Carbamazepine, which has been used in the treatments of epilepsy, is often found in the environment. Although metabolism of carbamazepine by humans and rats has been characterized, the environmental fate of carbamazepine has not been studied. In this study, two model fungi Cunninghamella elegans ATCC 9245 and Umbelopsis ramanniana R-56, which have(More)
The last two decades have witnessed growing scientific and public concerns over endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) that have the potential to alter the normal structure or functions of the endocrine system in wildlife and humans. In this study, the phenolic EDCs such as alkylphenol, chlorinated phenol and bisphenol A were considered. They are commonly(More)
Mesoporous silica SBA-15 and its postfunctionalized counterparts with hydroxymethyl (HM-SBA-15), aminopropyl (AP-SBA-15), and trimethylsilyl (TMS-SBA-15) were prepared and characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, N(2) adsorption-desorption measurement, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, and elemental analysis. The removal of a mixture of 12 selected(More)
In this study, the levels of 16 USEPA-prioritized polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were quantified in various environmental matrices in Ikpa River Basin and nearby dumpsites using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The levels of the contaminants were further subjected to models to estimate possible sources and potential risks. The results(More)
The hypolipidemic agent gemfibrozil (GEM), which has been studied for its metabolism in humans and animals, was investigated to elucidate its primary metabolism by Cunninghamella elegans. The fungus produced ten metabolites (FM1–FM9 and FM6′) from the biotransformation of GEM. Based on LC/MS/MS and NMR analyses, a major metabolite, FM7, was identified as(More)
