Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology

Who we are – What we do

German Version

The GDCh Division of Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology deals with the disposition of chemicals in the environment (environmental chemistry) – their entry pathways, distribution, and conversions in the compartments soil, water, and air – as well as their effects on organisms and habitats (ecotoxicology). The topics are highly interdisciplinary and offer a wide range of research and career opportunities for e.g. chemists, biologists, geoscientists, lawyers, and engineers.

The Division consists of a network of approximately 800 members - scientists and practitioners alike - many of which are organized in the following working groups:

  • Atmospheric Chemistry
  • Soil Chemistry and Soil Ecology
  • Chemical Evaluation
  • Environmental Monitoring.

On an international level, the Division supports the activities of the Division of Chemistry and the Environment of the European Chemical Society (EuChemS).
