Fate and behaviour of environmental contaminants

ENV-507

Enseignant(s) :

Kohn Tamar

Langue:

English

Summary

The student will learn the important processes that control the transport and transformation of organic chemicals and pathogens in the environment, as well as the formulation and solution of quantitative models to describe these processes.

Content

- Phase transfer processes, e.g., sorption and air-liquid partitioning
- Mass transfers through boundary layers, kinetics of air-water exchange
- Structure-Activity relationships
- Transformation reactions of chemicals in the environment: substitution, elimination, hydrolysis reactions, photolysis

- Introduction to biologcial contaminants (pathogens) and their fate in the environment

Keywords
