Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Biochemistry

Rolf Altenburger mainly investigates Environmental chemistry, Toxicity, Ecotoxicology, Bioassay and Pollutant. His Environmental chemistry research incorporates elements of Water quality, Pesticide, Aquatic organisms and Pollution. His Pesticide research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Chlorophyta and Scenedesmus.

His research in Toxicity intersects with topics in Toxicology and Fight-or-flight response. Rolf Altenburger has included themes like Diatom and Periphyton, Algae in his Ecotoxicology study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Multiple exposure, Resource management and Environmental quality in addition to Pollutant.

His most cited work include:

  • Joint algal toxicity of 16 dissimilarly acting chemicals is predictable by the concept of independent action. (334 citations)
  • Predicting the joint algal toxicity of multi-component s-triazine mixtures at low-effect concentrations of individual toxicants. (322 citations)
  • Predictability of the toxicity of multiple chemical mixtures to Vibrio fischeri: Mixtures composed of similarly acting chemicals (320 citations)

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

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Toxicity, Ecotoxicology, Bioassay and Toxicology. Environmental monitoring is closely connected to Contamination in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Environmental chemistry. His Toxicity research includes themes of EC50, Mode of action and Zebrafish embryo.

His Ecotoxicology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pesticide and Periphyton, Pollution-induced community tolerance. The Bioassay study which covers Pollutant that intersects with Water Framework Directive. In his study, Concentration Response is inextricably linked to Aquatic toxicology, which falls within the broad field of Toxicology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (31.12%)
  • Toxicity (23.98%)
  • Ecotoxicology (20.41%)

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

  • Environmental planning (13.27%)
  • Water quality (15.31%)
  • Zebrafish embryo (6.63%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental planning, Water quality, Zebrafish embryo, Chemical mixtures and European union. His work on Water Framework Directive as part of general Water quality study is frequently linked to Context, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Zebrafish embryo study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Transcriptome, Computational biology, Toxicity and In vivo.

He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Toxicity and Methemoglobin through his works. His work deals with themes such as Chromatography and Potency, which intersect with Ecotoxicology. He combines subjects such as Bioassay and Water pollutants with his study of Pollution.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Environmental mixtures of nanomaterials and chemicals: The Trojan-horse phenomenon and its relevance for ecotoxicity. (66 citations)
  • Future water quality monitoring: improving the balance between exposure and toxicity assessments of real-world pollutant mixtures (64 citations)
  • Future water quality monitoring: improving the balance between exposure and toxicity assessments of real-world pollutant mixtures (64 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Biochemistry

Rolf Altenburger spends much of his time researching Water quality, Water Framework Directive, Environmental planning, Pollutant and Context. His study in Water Framework Directive is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Risk analysis and Environmental quality. His studies examine the connections between Risk analysis and genetics, as well as such issues in Component, with regards to Pollution.

The concepts of his Environmental planning study are interwoven with issues in Ecological assessment, Identification, Water sampling, Contamination and Environmental monitoring. His Contamination research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mixture model and Bioassay. Context combines with fields such as Chemical industry and Biochemical engineering in his investigation.
