  • Moscow snow reveals new air pollutants

    GC-MS analysis of Moscow snow reveals new pollutants in the city air. Cities, with their traffic, industrial centers and factories, usually suffer from some degree of air pollution. Moscow, which houses all of these as well as power plants and an oil refinery, is no different. Regular monitoring of environmental pollutants is common practice in many cities and priority pollutants are detected and ...

  • Heterotrophic monitoring at a drinking water treatment plant by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization–time of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry after different drinking water treatments

    The aim of this work was to assess the suitability of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization–time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) for routine heterotrophic monitoring in a drinking water treatment plant. Water samples were collected from raw surface water and after different treatments during two campaigns over a 1-year period. Heterotrophic bacteria were studied and isolates ...
