Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Safe drinking water, together with water of environmental quality will be two major challenges in the coming decades. The intention of this Special Issue is to connect the study of the quality of water resources regarding the persistence and transport of POPs and the safety of water in the industry, for the benefit of the general public. The time is ripe to understand POPs’ processes in water, based on quantitative structure–activity relationships’ research, in order to face tough health and environmental impact issues that cross national boundaries. With this in mind, research papers will be organized within the following three sections:

1. Analytical methods for recovery and monitoring of POPs in water

2. Toxicological impact of the different chemical classes of POPs

3. Removal of POPs for water purification
