POPMAP is a research project that addresses the challenging task of modeling and mapping persistent organic pollutants.

The assessment of the impact of chemicals on human health and ecosystems requires the determination of their persistence in the environment. Current QSAR models for biodegradation in water lack the necessary reliability that is required in registration and evaluation processes such as REACH. POPMAP will explore a novel approach for mapping and classifying the chemical space and to model biodegradation in water.
