About this book

Leading experts cover critical issues regarding the occurrence, persistence, treatment, and transformations of pharmaceuticals in the environment and in water treatment systems. Topics range from field studies documenting the occurrence of pharmaceuticals in environmental compartments, to laboratory studies determining the degradation kinetics and formation of by-products during treatment. The text provides data to help scientists, regulators, and engineers understand the factors that affect the environmental fate of pharmaceuticals in soil and water, to facilitate the development of best management practices, and optimize treatment systems for removal of these compounds from the environment.


Occurrence of Pharmaceuticals in the Environment; Fate of Pharmaceuticals in Soil and Water; Treatment of Pharmaceuticals in Drinking Water and Wastewater; Ecotoxicology and Risk Assessment.
