Environmental Analysis

Addressing the analytical challenges of persistent and mobile organic chemicals in the aquatic environment

Would you like to learn more about the analytical challenges related to the analysis of very polar and persistent mobile compounds in drinking water? If so, register for this upcoming webinar, which is the fourth episode of the #WatersForWater Blue Thursday webinar series.


The growing awareness of the risk posed by Persistent Mobile and Toxic PM(T) substances to our water resources is reflected in the European Commission's recent proposal to consider the mobility of chemicals as an important criterion for their risk assessment.

Reversed-phase liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (RPLC-HRMS) does not allow sensitive screening for highly polar chemicals due to poor chromatographic retention. This is of concern for polar and persistent compounds (PM-substances) that are also toxic (PMT substances).

Recently, SFC was applied to narrow the knowledge gap concerning the occurrence of PM(T) substances in the water cycle and for non-target screening of treated wastewater for polar ozonation products of organic chemicals.
