New findings regarding quantities and units under the ISO and IUPAC documents. Changes in the water due to sorption processes occurring on solid phases, their prediction and use in technological processes. The importance of oxidation-reduction potential and its usefulness in assessing the aerobic, anoxic and anaerobic conditions. The importance of photochemical processes in the transformation of the chemical composition of natural waters. Nanoparticles of various solid phases affecting the chemical composition of formation waters and technological processes of purification. Buffering and neutralizing capacity of different kinds of plants and their importance in water chemistry and water technology. Various methods of preservation of water samples depends on the analyte. The new persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and drugs and substances used for personal care products (PPCP) occurring in the waters and the principles of analytical determination. The subject can be adapted to the specific research focus of the doctoral work.
