Download Pharma-Ecology: The Occurrence and Fate of Pharmaceuticals by Patrick K. Jjemba PDF

By Patrick K. Jjemba

Prescribed drugs and private care products—we cannot stay with out them. Can the surroundings live to tell the tale with them?

Pharmaceutical and private care items (PPCPs) are more and more being famous as micropollutants. during this context, pharmaceutical items surround a various diversity of substances used to regard a variety of health problems, and private care items contain daily goods reminiscent of soaps, fragrances, cleansing brokers, disinfectants, and related items. Written for execs from diverse backgrounds, Pharma-Ecology bridges the information and language hole and significantly examines the problem of PPCP micropollutants and the way to most sensible reduce their influence at the atmosphere. equipped systematically, it:

  • provides quite a number pharmaceutical compounds labeled via mode of motion and customary utilization, showing the volumes (or variety of prescriptions) which are dispersed
  • Discusses the detection of PPCPs within the atmosphere utilizing instrumentation and bioassay recommendations, together with microarrays
  • Covers the occurrences of PPCPs in aquatic structures, sediments, soil, and aerial environments
  • Considers the patience and degradation of PPCPs within the surroundings, and hyperlinks pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics with the kinetics of PPCPs within the environment
  • Explores engineering and remedy suggestions which can reduce the influence of PPCPs within the environment
  • contains a variety of tables and figures that illustrate information

This is an enlightening reference for engineers, toxicologists, ecologists, micro-biologists, and chemists fascinated by toxins and environmental research; policy-makers; execs in federal and kingdom regulatory firms; and pharmaceutical pros. it's also an exceptional textual content for undergraduate and graduate scholars in comparable fields.
