Huang Chen’s paper ‘The distribution of persistent, mobile and toxic (PMT) pharmaceuticals and personal care products monitored across Chinese water resources’ was published in JHM recently. This has been the first trial in China to screen PMT chemicals in water. Congratulations!
- First PMT assessment for over 400 pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs).
- Compilation of PPCPs in Chinese surface water, drinking water & groundwater.
- Over a third of PPCPs detected in water suspected to meet the PMT criteria.
- Efforts to reduce emissions of PMT-PPCPs in China are encouraged.
