A non-toxic environment is the prerequisite for the human health, especially for children and women who are particularly susceptible to risks associated with toxins. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and other emerging organic contaminants (EOCs, e.g. pharmaceuticals and personal products, food additives, industrial byproducts) are of high concerns at present. Better understanding their impact on human health and the environment and control strategies actually is essential for the sound management these contaminants. Thus, this special issue aims at providing a platform to invite researchers to share information and experiences regarding POPs and other EOCs. Potential topics include, but not limited to the new sampling and analytical methods, the emission and contamination characterization, their transformation and fate, their toxicological mechanism and effects on human health, the degradation and removal technologies, and the risk assessment and policy analysis.
