  • Bioavailability of organic contaminants in sediments. 

    Yates, Kyari (The Robert Gordon University Department of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2008-03)
    The bioavailability of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and chlorobiphenyls (CBs) in sediments is largely dependent on the freely dissolved concentration of these pollutants. However, measuring these is challenging, ...
  • Evaluation of spot and passive sampling for monitoring, flux estimation and risk assessment of pesticides within the constraints of a typical regulatory monitoring scheme.

    Adegbotolu, Urenna V.; Njuguna, James; Pollard, Pat; Yates, Kyari (IOP Publishing., 2014)
    ADEGBOTOLU, U. V., NJUGUNA, J., POLLARD, P. and YATES, K., 2014. Waste to want: polymer nanocomposites using nanoclays extracted from oil based drilling mud waste. IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering, 64, pp. 012023.
    Due to the European Union (EU) waste frame work directive (WFD), legislations have been endorsed in EU member states such as UK for the Recycling of wastes with a vision to prevent and reduce landfilling of waste. Spent ...
