Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Enzyme
  • Organic chemistry

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental chemistry, Wastewater, Effluent, Sewage treatment and Bioassay. The various areas that Frederic D.L. Leusch examines in his Environmental chemistry study include Activated sludge and Sewage. His Effluent research includes elements of Laccase, Contamination, Biodegradation and Aquatic organisms.

His study focuses on the intersection of Sewage treatment and fields such as Endocrine disruptor with connections in the field of Sludge, Passive sampling, Xenobiotic and Semipermeable membrane devices. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Water quality, Reclaimed water and Genotoxicity. He has researched Water quality in several fields, including Surface water, Environmental planning, Climate change, Bioanalysis and Water treatment.

His most cited work include:

  • Wastewater treatment plants as a pathway for microplastics: Development of a new approach to sample wastewater-based microplastics. (299 citations)
  • Benchmarking Organic Micropollutants in Wastewater, Recycled Water and Drinking Water with In Vitro Bioassays (260 citations)
  • Comprehensive study of endocrine disrupting compounds using grab and passive sampling at selected wastewater treatment plants in South East Queensland, Australia. (165 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Bioassay, Wastewater, Effluent and Sewage treatment. His study explores the link between Environmental chemistry and topics such as Water treatment that cross with problems in Dissolved organic carbon. Frederic D.L. Leusch studied Bioassay and Endocrine system that intersect with Zoology.

His research on Wastewater also deals with topics like

  • Environmental engineering, Bioanalysis and Extreme weather most often made with reference to Water quality,
  • Aquatic environment that connect with fields like Microplastics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Estrone, Chromatography, Membrane fouling and Laccase in addition to Effluent. His Sewage treatment study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Endocrine disruptor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (32.89%)
  • Bioassay (23.49%)
  • Wastewater (21.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Microplastics (6.04%)
  • Pollution (2.68%)
  • Fishery (3.36%)

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

Frederic D.L. Leusch focuses on Microplastics, Pollution, Fishery, Sediment and Environmental chemistry. As part of his studies on Microplastics, Frederic D.L. Leusch frequently links adjacent subjects like Aquatic environment. His Pollution study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Tursiops aduncus, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, Biomonitoring and Blubber.

Frederic D.L. Leusch has included themes like Global warming, Environmental monitoring and Bioindicator in his Fishery study. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Primary treatment, Effluent, Wastewater, Sewage treatment and Biosolids. His research in Wetland intersects with topics in Sampling and Aquatic ecosystem.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sources, presence and potential effects of contaminants of emerging concern in the marine environments of the Great Barrier Reef and Torres Strait, Australia. (25 citations)
  • Microplastic pollution in a stormwater floating treatment wetland: Detection of tyre particles in sediment. (23 citations)
  • An audit of microplastic abundance throughout three Australian wastewater treatment plants. (11 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Enzyme
  • Organic chemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Microplastics, Pollution, Sediment, Bioreactor and Laccase. His Microplastics research incorporates themes from Biosolids, Wastewater, Effluent and Sewage treatment. His Pollution research integrates issues from Environmental engineering, Surface runoff, Stormwater, Aquatic environment and Wetland.

Among his Sediment studies, there is a synthesis of other scientific areas such as Inlet, Marine debris, Environmental impact of pharmaceuticals and personal care products, Agricultural land and Environmental data. Frederic D.L. Leusch interconnects Membrane, Nanofiltration, Oxybenzone, Chromatography and Persulfate in the investigation of issues within Bioreactor.
