The GDCh Division of Environmental Chemistry & Ecotoxicology was founded in November 1990, has around 850 members and deals with the interactions between chemicals and the environment (environmental chemistry). On the one hand, it is a matter of describing and understanding the entry routes, the distribution and the transformation of the substances in the compartments of soil, water and air, and on the other hand, of characterizing their effect on organisms and habitats (ecotoxicology). The subject area is extremely interdisciplinary and offers people with knowledge of chemistry, biology, geosciences, law, engineering and other related disciplines research and employment opportunities. Intensive, relevant work is carried out in the four working groups of the Division .
Interested parties from research, regulation and industry can get involved in the work of the Division and its working groups in various ways and benefit from existing expertise:
At the European level, the Division supports the activities of the Division of Chemistry and the Environment of the European Chemical Society (EuChemS).
