Introduction
With the increasing demand of chemicals, the chemical industry continues to grow in folds generating a lot income. However chemicals and chemical waste if not well managed pose a threat to both the environment and public health. Chemicals find their way into aquifers and natural resources leading to the impairment of water quality thus making water unfit for drinking which is extremely difficult and expensive to rectify. They can also accumulate in agricultural soils; and thus become available for plant uptake. As plants extract these toxic chemicals from the soil and enter the food supply chain, the chance of impacts on human health increases. Further chemicals can be used as chemical weapons, for this reasons chemical weapon conventions have been set up to guide against such. Thus chemical management is a critical subject. Organizations such as The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have made stride in training participants with particular focus from developing countries in chemical management. Some countries have developed policies to address the issue of chemical management. This special issues aims to looks at holistic approach in chemicals from practices in chemical industry, to management of chemicals, to determination of chemical contaminants as well as the possible techniques that have been developed for removal of chemical contaminants from the environment. Further as the Guest Editor is an OPCW associate, research progress and impact made by different OPCW associates who have been trained annually over a period 18 years will be highlighted.
