Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Ecology

Thomas A. Ternes mainly investigates Chromatography, Environmental chemistry, Sewage treatment, Effluent and Wastewater. His study in Chromatography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sludge, Antibacterial agent and Activated sludge. In the field of Environmental chemistry, his study on Water pollution overlaps with subjects such as Current.

His Sewage treatment research incorporates elements of Estrone, Sulfamethoxazole, Water treatment and Sewage. His Effluent research is included under the broader classification of Environmental engineering. His work in Wastewater covers topics such as Pulp and paper industry which are related to areas like Aeration, Nitrogen, Ammonium and Moving bed biofilm reactor.

His most cited work include:

  • Occurrence of drugs in German sewage treatment plants and rivers (2724 citations)
  • Occurrence of antibiotics in the aquatic environment. (1691 citations)
  • Water Analysis: Emerging Contaminants and Current Issues (1686 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental chemistry, Wastewater, Chromatography, Sewage treatment and Effluent. His research in Environmental chemistry is mostly focused on Water pollution. His study in Wastewater is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sorption, Water treatment, Pulp and paper industry and Groundwater.

Solid phase extraction, Mass spectrometry, High-performance liquid chromatography, Detection limit and Sample preparation are the core of his Chromatography study. His Sewage treatment research incorporates themes from Sludge, Waste treatment and Sewage. By researching both Effluent and Iopromide, he produces research that crosses academic boundaries.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (40.17%)
  • Wastewater (31.88%)
  • Chromatography (28.82%)

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

  • Environmental chemistry (40.17%)
  • Wastewater (31.88%)
  • Sewage treatment (27.07%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental chemistry, Wastewater, Sewage treatment, Effluent and Chromatography. He has researched Environmental chemistry in several fields, including Contamination, Biodegradation, Chlorine and Redox. His work deals with themes such as Extraction, Bioassay, Ecotoxicity, Genotoxicity and Biofilter, which intersect with Wastewater.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Water treatment, Nuclear chemistry, Biotransformation and Microbial population biology in addition to Sewage treatment. His Effluent study incorporates themes from Sand filter, Daphnia magna, Analyte, Lumbriculus variegatus and Pulp and paper industry. His study in the fields of Mass spectrometry, Sample preparation and Liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry under the domain of Chromatography overlaps with other disciplines such as Dienogest.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Anaerobic biodegradation of (emerging) organic contaminants in the aquatic environment. (150 citations)
  • Biodegradation of the artificial sweetener acesulfame in biological wastewater treatment and sandfilters. (76 citations)
  • Benchmarking the in Vitro Toxicity and Chemical Composition of Plastic Consumer Products (63 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Wastewater, Environmental chemistry, Sewage treatment, Effluent and Chromatography. The concepts of his Wastewater study are interwoven with issues in Drospirenone and Ecotoxicity. His Environmental chemistry research includes themes of Water Framework Directive, Toxicity and Surface water.

His Sewage treatment study combines topics in areas such as Biotechnology, Biodegradation, Antibiotic resistance and Biotransformation. Thomas A. Ternes has included themes like Bioassay, Activated sludge, Genotoxicity and Nitrification in his Effluent study. In general Chromatography study, his work on Sample preparation, Detection limit, Column chromatography and Hydrophilic interaction chromatography often relates to the realm of Canrenone, thereby connecting several areas of interest.
