Most of the pollutants are present in the environment as a mixture of their chiral isomers. Studies have revealed that these isomers have an enantioselective distribution, metabolism, and toxicity of these pollutants, in the light of the toxicity of their individual chiral isomers. We describe here, the different chiral isomers of common pollutants, their metabolisfii and toxicity, and methods for their separation and quantification.
