Abstract

The majority of the organisms on earth including the humans are exposed to chemicals in a high amount and type in increasing amounts day by day. Pharmaceutics and pharmaceutically active substances have properties different than other known chemicals. Pharmaceutically active compounds are designed to show their effects in a very low concentration or dose at target living systems but as it is very good understood they can be hazardous to ecosystems especially on aquatic systems as aquatic systems are last recipients for the environmental pollutants.
