This study reports the development of a multi-residue method for determining 48 compounds of emerging concern (CEC) including three diclofenac transformation products (TP) in Slovenian wastewater (WW) and surface water (SW). For solid-phase extraction (SPE), Oasis™ Prime cartridges were favoured over Oasis HLB™. The validated method was then applied to 43 SW and 52 WW samples collected at nine locations. Ten bisphenols in WW and 14 bisphenols in SW were traced in Europe for the first time… Expand
The occurrence of contaminants of emerging concern in Slovenian and Croatian wastewaters and receiving Sava river.
TLDR
The results suggest the need for further monitoring of CECs in the Sava River Basin, as an increasing trend in the total CEC load downstream was observed, indicating the cumulative effects of individual sources along the river. Expand

TLDR
WWTPs are clearly indicated as an important source of pharmaceuticals in the Arno river with an important environmental toxicity; therefore, the reduction of pharmaceutical load originated from point source such us WWTPs would ask in the future the adoption of refinery steps in WWTBs able to increase RE of drugs.

Pharmaceuticals, pesticides, personal care products and microplastics contamination assessment of Al-Hassa irrigation network (Saudi Arabia) and its shallow lakes.
This study assess the presence of pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) and pesticides in different environmental compartments and microplastics in water of a characteristic lagoonExpand
Passive samplers vs sentinel organisms: one-year monitoring of priority and emerging contaminants in coastal waters.
TLDR
Overall, silicone rubber passive samplers proved to be more sensitive than sentinel organisms for monitoring spatiotemporal changes in the dissolved aqueous concentrations of contaminants, whereas the latter allowed for a more realistic evaluation of the potential uptake and bioaccumulation of each compound. Expand
Contaminants of emerging concern in a freeze-thaw river during the spring flood.
TLDR
Investigation of the occurrence, distribution, ecological risk, and mass flux of 22 CECs in the Jilin Songhua River in northeast China, a famously seasonal freeze-thaw river at mid- and high-latitude regions, suggest that some appropriate measures should be taken to reduce the contribution of the C ECs from the tributaries to the seasonal frozen river in its spring flood period. Expand
Comprehensive investigation of a wide range of pharmaceuticals and personal care products in urban and hospital wastewaters in Greece.
TLDR
A multiresidue analytical protocol based on solid phase extraction (SPE) coupled to liquid chromatography combined with tandem mass spectrometer-(LC-MS/MS) for simultaneous determination of 138 substances including 37 different classes of PPCPs that can be used for monitoring in wastewater. Expand
Occurrence of emerging contaminants in highly anthropogenically influenced river Yamuna in India.
TLDR
The study quantified 16 target compounds including pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and hormones in the Yamuna river, and reported the presence of PPCPs and hormone in the finished drinking water of two DWTPs at Mathura and Agra. Expand
Pharmaceuticals of Emerging Concern in Aquatic Systems: Chemistry, Occurrence, Effects, and Removal Methods.
TLDR
Adsorption technologies are a low-cost alternative, easily used in developing countries where there is a dearth of advanced technologies, skilled personnel, and available capital, and adsorption appears to be the most broadly feasible pharmaceutical removal method. Expand
The removal of bisphenols and other contaminants of emerging concern by hydrodynamic cavitation: From lab-scale to pilot-scale.
TLDR
The results show the potential of hydrodynamic cavitation for a large-scale application as a pre-treatment technology and pave the way for future improvements in the design of cavitation reactors. Expand
Emerging pollutants in water environment: occurrence, monitoring, fate, and risk assessment.
TLDR
Books published in 2018 on EPs were reviewed with special regard to their occurrence, detection methods, fate in the environment and ecological toxicity assessment, with particular focus on practical considerations, novel processes and new solution strategies. Expand

Seasonal occurrence, removal, mass loading and environmental risk assessment of 55 pharmaceuticals and personal care products in a municipal wastewater treatment plant in Central Greece.
TLDR
The anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac and the antibiotics, trimethoprim and ciprofloxacin are identified to be of high potential environmental risk for acute toxicity, while dicL ofenac also for chronic toxicity. Expand
Sources and transport of contaminants of emerging concern: A two-year study of occurrence and spatiotemporal variation in a mixed land use watershed.
TLDR
This study suggests that several CECs often characterized as effluent-associated have additional important sources such as septic systems or land-applied biosolids, and CEC monitoring studies should consider a range of land uses, seasonality, and transport pathways in relation to concentrations and loadings. Expand
Seasonal and spatial variations of PPCP occurrence, removal and mass loading in three wastewater treatment plants located in different urbanization areas in Xiamen, China.
TLDR
The total mass loadings of all the 48 PPCPs in the effluent and waste sludge showed close proportions, which suggested the importance of proper wasteSludge disposal to prevent a large quantity of P PCPs from entering the environment. Expand
Occurrence of pharmaceutical compounds in urban wastewater: removal, mass load and environmental risk after a secondary treatment--a review.
TLDR
This analysis shows that the highest amounts discharged through secondary effluent pertain to one antihypertensive, and several beta-blockers and analgesics/anti-inflammatories, while the highest risk is posed by antibiotics and several psychiatric drugs and analgesic/ anti- inflammatories. Expand
Polar pollutants entry into the water cycle by municipal wastewater: a European perspective.
TLDR
It is proposed that this index provides a measure for the potential of a polar compound to spread along a partially closed water cycle after discharge with municipal wastewater and to occur in raw waters used for drinking water production. Expand
Occurrence and persistence of organic emerging contaminants and priority pollutants in five sewage treatment plants of Spain: two years pilot survey monitoring.
TLDR
Twenty of the mostly detected and persistent compounds in wastewater effluent, of which hydrochlorothiazide, atenolol, gemfibrozil, galaxolide and three metabolites presented the highest average contribution percentages, in relation to the total load of contaminants for the different STPs effluent studied, are identified.

A review on the application of constructed wetlands for the removal of priority substances and contaminants of emerging concern listed in recently launched EU legislation.
TLDR
The relevant information on constructed wetlands (CWs) and their application for the removal of a specific group of pollutants, 41 organic priority substances/classes of substances (PSs), and 8 certain other substances with environmental quality standards (EQS) listed in Directive 2013/39/EU as well as 17 contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) of the Watch List of Decision 2015/495/EU are reviewed.

The fate of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), endocrine disrupting contaminants (EDCs), metabolites and illicit drugs in a WWTW and environmental waters.
TLDR
The current study proposes the potential of the pharmaceuticals carbamazepine, naproxen, diclofenac and ibuprofen to be regarded as priority ECs for environmental monitoring due to their regular detection and persistence in environmental waters and their possible contribution towards adverse health effects in humans and wildlife.

Emerging organic contaminants in surface water and groundwater: a first overview of the situation in Italy.
TLDR
The present review reveals the serious contamination status of Italian surface water and groundwater especially by pesticides, industrials and to a lower extent by pharmaceuticals and the necessity to foster the research on EOC occurrence in Italian water resources, in particular in Southern Italy where a limited number of investigations currently exist.
