The QSAR Research Unit in Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology is a research unit of the Department of Theoretical and Applied Sciences at the University of Insubria in Varese, Italy. Our research activities are focused on the development of QSAR models for the prediction of the environmental behaviour and biological activities of chemicals of concern, such as classical organic environmental pollutants and emerging contaminants: personal care products, pharmaceuticals and nanoparticles. Our aim is to propose the use of validated QSAR predictions for the screening and prioritization of hazardous compounds and the “benign by design” approach of Green Chemistry.
