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

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

Characterization of cocoa liquors by GC-MS and LC-MS/MS: focus on alkylpyrazines and flavanols.
Flavor is one of the most important characteristics of chocolate products and is due to a complex volatile fraction, depending both on the cocoa bean genotype and the several processes occurringExpand

Stir Bar Sorptive Extraction and LC–MS/MS for Trace Analysis of UV Filters in Different Water Matrices
A simple, selective and highly sensitive method was developed and optimized to determine the most commonly used UV filters with endocrine-disrupting potential in water, namely benzophenone-3 (BP-3),Expand

Innovative sampling and extraction methods for the determination of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in water.
Two different innovative approaches were used for the determination of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in water: stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE) and passive sampling, followed byExpand

Marine environment pollution: The contribution of mass spectrometry to the study of seawater.
The study of marine pollution has been traditionally addressed to persistent chemicals, generally known as priority pollutants; a current trend in environmental analysis is a shift toward "emergingExpand

Combining spectroscopic techniques and chemometrics for the interpretation of lichen biomonitoring of air pollution.
A screening evaluation of lichen thalli, based on spectroscopic techniques coupled with chemometrics, is proposed as fast, simple and "green" method for the biomonitoring of air pollution. For twoExpand
