1 Amity University Uttar Pradesh Noida Amity Institute of Environmental Toxicology, Safety and Management (AIETSM)

2 Aims and Objectives Environmental Toxicology – cause and effect- analysis of environmental contaminants (e.g. PAH’s, PCB’s, pesticides, Heavy metals, dioxins/dibenzofurans etc.) and their impact on eco-system (soil, water, air, flora and fauna) Safety and Management- Bio-remediation, site reclamation, environmental monitoring and data collection, waste water treatment, solid waste management, E- waste management technologies

3 Projects: Current: Ministry of Environment and Forests Analysis of surface and ground water contamination through indiscriminate use of Agrochemicals (pesticides) use in the region of crops of maximum pesticide usage (Rice, cotton and vegetables) ~30Lakh Vegetable and soil samples are also being analyses for pesticide residue. In addition, training to farmers for judicious use of pesticide including IPM

4 Among the sample analysis 40% of organochlorine pesticide were detected above MRL value of 0.1 ppb Organochlorine pesticides were detected more in river samples then the tube well samples. There level range from to in river samples, while in groundwater samples it ranged from0.017 to 0.917ppb Among the sample analysis 26% of organophosphate pesticide were detected above MRL value. In organophosphate pesticide Phorate, chlorpyriphos and Quinalaphos were found to be above MRL value Phorate range from to ppb, chlorpyriphos range from to ppb and Quinalaphos range from to ppb

5 Department of Science and Technology To study the dissipation leaching and persistence of chlorpyrifos in three types of soils with different pH i.e. acid, alkali and neutral As chlorpyrifos is being used indiscriminately in India for termite control in household and in agricultural practices for various crop protection packages without testing soil properties above parameters are being studied taking soil of different types from various parts of India

6 Ministry of Earth Sciences Study of contamination of soil and water through heavily loaded unlined drains in Delhi The project work is planned specially Keeping in view the problem of groundwater contamination in Indian context through unlined drains which are over loaded, with sewage waste from huge urban population and also waste from industries, lysimetric studies are important to know the possible sources and types of groundwater contamination through leaching

7 Completed Project Department of Science and Technology “Leaching Behavior Of Currently Used Pesticides In Different Types Of Soil” has received “New investigator Award” at American Chemical Society meeting, August, 08

8 Title: Incidence of Breast Cancer in relation to Environmental Toxicant (in collaboration with Dharamshila Hospital and Cancer Research Institute) Objectives: To study the association between PAHs and pesticides concentration in blood of the women suffering from malignant growth, breast cancer. To examine biochemical parameters as a mechanism(s) of their toxicity by estimating SOD (superoxidedismutase), CAT (catalase), GSH (glutathione) and MDA (malondialdehyde) Research Work:

9 Title: Physico and biochemical Assay of Organophosphorous pesticides for Human risk assessment. This work includes: 3D Model of Organophosphorous Pesticide molecules and enzyme acetyl cholinesterase(AChE) Docking of each molecules of organophosphorous pesticide with enzyme Acetylcholinesterase for inhibitory potential of such pesticides using suitable software( Discovery studio, argus lab, auto dock etc.) Structure activity analysis: Quantitative structure- activity relationship (QSAR) for enzyme activity Enzyme assays of most commonly used and most toxic organophosphorous pesticides
