The Challenge of Micropollutants in Aquatic Systems
There are three scientific challenges in addressing water-quality problems caused by micropollutants, and usage and disposal strategies should aim to minimize introduction of critical pollutants into the aquatic environment.
Environmental toxicology and risk assessment of pharmaceuticals from hospital wastewater.
Modes of action in ecotoxicology: their role in body burdens, species sensitivity, QSARs, and mixture effects.
This review seeks to show the crucial role of target sites, interactions with the target site(s), and mechanisms for an adequate and efficient ecotoxicological risk assessment and recommends the use of internal effect concentrations and target site concentrations as a mixture toxicity parameter.
Removal of micropollutants and reduction of biological activity in a full scale reclamation plant using ozonation and activated carbon filtration.
Elimination of β-blockers in sewage treatment plants
Effect-directed analysis supporting monitoring of aquatic environments--An in-depth overview.
Ozonation and biological activated carbon filtration of wastewater treatment plant effluents.
Biofiltration of wastewater treatment plant effluent: effective removal of pharmaceuticals and personal care products and reduction of toxicity.
Partitioning of Substituted Phenols in Liposome−Water, Biomembrane−Water, and Octanol−Water Systems
A comparison with membrane vesicles from Rhodobacter sphaeroides shows that liposomes composed of zwitterionic phosphatidylcholine are appropriate model systems for mimicking the biomembrane−water partitioning behavior of all phenol species, i.e., neutral phenol, charged phenoxide, and ion pair.

All three in vitro systems, with the yeast‐based system being the easiest and most robust, are applicable for the screening of estrogenic activity in effluent samples.
