Development of a fast chromatographic method for the detection of organoarsenic antimicrobials
New protocols were developed for the routine analysis of the organoarsenic drugs roxarsone (4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenylarsonic acid), p-arsanilic acid, and acetarsone (Nacetyl-4-hydroxy-m-arsanilic acid) based on ion-pairing ...
Use of polydimethyl siloxane microparticles for the sequestering of model pollutants in water
Polymer micro and nanoparticles are an emerging type of material with promising applications for remediation and degradation of environmental contaminants in water, due to their enhanced surface area and chemical reactivity. ...
Metal-polymer nanocomposites as raman probes for the identification of model probiotics, gram-negative and gram- positive bioactive agents
Despite recent advances, there is still a need to improve existing technology to achieve faster, more efficient identification tools for bacterial detection and monitoring. Raman scattering is information-rich vibrational ...
Novel bio-inspired structures and sample translation approaches for the Raman detection of pharmaceutical agents in water
Over the years the widespread use of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) has become an emerging environmental problem affecting agriculture, ecological systems, and water quality as well. Surface Enhanced ...
Development of plasmonic nanostructures as raman sensors for the detection of arsenic antimicrobials
Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products (PPCP’s) have been considered as a new category of emerging pollutants due to their persistence in the environment. These compounds have been a cause of concern since they have ...
