Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology

Who we are – What we do

The “Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology” division of the GDCh deals with the residence of chemicals in the environment (Environmental Chemistry) – their entry pathways, their distribution and conversion in the compartments soil, water, air—as well as their effect on organisms and habitats (Ecotoxicology). The topics are expressly interdisciplinary and represent a wide research and career field for chemists, biologists, geoscientists, lawyers, engineers and scientists of other related disciplines.

Agenda
The Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology division of the GDCh is involved with the residence of chemicals in the environment (Environmental Chemistry) – their entry routes, their distribution and conversion in the compartments soil, water, air—and their effect on organisms and habitats (Ecotoxicology). This, by all means, interdisciplinary field offers a wide range of research and career opportunities for chemists, biologists, geoscientists, lawyers, engineers and scientists of other related fields.

For interested scientists and practitioners, the division, with its work groups, offers a forum for advancing this expert area. Currently, there are altogether about 800 members among the following work groups:
• Atmospheric Chemistry
• Soil Chemistry and Soil Ecology
• Chemical Evaluation
• Environmental Monitoring.

On the European level, the division supports the activities of the Division of Chemistry and the Environment (http://www.euchems.eu) of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS)

Paul Crutzen (Division) Award

Every year the division confers a prize for an exceptional scientific work in the field of environmental chemistry and ecotoxicology. The author or a third party may submit a scientific publication (from the past two years, peer-review journal). The submission deadline for 2017 has passed; the call for submissions for 2018 will take place in the autumn.
