QSAR Studies on Fate and Behaviour of Steroid Endocrines in Sewage Treatment

 
Price: £14  

Literature data and quantitative structure activity relationships (QSARs) were used in TOXCHEM modelling to predict the behaviour of steroid endocrine disrupters in typical U.K. sewage treatment works. Models for two typical UK sewage treatment plant configurations predicted that volatilisation during sewage treatment will be insignificant for all the oestrogens modelled resulting in a significant proportion of residues in influent sewage appearing in effluents depending on the biodegradation efficiency. It was not possible to include sludge digestion within the TOXCHEM model.
