Residues from pharmaceuticals can be released into the environment through a number of routes during their manufacture, use and disposal. This book explores where these residues can be found in the environment, how they break down, and how this all impacts on wildlife and human health. It is an important reference for researchers working in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as for environmentalists and policy makers wanting to better understand the impacts of pharmaceuticals on the environment.
The series has been edited by Professors Hester and Harrison since it began in 1994.
Roy Harrison OBE is Queen Elizabeth II Birmingham Centenary Professor of Environmental Health at the University of Birmingham. In 2004 he was appointed OBE for services to environmental science. Professor Harrisons research interests lie in the field of environment and human health. His main specialism is in air pollution, from emissions through atmospheric chemical and physical transformations to exposure and effects on human health. Much of this work is designed to inform the development of policy.
Ron Hester is an emeritus professor of chemistry at the University of York. In addition to his research work on a wide range of applications of vibrational spectroscopy, he has been actively involved in environmental chemistry and was a founder member of the Royal Society of Chemistrys Environment Group. His current activities are mainly as an editor and as an external examiner and assessor on courses, individual promotions, and departmental/subject area evaluations both in the UK and abroad.An important reference for researchers in the pharmaceutical industry, environmentalists and policy makers wanting to better understand the impacts of pharmaceuticals on the environment.
