Special Issue Description
The term "plastic" is a generic name including most of the synthetic and semisynthetic organic polymers that are competent to show versatility. These materials are perfect for a huge assortment of applications due to their flexibility, toughness, lightweight, chemically inert conductivity, and their low-cost-production, among others. All these extraordinary highlights seem to clarify why worldwide plastic production has expanded essentially over the past decades. Additionally, specialists agree that shopper needs will not decrease shortly. Thus, by 2050, the world’s plastic generation is estimated to surpass 1000 million metric tons per year.
Although the societal benefits of plastic materials are indubitable, the poor management of plastic debris over the last decades has driven plastics to be one of the biggest parcels of municipal waste. Microplastics have gotten to be one of the driving natural dangers due to their persistence, Ubi ubiquity natural harmful potential. The potential hurt that microplastics force on ecosystems varies from coordinate impacts (i.e., trap and ingestion) to their capacity to sorb a difference of environmental toxins (e.g., heavy metals, persistent organic compounds, or pharmaceuticals). Therefore, the toxicological evaluation of the combined impacts of microplastics and sorbed pollutants can deliver in biota is one of the sultriest points in the environmental toxicology field.
