Fate and remediation of emerging organic contaminants in aquatic and soil environments
The ubiquitous occurrence and growing abundance of many organic micropollutants in aquatic and soil environments poses significant risks to human health and ecosystems. While past research has improved our understanding of the processes controlling the fate and treatment of some classes of synthetic organic chemicals, the fate of many emerging and unregulated micropollutants of concern remain largely unknown. In this thesis research, advancement is made on the mechanistic understanding of the abiotic and biological processes that control the fate and treatment of emerging micropollutants. It ...
