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

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

This two-volume set presents a different selection of examine on transformation items, their incidence, destiny and hazards within the atmosphere. It includes 32 chapters, organised into 7 components, every one with a special focus:

• basic Considerations

• Transformation procedures and therapy Strategies

• Analytical Strategies

• incidence, destiny and results within the Environment

• international Speciality and Environmental Status

• hazard overview, administration and Regulatory Framework

• Outlook

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

Example text

When such labile conjugates undergo biliary excretion and are subsequently discharged into the small intestine, microbial sulfatases and glucuronidases produced by gut microflora can liberate the unconjugated product. From a PK perspective, this may give rise to a phenomenon called enterohepatic recirculation in which reabsorption of the parent drug through the intestinal epithelium enables reentering the blood flow in the portal vein (see Figure 4) [56]. From a mass balance point of view, which focuses on determining the fraction of the administered dose exiting the human body intact, enzymatic breakdown of drug conjugates translates into excretion of bioactive compound and consequently adds to the environmental burden.
