Both Prof. Montagner and Prof. Klein have complementary expertise in the analysis and determination of emerging contaminants in the environment. This collaborative research project will focus on a list of emerging compounds of mutual interest. These compounds will be isolated, identified and quantified by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry by identical methods. The project will include samples from various points in the wastewater treatment process. This will allow for a comparison of the efficiency of removal of these emerging contaminants from the discharged water in both Sao Paulo and Lubbock, Texas. The project will involve both professors visiting each other's laboratories. It is proposed that both professors will meet at the International Society for Environmental Toxicology (SETAC) meeting and at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry meeting to share results and give joint presentation of results. Publication of the results would then be made in high impact factor peer-reviewed scientific journals. This would be the basis of a continued collaboration to obtain external funding to extend this research. Finally, both groups would have an opportunity for students. The Texas Tech University Department of Environmental Toxicology has a graduate program with several funded fellowships for doctoral students. Students from Texas Tech would have the opportunity to study in Brazil as well. This proposal is being submitted to develop a long term, mutually beneficial relationship. (AU)
