Determination of Emerging Contaminants in Water by LC-MS/MS


Emerging contaminants in water continue to be an environmental concern. They include categories of chemicals such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) and endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) both of which have been demonstrated to have detrimental impacts on human health. This presentation features an overview of the challenges associated with these contaminants, the regulatory framework around their presence in water and methods specifically developed to detect and quantify PPCPs and EDCs.
