In just 3 hours our presenter will take you on a journey through the basics of environmental chemistry, the classes, sources and origins of contaminants, natural occurrence, impacts of contaminants on the environment and effects of the environment on contaminants. Also, the application of how simple chemistry principles can affect the environmental behaviour of a chemical in a natural environment.
Note: The CPD Module 5B: Interacting with your laboratory and your data will be presented in 2020.
