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, this involves describing and understanding the entry routes, the distribution and the transformation of the substances in the soil, water and air compartments, and on the other hand, characterizing their effect on organisms and habitats (ecotoxicology). The subject area is extremely interdisciplinary and offers research and employment opportunities for people with knowledge from the fields of chemistry, biology, geosciences, law, engineering and other related disciplines. 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:
Current topics and research contributions are published in the notifications of the Division. At the European level, the Division supports the activities of the Division of Chemistry and the Environment of the European Chemical Society (EuChemS).
