Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology
  • Waste management

Roland Weber mostly deals with Waste management, Pollutant, Environmental chemistry, Persistent organic pollutant and Pollution. His study in the field of Waste recycling and Flammable liquid also crosses realms of Extended time, Food resources and Reproductive toxicity. His Pollutant research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Lindane, Contamination, Food chain, Water supply and Hexachlorocyclohexane.

The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Combustion, Incineration, Halogenation and Thermal decomposition. His study looks at the relationship between Persistent organic pollutant and topics such as Fly ash, which overlap with Fluidized bed, Chlorophenol, Flue gas and Fluidized bed combustion. Roland Weber has included themes like Environmental monitoring and Environmental planning in his Pollution study.

His most cited work include:

  • Halogenated Flame Retardants: Do the Fire Safety Benefits Justify the Risks? (298 citations)
  • Dioxin- and POP-contaminated sites—contemporary and future relevance and challenges (298 citations)
  • Relevance of BFRs and thermal conditions on the formation pathways of brominated and brominated–chlorinated dibenzodioxins and dibenzofurans (279 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental chemistry, Waste management, Pollutant, Contamination and Environmental protection. His Environmental chemistry study which covers Pesticide that intersects with Ecotoxicology. His Waste management study incorporates themes from Heavy metals, Persistent organic pollutant and Pollution.

His Pollution study combines topics in areas such as Environmental engineering and Environmental remediation. Pollutant is closely attributed to Lindane in his study. As part of one scientific family, Roland Weber deals mainly with the area of Environmental protection, narrowing it down to issues related to the Hazardous waste, and often Environmental planning.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (32.84%)
  • Waste management (28.36%)
  • Pollutant (19.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (32.84%)
  • Pollution (15.67%)
  • Waste management (28.36%)

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

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Pollution, Waste management, Contamination and Ecotoxicology. In the subject of general Environmental chemistry, his work in Bioindicator is often linked to Exposure assessment, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Pollution research integrates issues from Firefighting, Environmental protection, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, Chlorinated paraffins and Environmental remediation.

His study in Waste management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sustainable management and Heavy metals. His Contamination research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Water pollution, Pollutant and Chrysene. His study focuses on the intersection of Ecotoxicology and fields such as Environmental planning with connections in the field of Environmental monitoring.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Marine litter plastics and microplastics and their toxic chemicals components: the need for urgent preventive measures (160 citations)
  • The Florence Statement on Triclosan and Triclocarban. (76 citations)
  • Reviewing the relevance of dioxin and PCB sources for food from animal origin and the need for their inventory, control and management (55 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology
  • Pollution

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental protection, Contamination, Waste management, Pollution and Hazardous waste. Roland Weber combines subjects such as Microplastics and Cosmetics with his study of Environmental protection. His Contamination study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecotoxicology and Chlorinated paraffins.

His research integrates issues of Bioaugmentation and Heavy metals in his study of Waste management. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental chemistry, Contaminated land, China and Lindane. His Basel Convention study in the realm of Hazardous waste interacts with subjects such as Marine debris.
