Analysis, fate and toxicity of chiral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in wastewaters and the environment: a review. (2020)
Journal Article
PETRIE, B. and CAMACHO-MUÑOZ, D. [2020]. Analysis, fate and toxicity of chiral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in wastewaters and the environment: a review. Environmental chemistry letters [online], Online First. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s10311-020-01065-y

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are found in the aquatic environment globally. Many NSAIDs including naproxen, ibuprofen and ketoprofen are chiral molecules. Enantiomers of the same NSAID have identical physicochemical properties but c...
