest beneficial use."

"You won’t find the 1,4-dioxane book on my reference shelves – I keep it on my desk."
Dr. Stanley Feenstra, Applied Groundwater Research Ltd., Missisauga, Ontario, Canada, Co-author of Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids
"I received your book last week and have read it cover to cover twice since then – it’s a great product and one that significantly advances the knowledge on chlorinated solvents/stabilizers. It has incredible information and is well-written and well-referenced. It is rare that a book like this comes along. The chapters on stabilizers and the extraction of information from the U.S. patent literature throughout the chapters provide valuable insights."
Dr. Robert D. Morrison, DPRA, Hawi, Hawai'i. Author of Environmental Forensics – Principles and Applications, and Environmental Forensics – the Contaminant Specific Guide
"This authoritative book embodies a great deal of information on 1,4 dioxane in a useful manner. The authors in their personal style of writing call it "MTBE on steroids"; they take a potentially encyclopedic and boring topic and make it a fun to read yet admirably educating book. This very soluble and mobile chemical is a big concern in so many places around the world. I believe this book is of great importance to anyone involved in the elimination of exposure to 1,4 dioxane. The book is arranged methodologically and encompasses information from the history of 1,4 dioxane uses to the most recent remedial techniques. This text is mainly for professionals and managers working with 1,4 dioxane remediation but will also serve well the general public, especially those who are in an actual exposure scenario to 1,4 dioxane."
