Details of the Project: The presence of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) which are classified under emerging pollutants, in surface water is a growing concern and their identification in water bodies is, thus, an area of tremendous importance. The proposed work is to develop a new analytical strategy for the simultaneous qualitative and quantitative screening of PPCPs in water and sediment of different parts of Vembanad Lake using mass spectrometry (LC-Q-TOF-MS and GC- MS). Both target analysis and non-target analysis will be carried out to identify maximum number of PPCPs. The identity of the PPCPs will be confirmed by using the fragmentation pattern (in the high resolution mass) and using standards.
