For medium to complex matrices, it is well know that GC/MS deconvolution is probably one of the most important and critical steps to get reliable identifications for screening assays. The ultimate task is to obtain best estimated spectra for the pure components present in the sample. Besides deconvolution, the identification algorithm used to match unknown spectra with a spectral library also can have big impact on the final identification results, especially for components at low to very low...

Recent advances in the sensitivity and selectivity and modern GC-MS instrumentation combined with the development of laboratory robotic systems have made it possible to miniaturise and automate traditional sample preparation methods without compromising compound limits of detection. In particular the application of fully automated Dispersive Liquid/Liquid Microextraction (DLLME) shows great promise for the extraction of a very wide range of organic pollutants from aqueous matrices. Combinatio...

Extraction of hydrocarbons within shale oil and gas formations present different technical and environmental challenges when compared to extraction from conventional hydrocarbons formations. The main concern is related to the use of hydraulic fracturing processes to break apart the rock and release the hydrocarbons. One of the primary environmental issues in relation to this process is the underground water supplies which can become contaminated by chemicals used in the fracking process as we...

Nitrogen and phosphorus are essential elements for humans as well as flora and fauna. In addition to their role as a nutrient their presence can also give important information about a sample e.g. the practice of over-fertilization or the likelihood of heavy metals being present in water bound to phosphate. Consequently, the determination of these elements is indispensable for the evaluation of water quality. The analysis of Total Nitrogen (TN) and Total Phosphorus (TP) to estimate such ri...

Presented at WWEM 2018. Nowadays, the tight environmental regulations demand a close control of the water quality in rivers, sea or even in waste waters. The water quality control require a regular monitoring due to continuous changes in several key parameters, such as seasonal water chemistry, overgrowing of plants, industrial waste and other factors. The chemical, physical and biological properties of the water define its quality. Currently, monitoring analytical parameters like the pH, te...

A fast and reliable characterisation of biodegradable organic matter (BOM) is essential to ensure efficient pollution removal by wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) along with a necessary reduction of the environmental footprint resulting from treatment process operation (energy and raw material consumption, greenhouse gas emission). Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) is a worldwide used indicator for assessing the BOM content of wastewater. The BOD measurement rests on a 100 years old analytical...
