Welcome

Participation in this interest group is open to all interested parties. If you are not already a member, make sure you are signed in to your SETAC account then click "Join Group” near the top of this page.

Mission

The Chemistry Interest Group (CIG) strives to improve and sustain the inherent interdisciplinary nature of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) organization in members and expertise. We increase awareness of and relevance for environmental chemistry through scientific, education and communication opportunities for chemists in the environmental field. As a global interest group, the CIG will offer opportunities to its members to interact and address global chemistry topics. The CIG strives to improve opportunities to expand member's global network.

Topics of interest for the CIG

The Chemistry Interest Group (CIG) encourages activities on all topics that are related to chemistry and the environment. Example areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • scientific and technological developments in analytical techniques for measuring concentrations of contaminants, including sampling and extraction technologies
  • development of scientific insights into processes such as sorption, degradation and transport of contaminants in the environment
  • development of scientific insights into chemical exposure in toxicological studies ranging from cellular assays to whole organism and ecosystems
  • development of methods to predict fate, exposure and effects of contaminants, for example via QSAR
