Toxic potency and effects of diffuse air pollution
Diffuse air pollution consists of an omnipresent complex mixture of pollutants that is emitted from many widely dispersed sources as traffic, industries, households, energy plants, wasteExpand
Ecological risk estimation of organophosphorus pesticides in riverine ecosystems.
TLDR
Chlorpyrifos posed a higher risk than diazinon along the Langat River, suggesting that organisms and humans could be exposed to potentially high levels of OPPs. Expand
Ecotoxicology – How to Assess the Impact of Toxicants in a Multi-Factorial Environment?
Ecotoxicology assesses the fate of contaminants in the environment and contaminant effects on constituents of the biosphere. With respect to effects assessment, current ecotoxicology uses mainlyExpand
The Application of Toxicogenomics for (Drinking) Water Quality Assessment
TLDR
An overview of innovative omic methods and the mechanisms behind certain genomics technologies are explained and the main focus is on the potential application of DNA microarrays that are able to measure the impact of toxic substances on gene expression, i.e. transcription of DNA to mRNA (transcriptomics).

CHAPTER 1 Sources and Toxicity of Pollutants
Modern living standards depend largely on the production and usage of thousands of chemicals, many of which are toxic and synthetically produced. These substances are discharged into the air, soil,Expand
Assessment of Different Substrates for Removal of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds in Wasterwater and the Potential Effects on Food Chain Pathways
Treating endocrine disrupting compounds (EDC’s) in domestic wastewater has become a major concern for the safety of human health and the environment. Human derived EDC’s, such as 17βestradiol areExpand

Chemical pollution and ecotoxicology
1. Baltic Sea organisms appear to be particularly sensitive to persistent hazardous substances because many of them are physiologically stressed in their brackish-water environment. 2.Expand
Ecotoxicity of Nanomaterials Used for Remediation
Remediation using nanoparticles depends on proper documentation of safety aspects, one of which is their ecotoxicology. Ecotoxicology of nanoparticles has some special features; while traditionalExpand
Heavy Metal Transport and Fate in the Environmental Compartments
This review article will address transports, fates, and behaviors of heavy metals in different environmental compartments (air-water-soil-biota), especially their processes of sinks andExpand
