Portable dehumidifiers condensed water: A novel matrix for the screening of semi-volatile compounds in indoor air
The comprehensive identification of organic species existing in indoor environments is a key issue to understand their impact in human health. This study proposes the analysis of condensed water samples, collected with ...
Residues of anilinopyrimidine fungicides and suspected metabolites in wine samples
The coexistence of the anilinopyrimidine fungicides pyrimethanil (PYR) and cyprodinil (CYP), and suspected metabolites in wine samples was investigated by liquid chromatography (LC) with tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS), ...
First nation-wide estimation of tobacco consumption in Spain using wastewater-based epidemiology
Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) has become a very useful tool to monitor a population's drug consumption or exposure to environmental and food contaminants. In this work, WBE has been applied to estimate tobacco ...
Assessing population exposure to phthalate plasticizers in thirteen Spanish cities through the analysis of wastewater
Phthalates are widely used plasticizers that produce endocrine-disrupting disorders. Quantifying exposure is crucial to perform risk assessments and to develop proper health measures. Herein, a wastewater-based epidemiology ...
Can UV-C laser pulsed irradiation be used for the removal of organic micropollutants from water? Case study with ibuprofen
A novel approach based on the direct pulsed irradiation of UV-C light onto ibuprofen (IBP) solutions was evaluated in this work, as proof of concept for the direct removal of micropollutants. The experiments confirmed that ...
