Environmental toxicology is concerned with the toxicological effects of environmental chemicals (both natural and anthropogenic) on living organisms. This course is an introduction to the field of environmental toxicology through the lens of a chemist.
In this course you will learn about;
The classification and properties of toxic substances.
The biological properties of important classes of chemical compounds.
The Fate of xenobiotics in the human body, including detoxification and bioactivation.
Chemical transformations of pollutants in the environment; air, water and soil pollution.
The methods and processes of analysis of environmental pollutants at trace levels.
You will have opportunity to apply this knowledge by examining and critically assessing case studies and undertaking toxicological testing using analytical instrumentation in the laboratory.
