Personal Care Compounds in the Environment
Pathways, Fate, and Methods for Determination
by Kai Bester

Personal Care Compounds in the Environment systematically covers the most important classes of toxic chemicals from personal care compounds, from cosmetics to plastics additives to pharmaceuticals. For each substance, data on toxicity and bioaccumulation in various ecosystems are given.

Following an introduction to sewage treatment plant functions, the book goes on to look at environmental studies and the appropriate analytical chemistry methods. This first comprehensive treatment of personal care environmental toxins is rounded off by a discussion of strategies in wastewater treatment to control and remove these substances.
