Definition

(Noun) Sometimes known as "emerging pollutants of concern," microconstituents are chemicals found in a wide array of consumer goods, including pharmaceuticals and personal care products. Some of the microconstituents are considered to be "endocrine disrupters" (compounds such as synthetic estrogen, PCBs, dioxin and some pesticides that may interfere with or modify hormone processes within an organism).
Usage: In very low concentrations, some places where microconstituents may be found are: surface water, ground water, domestic and industrial wastewater and reclaimed water.
