Usage Patterns of Cosmetic and Personal Care Products among Female Population in Saudi Arabia: Important Factors for Exposure and Risk Assessment

This study provides baseline data on the usage patterns of a large number of widely consumed PCPs among female population pertaining to several sociodemographic strata and the common cosmetic-related adverse events among the participants.

Environmental Contamination by Pharmaceutical Waste : Assessing Patterns of Disposing Unwanted Medications and Investigating the Factors Influencing Personal Disposal Choices

It was found that disposal of unused pharmaceuticals through household waste and domestic water systems are the most predominant practices and it is more beneficial to educate people about the proper disposal rather than educating them about the risks associated with pharmaceuticals.

Development and validation of SPE-LC-MS method for simultaneous determination of selected pharmaceuticals in hospital wastewater

The prevalence of pharmaceuticals such as antibiotics, steroids and hormones and their metabolites in the environment has been an area of growing concern.

High speed hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatographic method for simultaneous determination of selected pharmaceuticals in wastewater using a cyano-bonded silica column

ABSTRACT In this work, a fast analytical method based on hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatographic-Ultraviolet detection (HILIC-UV) using a short narrow bore cyano-bonded silica column packed

Fused core particles as an alternative to fully porous sub-2 μm particles in pharmaceutical analysis using coupled columns at elevated temperature

The chromatographic performance of columns packed with fused-core particles was compared to that of fully porous particles (sub-2 μm) at elevated temperature and extended column lengths. The study

Contamination of surface, ground, and drinking water from pharmaceutical production.

Low levels of pharmaceuticals are detected in surface, ground, and drinking water worldwide. Usage and incorrect disposal have been considered the major environmental sources of these

Green ultra-fast high-performance liquid chromatographic method using a short narrow-bore column packed with fully porous sub-2 μm particles for the simultaneous determination of selected pharmaceuticals as surface water and wastewater pollutants.

A very fast green analytical method based on LC-UV using a short narrow bore column packed with fully porous sub-2 μm particles has been developed for simultaneous determination of nine pharmaceuticals in wastewater and surface water.

Optimization and validation of a fast ultrahigh-pressure liquid chromatographic method for simultaneous determination of selected sulphonamides in water samples using a fully porous sub-2 μm column at elevated temperature.

This fast analytical method using a sub-2 μm column at elevated temperature for the simultaneous determination of nine sulphonamides in water has the highest performance in terms of analytical speed compared with other published HPLC-UV methods.
