Strategies for Bound and Non-Extractable Residues in Laboratory Environmental Fate Studies, Live Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 28, 2014) - This webinar will focus on definitions for bound residues and NER, explanations for their formation, and regulatory approaches and guidance. Join keynote speaker, James Schmidt, Senior Scientific Advisor at ABC Laboratories, to learn more on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 1pm EDT (10am PDT).

Once chemicals enter soil or sediments environments -- whether purposefully through application or accidentally in spills or other means -- they are subject to a variety of chemical and biological transformations such as photolysis, hydrolysis, volatilization, mineralization, and generation of metabolites and degradants, each with its own significance in assessing environmental risks.

Another important pathway is the formation of bound or non-extractable residues (NER). There has been a long-standing debate on whether bound residues represent an environmental risk in their potential accumulation and persistence, a benefit as a route of removal and detoxification, or both. What's certain is that the process of bound residue formation is complex and not completely understood.

The characterization of bound residues and NER play an important role in laboratory environmental fate studies conducted for scientific interest and to satisfy regulatory requirements. In this webinar, attendees will learn definitions for bound residues and NER, explanations for their formation, regulatory approaches and guidance, and review case studies of experimental approaches and analytical techniques employed to answer both scientific and regulatory questions.
