Aptamer based tools for environmental and therapeutic monitoring: A review of developments, applications, future perspectivesPublication
Nucleic acids in the form of aptamers play a growing and significant role in the targeted and rapid analysis of environmental sample composition and medical analyses. In this paper, the review of both aptamers synthesis methods as well as application of these short chain oligonucleotides (with critical comments on their strong and weak features) are given. The first ones include: systematic evolution of ligands by exponential enrichment...
Renewable natural resources as green alternative substrates to obtain bio-based non-isocyanate polyurethanes-reviewPublication
Commercially available polyurethanes are synthesized by the polyaddition of diisocyanates with polyols and low molecular weight chain extenders. A new approach to polyurethanes synthesis is realized via non-isocyanate routes. Negative impacts of petroleum-based chemicals on the environment and human health as well as gradual reduction of fuel-based resources, which leads to an increase in their prices, are an incentive to looking...
Polyurethanes are among the most developed types of polymers. They are produced from the three primary components, i.e., polyols, low-molecular-weight glycols used as chain extenders, and diisocyanates. Until recently, all these substrates have been obtained via petrochemical processes. A decrease in petroleum-based resources and new ecological trends in chemistry, chemical technology, and materials engineering have generated increasing...
State of the art in the field of emission reduction of sulphur dioxide produced during coal combustionPublication
The need for clean coal technologies to reduce the adverse environmental impact of coal combustion products has been grounded. The article deals with information concerning present and future technologies, directed towards the struggle against air pollution by SO2, produced during coal combustion. Their classification and critical rating from economical and technological points of views (including those developed by authors) have...
lastics have become widely used materials in everyday life due to their special properties such as durability, easy processing, light-weight and low-cost of production. However, because of their stable and non-biodegradable nature, postconsumer plastics become an issue to the environment. The growing amounts of waste are generated, as plastic products are commonly used only once before disposal. The alternatives of practical techniques...
Human activities produce contaminants, the amounts and toxicity of which often exceed the environment’s homeostatic capacity to cleanse itself. Hence, the systematic analysis and monitoring of the environment is increasingly a matter of urgency. Honey bees, thanks to their morphological features, and also bee products are regarded as good indicators of environmental pollution by toxic substances, be these heavy metals, radioactive...
Sensory analysis is applied in many areas of daily life. It is used to carry out the sensory evaluation of foodstuffs or other products and to evaluate the properties of odors present in the environment. The authors attempt to summarize the knowledge on the classification and application of sensory analysis methods to evaluate the odor nuisance of air, which allows the identification of sensory impressions and determination of...
Since the beginning of time, civilizations have looked for more creative ways to dominate and defeat their enemies. The rapid development of the chemical industry just before the Second World War started the era of modern chemical weapon production based on poisons, including toxic arsenic compounds. This paper provides a detailed overview of the production, usage and destruction of this dangerous chemical weapon. Milestones include:...
Organomercury compounds in environmental samples: emission sources, toxicity, environmental fate and determination.Publication
In view of the specific properties of mercury and its capability of forming compounds that can be bioaccumulated and biomagnified at successive levels of the trophic pyramid, it has become necessary to gather detailed information on the sources of emission of this element into the environment and its fate there. Moreover, the increasing awareness of the relationship between the toxicity of mercury and its chemical form has sharpened...
As a result of the industrialization and urbanization in the world, human pressure on the environment is intensifying, leading to detrimental changes in both biotic and abiotic compartments. One of the many consequences of this state of affairs is the increasing rate of emission into the atmosphere of volatile organic compounds, including the so-called BTEX (benzene, ethylbenzene, toluene, xylenes) compounds. The authors review...
Tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals, and 44 compoundshave been classified as human carcinogens. Toxicity can beboth mainstream smoke as well as the constituents of environmentaltobacco smoke. In the light of this evidence, work is intensifyingon assessing exposure on the basis of the results of tests performedto quantify the amounts of suitable environmental tobacco smokeconstituent biomarkers in samples of biological...
The tendency for BTEX compounds (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes) to spread into all compartments of the environment together with their influence on both ecosystem and human health means that the emission of thesecompounds into the air is becoming the matter of worldwide concern. The legal regulations introduced by the European Union governing the assessment and management of air quality obliges member states to systematically...
The authors set out and classify the principles of operation of known types of cloud water collectors, and critically review their advantages and drawbacks. Analysis of the literature has yielded information on the parameters of various type of collectors—sampling time, the type of cloud from which the water sample was taken, droplet diameter collected with 50% efficiency (cut off), sample analytes/ parameters determined, types...

Runoff waters from airport areas constitute a serious environmentalproblem. It is essential to monitor levels of pollutants emitted intothe environment and measure their toxicity on a continuous basis.The authors' aim was to critically review data on pollution fromaviation fuel combustion, aviation fuel spillage, the washing andcleaning of aircraft and airport service equipment, and the useof de-/anti-icing agents published in...
The assessment of a hazard resulting from the pollution of the environment by chemical compounds is in principle limited to the determination of their concentrations in its various compartments. But for solving many problems in this context, knowledge of the emission sources, transport pathways, and sites of deposition is of great benefit. By far the largest amounts of pollutants, regardless of where they were discharged, end up...
W artykule przedstawiono i omówiono w sposób krytyczny dane literaturowe na temat:- źródeł emisji związkow chromu do środowiska,- specjacji chromu w poszczególnych elementach środowiska- oddziaływania chromu na organizmy żywe,- procedur analitycznych wykorzystywanych w badaniach specjacji chromu i próbkach środowiskowych
Od momentu pobrania próbki do wykonania tej analizy wody mogą zmieniać swoje właściwości na skutek zachodzących w nich procesów chemicznych, fizycznych, czy też biologicznych. W pracy omówiono zmiany mogące zachodzić w próbkach wodnych oraz przyczyny ich występowania. Szczególną uwagę zwrócono na reakcje chemiczne, procesy fizykochemiczne, reakcje biochemiczne i fotochemiczne. Przedstawiono również techniki konserwacji próbek wód...
