Phytotoxins of various classes and origin are often found in their cationic form in the soil environment and thus, their overall soil behavior may be strongly affected by all geosorbents presenting cation exchange capacity (CEC). In addition to soil organic carbon (SOC), clays may exhibit great potential as sorbents for cationic organic chemicals. Therefore, 52 compounds of the major phytotoxin classes alkaloids, terpenoids and steroids were investigated with regard to their sorption behavior to...

Natural toxins are multifunctional, often ionizable organic compounds increasingly detected in the environment. Surprisingly little is known about their interactions with soil organic carbon, altho...

Substantial efforts have been made to monitor potentially hazardous anthropogenic contaminants in surface waters while for plant secondary metabolites (PSMs) almost no data on occurrence in the water cycle are available. These metabolites enter river waters through various pathways such as leaching, surface run-off and rain sewers or input of litter from vegetation and might add to the biological activity of the chemical mixture. To reduce this data gap, we conducted a LC–HRMS target screening i...

To protect themselves, plants can produce toxic secondary metabolites (phytotoxins) that appear with widely varying structures and negative effects. These phytotoxins often show similar properties as known aquatic micropollutants in terms of mobility, persistence, toxicity, and possibly also ecotoxicity. However, their occurrence in surface waters remains largely unknown, which is also due to unknown ability of available screening approaches to detect them. Therefore, we performed a target and s...

Natural toxins are widely occurring, highly diverse organic compounds produced by, for example, plants or fungi. In predictive environmental fate and risk assessment of organic chemicals for regulatory purposes, the octanol–water partition coefficient (Kow) remains one of the key parameters. However, experimental data for natural toxins are largely missing, and the current estimation models for Kow show limited applicability for multifunctional, ionizable compounds. Thus, log Kow data were first...

Abstract This study underlines the significance of long chain fatty acid (LCFA) content in wastewater influents as an influencing factor promoting the growth of Candidatus ‘Microthrix parvicella’ (M. parvicella), the most common filamentous bacteria causing foam in activated sludge systems worldwide. Quantification of M. parvicella by real-time polymerase chain reaction (real-time PCR) and analysis of LCFAs by means of two-dimensional gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GCxGC/qMS)...
