Project objectives:
To develop a predictive instrument for the assessment of environmental risks of chemical substances based on their structure-activity relationships 
Project Summary:
The project consisted of five tasks:   
1 A critical review of existing models for environmental fate and effect parameters   
2 Development of schemes and multivariate models for the classification of chemical compounds   
3 Development of new QSAR models for predicting chemical reactivity, biotic or abiotic degradation and biotransformation   
4 Application of the models to the estimation of adsorption of sediment to soil, chemical degradation, biodegredation, biotransformation, bioconcentration 
and toxic effect concentrations (aquatic and terrestrial species) 5 Validation of the models
Achieved Objectives:
