As the carrier of various inorganics and organics from various media, micro(nano)plastics have an impact on the environment and human health. While vitamins have critical roles in the environment and microsystems from humans to plant life, the sorption of vitamins onto micro(nano)plastics are still uninvestigated. The article “Sorption of thiamin (vitamin B1) onto micro(nano)plastics: pH dependence and sorption models” corresponded by Prof. Dr. Asli BAYSAL from Chemistry Department was published in the “Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Part A” aims to study was to examine the sorption of vitamin B1 onto various micro(nano)plastics from food packages under different pHs using batch technique. The results of the study indicated that improving the sorption of vitamin B1 under various conditions and polymer types is important for the environment and food quality, and human health since both chemi- and physisorption is dominated by the polymer type and media pH.
