Photochemical Fate of Micropollutants in Aqueous Systems Through Field Studies and Laboratory Simulation

This chapter will give insight into the techniques that can be used to assess the transformation (including the phototransformation) of pollutants in environmental waters. It will also include the laboratory experiments that are more useful to simulate the abiotic transformation of pollutants occurring in the euphotic zone and leading to potentially harmful transformation products. Particular attention will be paid to the quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) modelling process, to the photocatalytic process and to the approach utilized in the identification of the unknown transformation products.
