Illicit Drugs in the Environment : Occurrence, Analysis, and Fate using Mass Spectrometry, Hardback Book

Illicit Drugs in the Environment : Occurrence, Analysis, and Fate using Mass Spectrometry Hardback

Edited by Sara Castiglioni, Ettore Zuccato, Roberto Fanelli

Part of the Wiley Series on Mass Spectrometry series

Description

Illicit drugs are an emerging class of environmental contaminants and mass spectrometry is the technique of choice for their analysis.

This landmark reference discusses the analytical techniques used to detect illicit drugs in wastewater and surface water, details how to estimate the levels of contaminants in the environment, and explores the behavior, fate, and toxic effects of this new class of contaminants, now a ubiquitous presence in wastewater and surface water.

The book details how an estimate of illicit drug consumption in a given population can be developed from an analysis of the residues of illicit drugs in wastewater.

An important resource for analytical chemists, environmental researchers, forensic scientists, biologists, and toxicologists.
