SETAC is home to environmental chemists and covers the many facets of environmental chemistry, including analytical chemistry, forensic chemistry and persistence studies. Further, environmental chemistry is integral to the many approaches practiced by SETAC professionals to study the fate and effects of chemicals chemical management approaches. Some SETAC activities and publications on the topic are noted here:
Nontargeted analysis has recently gained popularity as a very useful technique to detect and quantify organic chemicals due to the ability of the technique to handle the thousands of organic chemicals that are used globally and their derivatives.
