Analysis : Occurrence and Transformation in the Environment by Dimitra A. Lambropoulou, Leo M. L. Nollet

By Dimitra A. Lambropoulou, Leo M. L. Nollet

Over the final 15 years, the focal point of chemical toxins has shifted from traditional pollution to so-called “emerging” or “new” unregulated contaminants. those comprise prescription drugs and private care items, hormones, UV filters, perfluorinated compounds, poylybrominated flame retardants (BFRs), insecticides, plasticizers, synthetic sweeteners, illicit medications, and endocrine disruptor compounds (EDCs). regardless of the expanding variety of released reports overlaying rising contaminants, we all know nearly not anything concerning the results in their transformation items and/or metabolites.

This two-volume set offers a special number of examine on transformation items, their incidence, destiny and dangers within the surroundings. It comprises 32 chapters, organised into 7 elements, every one with a unique focus:

• normal Considerations

• Transformation techniques and remedy Strategies

• Analytical Strategies

• prevalence, destiny and results within the Environment

• worldwide Speciality and Environmental Status

• probability review, administration and Regulatory Framework

• Outlook

Transformation items of rising Contaminants within the Environment is a precious source for researchers and pros in environmental chemistry, analytical chemistry, ecotoxicology, environmental sciences, and hydrology, in addition to environmental specialists and regulatory bodies.
