Discussion of current issues in environmental chemistry (including soil, water, atmosphere):

Distribution and degradation of pollutants

* Platinum group elements and antimony in the environment
* Pathways of chlorinated contaminants
* Fate of hydrophobic organic contaminants (HOC) in soil
* Anaerobic biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons
* Anaerobic metabolism of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
* Biotransformation of chlorinated hydrocarbons under various redox potentials

Selected methods and techniques

* Thermal analysis of soil samples
* Solid phase NMR techniques
* g-Irradiation for the sterilization of soil samples
* Biodegradation signatures and biomarkers of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination
* Chemometrical approaches in environmental assessment


* Ecotoxicity of crude oil constituents
* Toxicity of PAHs and hetero-PAHs
* Changes in soil ecotoxicity due to bioremediation
