Course Description
In this course you will learn about the various Liquid chromatography- tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS-MS) methods used for the determination of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) ,pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) and carbon-based nanomaterials in environmental samples. Compounds listed will be: steroid sex hormones, Pharmaceuticals such as antibiotics, ▀-blockers, anti-inflammatory drugs, lipid regulators, cyutostaics ,psychiatric drugs and illicit drugs, UV filter used as Personal Care Products as well as Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) such as perfluoro- alkylcarboxylic acids, - sulfonates and -sulfonamides are listed too. Fullerenes were selected as target nanomaterials. LC-MS-MS has gained in popularity, due to the sensitivity, ruggedness and ease of use given by API interfaces, such as electrospray (ESI) and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI),atmospheric pressure photoinization interface (APPI) respectively combined with a new generation of MS equipment (QqQ, linear on-trap Q TRAP and time of flight Q TOF and Orbitrap Velos and Q Exactive). LC-MS-MS have become often routine methods for the 200 Emerging chemicals listed in this short course. Comparison of hybrid instruments like LC-Q-TOF-MS , Q-Orbitrap-Exactive and Q Trap LC-tandem MS for multi-residue analysis of emerging contaminants will also be reported

Target Audience
The course material should be of interest to environmental chemists, either doing a PhD or not, involved in method development, analytical chemists, laboratory personnel,and governmental and industry regulators. Participants should have some general knowledge of mass MS. It can be considered a course between intermediate and advanced level.

Course Outline
1. Introduction to EDCs and PFCs: general environmental problems, regulations in US and Europe, toxic effects, environmental levels.
2. Introduction to PPCPs and nanomaterials: use, general environmental problems, toxic effects, environmental levels
3. Sample preparation for solid (sludges, sediments, soils) and liquid samples (natural waters, wastewaters, drinking water) using off-line and on-line SPE techniques (Prospket, Equan, Symbiosis, Turboflow) and direct MS/MS introduction like DART and DESI.
4 LC-MS-MS , Q Trap LC- MS and LC(UPLC)-Q-TOF-MS and Orbitrap (Q Exactive and Velos) of polar EDCs ( synthetic and natural steroids, new brominated flame retardants HBCD) , PPCPs, PFCs and fullerenes (nanomaterials) .
5. Summary and comparison of the various MS techniques used for EDCs , PPCPs, PFCs and nanomaterials in terms of sample manipulation, sensitivity and cost of analysis. Case studies: Monitoring in natural waters , groundwaters, wastewaters and sediments.

The course outlined above has been offered as half day course at the Pittsburgh conference in 2005 and 2006, as one day course in 2007,one and half day course in 2008 and one day course in 2009-2012. From 2013-2015 the course was accepted but it was cancelled because of less than 10 students. In 2016 it took place again as half day course. At present D Barcelˇ is also thecoordinator of two large European Union projects, GLOBAQUA and Sea-on –a-Chip . GLOBAQUA tackles the issue of analysis and fate of emerging contaminants and nanomaterials in European freshwaters resources. Sea-on-aChip project will develop a sensor to measure emerging sea contaminants in fish farms and coastal areas by a lab-on-a chip biosensor that will be validated by advanced mass spectrometric techniques.
