Distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the sediments of the Adriatic Sea.
Distribution of the sixteen polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) indicated from USEPA as priority pollutants was studied in surface sediments of two coastal areas of the Adriatic Sea. PAHs wereExpand

A simple recirculating flow system for the calibration of polar organic chemical integrative samplers (POCIS): effect of flow rate on different water pollutants.
A calibration system for POCIS was developed and used to calculate the sampling rates of eight analytes belonging to pesticides, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and perfluorinated compounds:Expand

Trace metal speciation in coastal and off-shore sediments from Ross Sea (Antarctica)
Abstract The information on total metal concentration in sediments is not sufficient to assess the metal behaviour in the environment, while speciation studies are more effective in estimatingExpand

Temporal distribution of trace metals in Antarctic coastal waters
Abstract In the framework of the Italian Research Programme in Antarctica, a nearshore station positioned inside the Gerlache Inlet (Terra Nova Bay, Western Ross Sea) was regularly sampled during theExpand

Combining passive samplers and biomonitors to evaluate endocrine disrupting compounds in a wastewater treatment plant by LC/MS/MS and bioassay analyses.
Two types of integrative sampling approaches (passive samplers and biomonitors) were tested for their sampling characteristics of selected endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs). Chemical analysesExpand

Rapid and selective determination of UV filters in seawater by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry combined with stir bar sorptive extraction.
Fast liquid chromatography coupled to triple-quadrupole tandem mass spectrometry was employed for the determination of six UV filters in seawater. The separation of the analytes was achieved in lessExpand

Emerging pollutants in aquatic environments: monitoring of UV filters in urban wastewater treatment plants
Six UV filters – benzophenone-3 (BP-3), octocrylene (OC), ethylhexyl dimethyl p-aminobenzoate (OD-PABA), ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate (EHMC), ethylhexyl salicylate (EHS) and homosalate (HMS) – withExpand

Determination of polychlorinated biphenyls in fish: optimisation and validation of a method based on accelerated solvent extraction and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
A simple and robust method for the determination of 18 polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in fish was developed and validated. A mixture of acetone/n-hexane (1:1, v/v) was selected for acceleratedExpand

Interdisciplinary study for the evaluation of biochemical alterations on mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis exposed to a tributyltin-polluted area
An interdisciplinary approach was employed to monitor the concentration and the effects of butyltin compounds in mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis). Tissues from animals exposed to a marine areaExpand
