Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Organic chemistry

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Bisphenol A, Ecotoxicology and Urine. A large part of his Environmental chemistry studies is devoted to Water pollution. His work carried out in the field of Bisphenol A brings together such families of science as Ingestion and Bisphenol.

His Urine research incorporates elements of Toxicology, Metabolite, Urinary system, Biomonitoring and Physiology. Within one scientific family, Kurunthachalam Kannan focuses on topics pertaining to Phthalate under Biomonitoring, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Phthalic acid, Dibutyl phthalate and Endocrine disruptor. His Sewage treatment research includes themes of Wastewater, Effluent and Sewage.

His most cited work include:

  • Global distribution of perfluorooctane sulfonate in wildlife. (1753 citations)
  • Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances in the environment: Terminology, classification, and origins (1228 citations)
  • Peer Reviewed: Perfluorochemical Surfactants in the Environment (766 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental chemistry, Urine, Chromatography, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Contamination, Sediment, Wastewater, Dry weight and Sewage treatment. His Sediment study combines topics in areas such as Bay and Pollution.

His Sewage treatment research includes elements of Sludge, Effluent and Sewage. His Urine course of study focuses on Phthalate and Phthalic acid. Endocrinology and Pregnancy are frequently intertwined in his study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (56.08%)
  • Urine (25.87%)
  • Chromatography (15.73%)

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

  • Urine (25.87%)
  • Environmental chemistry (56.08%)
  • Physiology (12.07%)

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

His primary areas of study are Urine, Environmental chemistry, Physiology, Phthalate and Urinary system. His study focuses on the intersection of Urine and fields such as Biomonitoring with connections in the field of Environmental health, Exposure assessment and Environmental exposure. Kurunthachalam Kannan integrates many fields, such as Environmental chemistry and Human exposure, in his works.

Kurunthachalam Kannan has included themes like Perfluorooctanoic acid, Quartile, Confidence interval and Odds ratio in his Physiology study. His study in Phthalate is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pregnancy, Bisphenol, Interquartile range, Phthalic acid and Prospective cohort study. Kurunthachalam Kannan combines subjects such as Metabolite, Oxidative stress and Animal science with his study of Urinary system.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Review of Biomonitoring of Phthalate Exposures (93 citations)
  • A Review of Biomonitoring of Phthalate Exposures (93 citations)
  • Occurrence and Distribution of Organophosphate Flame Retardants/Plasticizers in Surface Waters, Tap Water, and Rainwater: Implications for Human Exposure (66 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Organic chemistry

Kurunthachalam Kannan mainly investigates Urine, Environmental chemistry, Organophosphate, Human exposure and Phosphate. His study in Urine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Paraben, Metabolite, Urinary system, Biomonitoring and Physiology. His Environmental chemistry study focuses on Microplastics in particular.

He works mostly in the field of Organophosphate, limiting it down to concerns involving Plasticizer and, occasionally, Rainwater harvesting, Seawater, Tap water and Surface water. He works mostly in the field of Sewage treatment, limiting it down to topics relating to Effluent and, in certain cases, Wastewater, as a part of the same area of interest. His Dry weight research incorporates themes from Contamination and Pollution.
