Abstract

In 1993, an international project on QSAR has been started with funding from Commission of the European Union. The first part of the project is focused on preparing an overview of existing models for the prediction of environmental parameters such as biocencentration, sorption, degradation and ecotoxicity. Emphasis will be given to defining the limitations of the models. Since all models, including QSARs, have their limitations, it is important that these limitations are known in case of QSARs are actually used and applied within risk assessment context. The second part of the project is directed towards experimental research on new developments with emphasis on the use of multivariate techniques and quantum chemical properties.
