Antibacterial substances are a sub-group of pharmaceutical compounds. Antibiotics are among the emerging micro-contaminants in water due to their potential adverse effects on the ecosystem and possibly on human health. These compounds are likely to be released into the aquatic environment via wastewater effluent and agricultural runoff as a result of (a) incomplete metabolism that may reach up to 90%, (b) improper disposal or (c) ineffective treatment removal.
