The role of the natural environment in the emergence of antibiotic resistance in gram-negative bacteria.
During the past 10 years, multidrug-resistant Gram-negative Enterobacteriaceae have become a substantial challenge to infection control. It has been suggested by clinicians that the effectiveness ofExpand

Uptake and depuration of pharmaceuticals in aquatic invertebrates.
The uptake and depuration of a range of pharmaceuticals in the freshwater shrimp (Gammarus pulex) and the water boatman (Notonecta glauca) was studied. For one compound, studies were also done usingExpand

Application of hydrodynamic chromatography-ICP-MS to investigate the fate of silver nanoparticles in activated sludge
Detection and characterisation are two of the major challenges in understanding the fate, behaviour and occurrence of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in the natural environment. In a previous paperExpand

A robust size-characterisation methodology for studying nanoparticle behaviour in ‘real’ environmental samples, using hydrodynamic chromatography coupled to ICP-MS
A hyphenated methodology has been developed and validated, which utilizes the extensive size separation range of hydrodynamic chromatography (here: 5–300 nm) combined with the multi-elementExpand

Temporal and spatial variation in pharmaceutical concentrations in an urban river system.
Many studies have quantified pharmaceuticals in the environment, few however, have incorporated detailed temporal and spatial variability due to associated costs in terms of time and materials. Here,Expand
