Many interesting applications of magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs) have recently been developed based on their magnetic properties and promising catalytic activity. Depending on their intended use, such nanoparticles (NPs) are frequently functionalized with proteins, polymers, or other organic molecules such as meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic a...
Article
The research on biocompatible ionic liquids is triggering a great interest in cholinium-based solvents, due to their alleged biocompatibility and biodegradability. However, the screening for choline degraders among different microbial sources from extreme locations revealed the suitability of just one halophilic strain (Halomonas sp. LM1C) to effic...

Recent efforts have been directed towards better understanding the persistency and toxicity of ionic liquids (ILs) in the context of the “benign-by-design” approach, but the assessment of their bioaccumulation potential remains neglected. This paper reports the experimental membrane partitioning of IL cations (imidazolium, pyridinium, pyrrolidinium...
Article
This work is a first approach to demonstrate the viability of a quantitative biotechnological removal of choline chloride from aqueous effluents. Despite the much vaunted biocompatibility of this ammonium-based ionic liquid it was demonstrated (both by an ad-hoc OECD F test and flask assays) that different microorganisms able to degrade persistent...

Expedient alkylation of 1-methyl-3H-imidazole-2-thione, a pharmaceutical active ingredient available in bulk quantities, provide high yield access to numerous protonated, or quaternized imidazoliums with chemospecific attachment of the fluoroponytail at the 2-mercapto functionality. The deprotonated primary target products represent valuable nitrog...
Article
Hypoglycaemic pharmaceuticals are recently more and more frequently detected in the environment. In our previous study, we have shown that even though many of them undergo significant primary degradation some are transformed to stable products or undergo such transformation that a large part of the structure is still preserved. One of the main rout...
Article
Nowadays, residual amounts of many pharmaceuticals can be found in various environmental compartments including surface and ground waters, soils and sediments as well as biota. Even though they undergo degradability, their environmental discharge is relatively continuous, thus they may be regarded as quasi-persistent contaminants, and are also freq...

Methyltrioxorhenium(VII) (MTO) is a highly efficient epoxidation catalyst with a broad substrate scope. Evaluation of its hazard potential shows that it is able to cause short-term (eco)toxicological effects with indications for genotoxicity. However, under catalytic conditions, MTO (and its catalytically active derivatives) decomposes slowly to pe...

Article
Full-text available
Sorption on solids and biodegradation are main phenomena that can mitigate the pollution of soil and water by ionic liquids (ILs). ILs sorbed on soil particles become immobilized (temporarily or permanently) which prevents them from spreading into deeper layers of soil or groundwater but which also makes them less bioavailable. In this study we att...

Besides the wide use of engineered nanomaterials (NMs) in technical products, their applications are not only increasing in biotechnology and biomedicine, but also in the environmental field. While the physico-chemical properties and behaviour of NMs can be characterized accurately under idealized conditions, this is no longer the case in complex p...

Water-soluble ionic liquids may be considered analogues to cationic surfactants with a corresponding surface activity and ability to create organized structures in aqueous solutions. For the first time the enhanced solubility of the aromatic hydrocarbons - benzene, toluene and xylene - in aqueous micellar systems of 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium chlo...
Article
Ionic liquids (ILs) have attracted great interest in academia and industry during the last decade. So far, several ILs have been used in technological processes, from small scale to industrial applications, which makes it more and more likely that they will be released into the environment. Researchers have been actively studying the environmental...
Article
Inorganic salts usually influence water structure affecting the hydration of the molecules which lead to a salting-in or a salting-out effect of hydrophobic compounds. Specific conductivity and isothermal titration calorimetry have been used to study the effect of inorganic salts on aggregation of the cationic surfactant 1-decyl-3-methylimidazolium...
Article
As ionic liquids are winning more attention from industry as a replacement of more hazardous chemicals, some of their structures have the potential to become persistent pollutants due to high stability towards abiotic and biotic degradation processes. Therefore it is important to determine the hazard associated with the presence of ILs in the envir...

The fate of ionic liquids in soils and sediments is significant for the sustainable application of ILs in industry. We are obliged to understand how these compounds are transformed in (bio-) chemical processes and how long they will persist in the environment. In addition, we must understand how ionic liquids interact in complex systems. This revie...

Ionic liquids (ILs) are known to be non-volatile and thus to have low potential for atmospheric contamination or intoxication of humans by inhalation. However ILs have the potential to contaminate soil and water as they might be water soluble and can be sorbed onto solids. The investigation of possible natural ways of reducing the concentration of...
Article
Full-text available
Some ionic liquids (ILs) are structurally analogous to surfactants, especially those, which contains long alkyl chain organic cations. Characteristic composition of alkylimidazolium ILs indicates that solid phase surface behavior could influence the properties of the systems containing these compounds. Ability to self associate could influence on p...

Project
Microplastics (MP, plastic particles <5mm) are a subject of intense research, due to the enormous release of plastic to the environment and the arising environmental concerns. Mechanical and chemical stress that a fabric undergoes during the domestic washing cause fibre shedding, as a result synthetic MPs are introduced into wastewater. The project brings together academia, textile manufactures and environmental management agencies to gain a better understanding of release and environmental fate of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) based MPs from textiles and to finally derive approaches to reduce their emission into the environment
