Research Topics
  • Toxic xenobiotic in human diet and evaluation of the tolerable daily intake (TDI).
  • Study of distribution and fate of persistent organic pollutants in mediterranean and polar organisms.
  • Toxic xenobiotic in seafood.
  • Toxicity evaluation of the dioxin-like compounds with TEF method.
  • Use of enantiomeric compounds to study transport and accumulation of xenobiotic in Antarctic organisms .
  • Determination and distribution of micro-organic pollutants in water, SPM, sediments and organisms
Research activities / Ongoing Projects
