Poly(3,4‐ethylenedioxythiophene) and Its Derivatives: Past, Present, and Future
An overview of one of the most successful conducting polymers, poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDT) and its derivatives, is presented, detailing its early development, the synthesis of numerousExpand
Prediction of ecotoxicological behaviour of chemicals: Relationship between n-octanol/water partition coefficient and bioaccumulation of organic chemicals by alga Chlorella
The bioaccumulation potential of organic chemicals by the green alga Chlorella fusca was determined. A quantitative relationship was found to exist between the lipophilicity (n-octanol/waterExpand
Environmental hazard profile of organic chemicals: An experimental method for the assessment of the behaviour of organic chemicals in the ecosphere by means of simple laboratory tests with 14C
The concept of “Environmental Hazard Profile” developed at this institute has been tested with 100 14C-labelled organic compounds. Concentration factors in activated sludge, in algae and fish wereExpand
Prediction of ecotoxicological behaviour of chemicals: Relationship between physico-chemical properties and bioaccumulation of organic chemicals in the mussel Mytilus edulis
Abstract The analysis presented in this paper shows that water solubility as well as the n-octanol/water partition coefficient are useful indicators of the tendency of organic chemicals toExpand
Effects of dissolved humic materials on acute toxicity of some organic chemicals to aquatic organisms
Abstract The influence of dissolved humic materials (DHM) on the acute toxicity of diazinon, tetrabromobisphenol-A (TBP), 4-chloroanilin (4-CA) and pentachlorophenol (PCP) was evaluated using theExpand
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the marine environment, particularly in the Mediterranean.
The data for mussels and fish give a clear indication that the PCB levels are higher in the Northwest and the Tyrrhenian Sea than in the eastern Mediterranean, and the amount of PCBs ingested via food by the Mediterranean population is unknown. Expand
Ecotoxicological profile analysis. VII. Screening chemicals for their environmental behavior by comparative evaluation.
Abstract A standardized, feasible test system for assessing the environmental behavior of chemicals in ecotoxicological terms and for setting up priority lists was described earlier. 14C chemicalsExpand
Capillary electrophoresis in the analysis of humic substances: Facts and artifacts
Abstract Humic substances, extracted as mixtures from soil and surface waters according to their solubility in acids and bases, are relatively high-molecular-mass polyelectrolytes containingExpand
Development of capillary electrophoresis methods for the analysis of fluoroquinolones and application to the study of the influence of humic substances on their photodegradation in aqueous phase
Abstract Analytical techniques in capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) and capillary electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC) were developed for the analysis of fluoroquinolone carboxylic acidsExpand
Separation of s-triazine herbicides and their metabolites by capillary zone electrophoresis as a function of pH
The effects of buffer pH on electrophoretic mobility of various s-triazines (chloro-, hydroxy-, methoxy- and thiomethyl-s-triazines) in light of their chemical properties have been studied. GoodExpand
