Green Chemistry: The Importance of Accurate Analytical Tools in Preventing Environmental Contamination

Numerous chemicals that are released into the environment after waste water treatment may have endocrine disrupting effects, potentially causing reproductive damage to Humans and other organisms. Accurately identifying these compounds allows them to be traced back to ingredients in consumer products so guidance can be given to manufacturers about the environmental damage of certain ingredients.
