Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Organic chemistry
  • Biochemistry

Environmental chemistry, Bioassay, Toxicity, Water quality and Wastewater are her primary areas of study. Beate I. Escher specializes in Environmental chemistry, namely Dissolved organic carbon. Her Bioassay research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ultrapure water and Genotoxicity.

Her research integrates issues of Oxidative stress, Biochemistry and Ecotoxicology in her study of Toxicity. Her Water quality study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Environmental quality, Water pollutants, Pollutant and Surface water. Beate I. Escher has included themes like Waste disposal, Effluent and Sewage treatment in her Wastewater study.

Her most cited work include:

  • The Challenge of Micropollutants in Aquatic Systems (2084 citations)
  • Modes of action in ecotoxicology: their role in body burdens, species sensitivity, QSARs, and mixture effects. (364 citations)
  • Environmental toxicology and risk assessment of pharmaceuticals from hospital wastewater. (323 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Bioassay, Toxicity, Chromatography and Wastewater. Her Environmental chemistry research includes elements of Partition coefficient, Pollutant, Contamination, Water quality and Water treatment. Her Bioassay study combines topics in areas such as Oxidative stress, In vitro, Bioanalysis, Pesticide and Genotoxicity.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Quantitative structure–activity relationship, Mode of action, Biochemistry and Pharmacology in addition to Toxicity. Her Chromatography research focuses on Solubility and how it relates to Polymer. Her Wastewater study incorporates themes from Waste disposal, Surface water, Effluent and Sewage treatment.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (81.14%)
  • Bioassay (59.43%)
  • Toxicity (34.65%)

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

  • Bioassay (59.43%)
  • Environmental chemistry (81.14%)
  • In vitro (12.50%)

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

Beate I. Escher focuses on Bioassay, Environmental chemistry, In vitro, Chromatography and Toxicity. Her Bioassay research integrates issues from Extraction, Bioavailability, Surface water and Cytotoxicity. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pollutant, Wastewater, Water quality, Bioanalysis and Sewage treatment.

Her research investigates the connection between Pollutant and topics such as Contamination that intersect with issues in Environmental monitoring and Passive sampling. Her work on Solid-phase microextraction as part of general Chromatography research is often related to Naproxen, thus linking different fields of science. She has researched Toxicity in several fields, including Bioconcentration and Quantitative structure–activity relationship.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Effect-based trigger values for in vitro and in vivo bioassays performed on surface water extracts supporting the environmental quality standards (EQS) of the European Water Framework Directive. (85 citations)
  • An ecotoxicological view on neurotoxicity assessment (72 citations)
  • An ecotoxicological view on neurotoxicity assessment (72 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Organic chemistry
  • Biochemistry

Her primary areas of study are Bioassay, Environmental chemistry, Water quality, Water Framework Directive and Pollutant. Her studies deal with areas such as Bioanalysis, Extraction, Toxicity and Surface water as well as Bioassay. Her work deals with themes such as Chromatography, Biochemistry and Aqueous solution, which intersect with Toxicity.

Beate I. Escher combines topics linked to Wastewater with her work on Environmental chemistry. Her biological study deals with issues like Risk analysis, which deal with fields such as Risk assessment, Chemical pollution and In vivo tests. The Pollutant study combines topics in areas such as Environmental monitoring, Contamination and Environmental planning.
