Carbamazepine (CBZ) and oxcarbazepine (OXC) are widely used anticonvulsants that are extensively metabolized in the human body. The pharmaceuticals and their human metabolites are present in influents and effluents of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), in rivers and streams, and in drinking water. In this study, the biodegradation of OXC and its main(More)
A procedure was developed to assess the biodegradation of micropollutants in cell-free lysates produced from activated sludge of a municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). This proof-of-principle provides the basis for further investigations of micropollutant biodegradation via native enzymes in a solution of reduced complexity, facilitating downstream(More)
The present study investigated the hypothesis that the coupling of high-performance thin-layer chromatography with the yeast estrogen screen (planar-YES, p-YES) can be used as a screening tool for effect-directed analysis. Therefore, the proposed method was challenged for the first time with several real samples from various origins such as sediment pore(More)
A novel approach was investigated for the assessment of leaching from a one-component polyurethane (1C-PU) coating used for hydraulic structures using nontarget analysis via LC-QTOF-MS. Leaching behavior of the 1C-PU coating was studied using experiments in which the coating was exposed to water for defined periods (6 h, 24 h, 3 d, 14 d). Three hardening(More)
