THE INFLUENCE OF DANUBE RIVER HYDROGRAPHIC AND THERMIC FACTORS ON FISH STOCKS DYNAMICS IN RAZIM-SINOE LAGOON SYSTEM
Chioveanu C., (Corresponding) Simionov I., Patriche N., Tenciu M., Dragomir E., Oprea L.
Climate change mitigation and adaptation
The Romanian fishing areas extends over 7000 km2 and 50% of the numbers of authorised fishers conduct their activities in the Danube areas. Inland fisheries are highly important for income, food security and nutrition. Inland peri-rural fisheries face degradation due to climate change. According to...Read more

Geochemical modeling as a tool to investigate chromium contamination in groundwater
(Corresponding) Apollaro C., Fuoco I.
Soil and groundwater contamination and remediation
The geochemical modeling is an essential tool to understand the water-rock interaction processes. In this work has been used the reaction path modelling to investigate the release and fate of geogenic Cr in ophiolitic Italian areas. During the water-rock interaction the geogenic trivalent Cr...Read more
Preliminary study on Cr-rich groundwater treatment by membrane processes
(Corresponding) Fuoco I., Figoli A., brozzo g., De Rosa R., Bloise A., Criscuoli A., (Corresponding) Apollaro C.
Efficient water resources management in cr(vi) impacted water bodies
The aim of this work has been treat Cr- rich groundwaters through membranes processes as alternative to conventional methods. Chromium (Cr) is a dangerous element for environment and human health. Commonly, the highest concentrations Cr are detected in ophiolitic areas where ultramafic and...Read more
FAST AND COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS OF MAJOR USE ANTIBIOTICS BY UHPLC-HIGH RESOLUTION & HIGH MASS ACCURACY HYBRID LINEAR ION- TRAP- ORBITRAP MASS SPECTROMETRY
KALAMPOKA M., BOTI V., (Corresponding) SAKKAS V., ALBANIS T.
Antibiotics constitute one of the most important emerging classes of environmental pollutants. This is due to their diverse use: in veterinary medicine to treat bacterial disease and protect the health of livestock as well as in human medicine to ensure human health safety. They are a prominent...Read more
Optimization of fabric phase sorptive extraction for the determination of selected pharmaceuticals in environmental waters
JIMENEZ-HOLGADO C., VOURDAS N., STATHOPOULOS V., (Corresponding) SAKKAS V.
There is a growing public and scientific concern about the possibility of ecosystem and human health effects from pharmaceuticals in environment. Results have shown that several types of environmental waters (drinking water, groundwater, surface water, treated water) were contaminated by the...Read more

Origin of Cr in alluvial sediments and ultramafic rocks in Sultanate of Oman. Magnetic fractionation and sunlight effect.
(Corresponding) Moraetis D., Al-Suhai S., Pracejus B., Pyrgaki K., Argyraki A., Dermatas D.
Soil and groundwater contamination and remediation
The present study attempts to identify the sources of Cr(VI) in a coastal alluvial fan soil and soil from a chromite mine. In addition investigates the effect of photochemically oxidized organic matter in the Cr(VI) mobilization in soil. The alluvial bulk soil samples contain several evidence of...Read more
Biosorption of Mn(II) ions from water solutions by natural sorbent: equilibrium study
(Corresponding) Mustafa E., Aliu F., Atkovska K., Kuvendziev S., Dimitrovski D., Bozhinovski Z., Marinkovski M., Lisichkov K.
In the modern society, the problem of the treatment of natural and wastewater resources and their management, is becoming very important.
Of particular interest is the definition of adequate and sophisticated procedures for the treatment of natural and wastewater resources, regardless of whether...Read more
Fluoride-free Anodization of Titanium and the Photocatalytic Behaviour the Produced TiO2 Nanostructures
Taylor C., (Corresponding) Wenk J., Mattia D.
Advanced oxidation processes
Current methods for anodizing titania to produce immobilized titanium dioxide (TiO2) photocatalyst require the use of hazardous fluoride electrolytes. A fluoride-free electrolyte anodization method was developed. The electrolytes tested in this study were both bromide- and chloride-based and...Read more
Experimental approach for metabolic disorders as a tool to investigate impact of environment on reproductive health
(Corresponding) Pavlova E., Lakova E., Vladov I., Zapryanova S., Gluhcheva Y., Ivanov I., Svechnikov K., Atanassova N.
Environmental exposures and human health
The epidemics of obesity and diabetes have occurred contemporaneously with increasing use and exposure to environmental endocrine disrupting chemicals. Metabolic disorders affect male reproductive potential due to low sperm count and quality, reduced sperm motility and suppression of...Read more
Tissue-specific TfR expression in organs of immature mice after chronic exposure to CoCl2
Gluhcheva Y., Petrova E., (Corresponding) Pavlova E., Tinkov A., AJSUVAKOVA O., Rashev P., Vladov I., Skalny A.
Heavy metals in the environment
The wide use of cobalt (Co) due to anthropogenic and industrial activities has increased its concentration in the environment in the last years. Cobalt chloride (CoCl2) is the most commonly used agent in experimental models for inducing chemical hypoxia. The present study was designed to elucidate...Read more
