A professorial inaugural lecture by Graham Mills, Professor of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, University of Portsmouth
A wide range of chemicals, some of them harmful, can enter different water bodies (e.g. rivers, lakes, coastal and marine) from a variety of sources. The monitoring of these pollutants is now of global concern and legislation limiting the input of these substances exists in many countries, for example the European Union’s Water Framework Directive and Marine Strategy Framework Directive. In this lecture Professor Graham Mills will describe how a number of novel water monitoring devices have been developed at Portsmouth. He will discuss various applications of these samplers for measuring both legacy and emerging environmental pollutants in the UK and worldwide. It will include the monitoring of pesticides, drugs and personal care products, explosives and radioactive elements.
