Hydrolytic stability of selected pharmaceuticals and their transformation products.

The fact that pharmaceuticals are present in the environment has been proven in numerous publications. Nevertheless, their transformation products (mainly metabolites) are detected significantly less often, mainly because they are not included in the detecting methods, even though many of them are excreted from organisms at high rates and may be biologically active or have other properties that make them a potential threat to the environment. One of the most common processes that occur in the aqueous enviro...
