Assessment and Removal of Emerging Water Contaminants


Honglan Shi, Xiaoliang Cheng, Qihua Wu, Ruipu Mu and Yinfa Ma

This review summarizes recent literature related to analytical method development, assessment, and removal of emerging contaminants in natural water resources and drinking water. This review mainly focuses on the following four groups of chemical contaminants: pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs); major disinfection byproducts, cyanotoxins, and pesticides and herbicides. Because of the large volume publications on various emerging environmental contaminants, articles relating to specific water treatment, health risk assessments and ecological impact are not included in this review. In addition, literature pertinent to emerging contaminants in air and other environments are also not covered in this review.
