Abstract

Highly selective molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) towards benzyl methyl ketone (BMK) were synthesized for application as recognition elements in a capacitive sensor. A computational approach was employed to select the most appropriate monomers and cross-linkers. Using the selected compounds,...

Abstract

Phthalates (PAEs), bisphenol A (BPA), and oestrogenic compounds have become major concerns due to their endocrine-disrupting effect. However, few studies related to the occurrence of PAEs, BPA, and oestrogen in food and compost from different growth age livestock have been conducted. In this study, ...

Abstract

Aquatic contamination from the accumulation of pharmaceuticals has induced severe toxicological impact to the ecological environment, especially from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Real-time monitoring of flutamide, which is a class of NSAIDs, is very significant in environmental...

Abstract

The presence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in wastewater samples has been documented in several countries. Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) is potentially effective for early warning of a COVID-19 outbreak. In this study, presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in wastewater ...
