Illicit drugs are an emerging class of environmental contaminants and mass spectrometry is the technique of choice for their analysis. This landmark reference discusses the analytical techniques used to detect illicit drugs in wastewater and surface water, details how to estimate the levels of contaminants in the environment, and explores the behavior, fate, and toxic effects of this new class of contaminants, now a ubiquitous presence in wastewater and surface water. The book details how an estimate of illicit drug consumption in a given population can be developed from an analysis of the residues of illicit drugs in wastewater. An important resource for analytical chemists, environmental researchers, forensic scientists, biologists, and toxicologists.

SARA CASTIGLIONI obtained her PhD from the Mario NegriInstitute for Pharmacological Research in Milan, Italy, for herwork on a project entitled "Occurrence, behaviour and effects ofpharmaceuticals for human and veterinary use in aquaticecosystems." She is author of twenty publications that deal withdrugs in the environment.
ETTORE ZUCCATO obtained his postdoctoral degree in humannutrition in 1999 from Milan Medical School and, in 2005, becameHead of the Laboratory of Food Toxicology. His current researchareas include food safety, the study of dietary chemicalcontaminants, and other emerging issues in food toxicology.
Dr. ROBERTO FANELLI serves as Head of theEnvironmental Health Sciences Department at the Mario NegriInstitute for Pharmacological Research, where he employs analyticalmethods based on mass spectrometry to identify and measurebiomarkers in toxicology and environmental pollutants, includingtherapeutic and illicit drugs. - Newsletter
