Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Enzyme

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental chemistry, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, Chromatography, Human exposure and Contamination. His Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from Pesticide, Persistent organic pollutant, Pollutant, Hexachlorobenzene and Hexabromocyclododecane. Adrian Covaci works mostly in the field of Hexachlorobenzene, limiting it down to concerns involving Animal science and, occasionally, Umbilical cord and Toxicology.

Adrian Covaci focuses mostly in the field of Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, narrowing it down to matters related to Congener and, in some cases, Accipiter. His Contamination study deals with Phosphate intersecting with Organophosphate. His Sewage study, which is part of a larger body of work in Environmental engineering, is frequently linked to Poison control, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Novel brominated flame retardants : A review of their analysis, environmental fate and behaviour (927 citations)
  • Levels and trends of brominated flame retardants in the European environment. (707 citations)
  • Hexabromocyclododecanes (HBCDs) in the environment and humans: a review. (602 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Adrian Covaci focuses on Environmental chemistry, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, Chromatography, Pollutant and Contamination. His work on Biomonitoring is typically connected to Human exposure as part of general Environmental chemistry study, connecting several disciplines of science. His Biomonitoring research incorporates elements of Urine and Environmental health.

As a part of the same scientific study, Adrian Covaci usually deals with the Urine, concentrating on Metabolite and frequently concerns with Phosphate. Adrian Covaci interconnects Congener, Hexabromocyclododecane, Animal science and Organochlorine pesticide in the investigation of issues within Polybrominated diphenyl ethers. His Pollutant research includes elements of Feather, Pollution and Bioaccumulation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (35.66%)
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (21.69%)
  • Chromatography (18.01%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Chromatography (18.01%)
  • Environmental chemistry (35.66%)
  • Urine (7.23%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Chromatography, Environmental chemistry, Urine, Pollutant and Biomonitoring. Adrian Covaci works mostly in the field of Chromatography, limiting it down to topics relating to Biotransformation and, in certain cases, Microsome, as a part of the same area of interest. The various areas that he examines in his Environmental chemistry study include Wastewater, Contamination, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers and Plasticizer.

His Polybrominated diphenyl ethers research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pesticide, Hexachlorobenzene, Congener and Animal science. His Urine research also works with subjects such as

  • Organophosphate which intersects with area such as Phosphate and Metabolite,
  • Adipate most often made with reference to Phthalate,
  • Environmental health that connect with fields like MDMA. The concepts of his Pollutant study are interwoven with issues in Feather and Pollution.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A review of semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in the indoor environment: occurrence in consumer products, indoor air and dust (97 citations)
  • Multi-pathway human exposure assessment of phthalate esters and DINCH (67 citations)
  • Urinary metabolites of organophosphate esters: Concentrations and age trends in Australian children (56 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Biomonitoring, Contamination, Organophosphate and Wastewater. His studies deal with areas such as Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, Pollutant and Plasticizer as well as Environmental chemistry. Adrian Covaci has included themes like Trophic level, Pesticide and Animal science in his Polybrominated diphenyl ethers study.

The Biomonitoring study which covers Food safety that intersects with Profiling, Morning and Tolerable daily intake. His studies in Contamination integrate themes in fields like Animal proteins, Biotechnology, World population and Dechlorane plus. His Organophosphate research incorporates themes from Metabolite, Urine and Half-life.
