Project Description

This project proposes to use novel concepts in computational chemistry to predict the likely transformation products (TP) of relevant EDCs/PPCPs with a range of disinfection and oxidation options (such as chlorine, chloramines and chlorine dioxide) commonly used in the production of drinking water, and to apply comprehensive in vitro toxicity testing to determine their likely toxicity profile.
