Contents Notes
Usage of pharmaceutical and personal care products for different therapeutic end points in relation to environment -- Detection and occurrence of PPCPs in the environment -- Ecopharmacokinetics and ecopharmacodynamics -- Ecotoxicity of PPCPs -- Technologies for removing PPCPs -- Future needs. "Pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) are increasingly being recognized as micropollutants. In this context, pharmaceutical products encompass a diverse range of drugs used to treat various illnesses, and personal care products include everyday items such as soaps, fragrances, cleaning agents, disinfectants, and similar products. Written for professionals from different backgrounds, Pharma-Ecology bridges the knowledge and language gap and critically examines the issue of PPCP micropollutants and how to best minimize their impact on the environment." "This is an enlightening reference for engineers, toxicologists, ecologists, micro-biologists, and chemists involved in pollution and environmental analysis; policy-makers; professionals in federal and state regulatory agencies; and pharmaceutical professionals. It is also an excellent text for undergraduate and graduate students in related fields."--Jacket.
