Computational 'eco-toxicity' assessment of pharmaceutical and cosmetics materials, an approach towards a green and sustainable environment

Project description

Smart design of green chemicals

Industrial chemicals find their way into aquatic environments during production, use, and disposal of end-products. Even so-called 'green' chemicals can harm living organisms if microscopic particles accumulate in natural environments. For the safe use of existing chemicals and the smart design of future ones, a clear understanding of the structural characteristics responsible for eco-toxicity is needed. EU-funded scientists are using well-known tools such as quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR) models supplemented with others developed within the scope of the project for this purpose. This will help industries be competitive while fostering sustainable environments for aquatic life.
