About this book

This book addresses the highly relevant subject of emerging pollutants, which are especially alarming since most of the available treatment technologies are unable to degrade them. It discusses the sources of these pollutants and their fate in the environment, and the main tools available for their analysis. It also describes the representative environmental matrices (air, soil and water) and appropriate analytical methods for each matrix. Furthermore, it examines aspects of toxicology, chemometrics, sample preparation and green analytical chemistry.

As such, it provides a broad overview of the potential analytical approaches for monitoring and controlling emerging pollutants.

This book fills a gap in the literature, and is a valuable resource for all professionals concerned with emerging pollutant control in real-world situations.  

About the authors

Prof. Dr. Sílvio Vaz Jr holds a BSc degree in Chemistry, a MSc degree in Physical Chemistry and a DSc degree in Analytical Chemistry from University of São Paulo, Brazil, and a doctorate degree in Chemistry from University of Coimbra, Portugal. He was director and partner of two private analytical laboratories related to environmental analysis. Since 2010, he is a research scientist at the state-owned Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) working on the development of renewable chemicals from biomass and analytical chemistry applied to bioenergy and environment. He is a current member of IUPAC and of the American Chemical Society and has published articles and books related to green chemistry, biomass chemistry and environmental and analytical chemistry. 

Reviews

“The book is recommended for scientists and PhD students (in the chemistry, ecotoxicology and biology sectors) interested in the monitoring of emerging contaminants, their fate and their effects on human health and the environment. … The book underlines the rigorous steps required in setting new analytical methods which will be essential in expanding the determination, number and species of Eps in soil, water and air in a few years.” (Paola Verlicchi, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 411, 2019)​
