AB  - Lipophilicity and ionization constant of sixteen fentanyl analogues were investigated by reversed-phase thin-layer chromatography (RP-TLC). Fourteen compounds have nitrogen containing groups at C-3 position of thepiperidine ring and two compounds are 3-carbomethoxy derivatives of fentanyl. Among them, five are diaste-reomeric cis/trans couples and six novel trans diastereomers. In addition, the lipophilicity and ionization constantof fentanyl were also determined by the same method, as a reference. The physicochemical property, lip-ophilicity, expressed as retention indices RM0 , b, and C0, as well as PC1, was determined and correlated with insilico values. Ionization constants were determined on the basis of the relationships between analyte’s retentionexpressed as RF and mobile phase pH. Calculated structural descriptors together with the retention indices, weresubjected to the principal component analysis – PCA and hierarchical cluster analysis – HCA, in order to providebasic insights into the similarities among the studied compounds. The blood – brain barrier (BBB) permeationwas investigated in the function of experimentally obtained values of lipophilicity, polar surface area and mo-lecular weight. In general, results of the present research corroborate well with previously determined anti-nociceptive activities of the investigated compounds, pointing out that besides the cis/trans isomerism, anotherset of important parameters should be taken into account when designing new derivatives of C-3 substitutedfentanyl, especially lipophilicity, voluminosity and HBD/A character of the substituents. Accordingly, RP-TLCcan be considered as a valuable asset in the ligand-based drug design

AB  - Chitosan (Ch)-derived from biowaste along with smectite, an abundant clay mineral, were used in a low-cost and eco-friendly synthesis of a new type of catalyst. Nanocomposite catalysts constituted of Co supported on smectite with chitosan-derived carbon loading were obtained using an impregnation‑carbonization procedure and denoted as Co/cCh-S-T (T stands for applied carbonization temperature). The carbonization was performed in the temperature range from 400 °C to 700 °C in the flow of N2 providing inert atmosphere. The temperature of 500 °C was found to be the most suitable for catalyst synthesis regarding catalytic performance in a peroxymonosulfate activated degradation of tartrazine. The incorporation of carbonized chitosan structure within the interlamellar space of the smectite was confirmed using X-ray powder diffraction. The high-resolution transmission electron microscopy confirmed a layered structure of nanocomposites characteristic for smectite, as well as the presence of small spherical cobalt containing nanoformations (confirmed by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy) well dispersed within structure. The existance of cobalt in the CoII and CoIII oxidation state was proven by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The Co/cCh-S-500 catalyst was proven to be stable and efficient after 5 consecutive cycles. This work showed that nanocomposite Co-catalysts, based on smectite and biowaste-derived carbon, as peroxymonosulfate activators exhibited a very promising performance in the degradation of water pollutants.

AB  - The main objectives of this research were to (i) investigate the concentration; (ii) characterize the distribution;
(iii) determine the sources apportionment; (iv) estimate environmental and health risks of heavy metals in soil
from mountain beech forest. A total of 76 soil samples from 20 pure beech forest stands from Bosnia and Her-
zegovina (BA), Bulgaria (BG), Check Republic (CZ), Germany (DE), Italy (IT), Poland (PL), Romania (RO), Serbia
(RS), Slovakia (SK), Slovenia (SL), and Spain (ES) were collected. The content of major elements was measured
by X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF). The content of heavy metals was measured by inductively coupled
plasma–optical emission spectrometry (ICP/OES). Heavy metals had a specific concentration range, which fol-
lowed in soil samples from depth 0–40 cm the common order (low to high): Hg < Cd < As < Co < Pb < Ni < Cu
< Cr < Zn, and from depth 40–80 cm: Hg < Cd < As < Pb < Co < Ni < Cu < Cr < Zn. The grouping of the
examined parameters according to rock types, soil types, and localities indicated the separation of carbonate
rocks from other substrates, luvisol, and rendzina from other soil types, and samples from BA, SL, and IT from
other localities. According to sources apportionment As, Pb and Zn are of anthropogenic origin, Cd, Co, Cr, and Ni are of geogenic origin, while the middle position of Cu and Hg indicates a combined contribution of both
sources. Elements Cd and Hg indicated severe to extremely severe enrichment with a mean value of 24.3 and
70.6, respectively. Based on the determined values Ni, Cr, As and Cd do not pose a health risk.

AB  - Raspberries are considered valuable fruits due to their high levels of nutrients and phytochemicals, which have many beneficial effects on humans. As many external factors affect the composition of these fruits (the type of cultivation, soil characteristics, ripeness, storage time and post-harvest technologies, cultivar/genotype, and climatic conditions), the goal of this study was to analyze different raspberry cultivars grown in Norway.

AB  - The oil pollutant in the Sava River aquifer in the residential area of Belgrade, Serbia was investigated in order to analyze the extent, origin and spatial distribution of the pollution, with the aim to estimate potential human health risks from exposure to the compounds detected. Analytical methods indicated that the dominant compounds in this oil pollutant were gasoline range organic compounds. Benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes (BTEX) were identified as compounds of concern and quantified by headspace gas chromatography. The concentrations of benzene measured at all sampling points were higher than the remediation value while the maximum concentrations of BTEX quantified were among the highest concentrations of these compounds reported in the petroleum-contaminated aquifers in the world. The assessment of the human health risks from exposure to BTEX-covered industrial scenario for adult receptors and residential scenario for adult receptors and children. The exposure routes analyzed were dermal contact with and ingestion of contaminated water, considering both cancer and non-cancer effects. The analysis of the lifetime incremental cancer risk indicated the potential for adverse health effects for human exposure at the investigated location, and because of that it was interpreted as an unacceptable risk level or risks of high priority which required immediate consideration for remedial measures at this location. A complete set of mitigation measures was proposed including: groundwater decontamination treatment, installation of filters for tap water, development of the system for monitoring of BTEX in the groundwater and development of the emergency response capacities at this location.

AB  - This study aimed to investigate the chemical composition of steam distillate essential oiland corresponding hydrolate obtained from S. officinalis grown in Serbia, as well as the influenceof weather conditions (temperature and precipitations) on their chemical profiles. Furthermore,their antimicrobial activity was investigated in vitro. The main compounds in essential oil were cisthujone, followed by camphor, trans-thujone, and 1,8-cineole, while hydrolate was slightly differentfrom the essential oil, with camphor, cis-thujone, and 1,8-cineole as the main compounds. Amongthe eight respiratory-associated microorganisms, Klebsiella oxytoca was the most sensitive to thetested EOs (minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC)/minimal bactericidal/fungicidal concentration(MBC/MFC) were 14.20 and 28.4 µL mL−1, respectively). MIC and MBC values of other testedbacteria ranged between 28.40 and 227.25 µL mL−1 while for Candida albicans MIC/MFC rangedfrom 28.40/56.81 to 56.81–113.63 µL mL−1. Antibiotic susceptibility patterns for the analyzed eightrespiratory-associated microorganisms showed an intermediate level of resistance to commonly usedantibiotics such as ampicillin, levofloxacin, and ciprofloxacin. As a preliminary approach to theantimicrobial profiling of the tested EO, the obtained results revealed that the tested samples possessremarkable antibacterial activities and could be used to develop pharmaceutical formulations as analternative to conventional antibiotic therapy

AB  - Adrenergic receptors are among the most studied G protein-coupled receptors. Activation or blockade of these receptors is a major therapeutic approach for the treatment of numerous disorders such as cardiac hypertrophy, congestive heart failure, hypertension, angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmias, depression, benign prostate hyperplasia, anaphylaxis, asthma, and hyperthyroidism. Among all nine cloned adrenoceptor subtypes and the subsequent development of animal models, a significant target for various neurological conditions treatment is alpha1-adrenergic receptors. 2-{[4-(2-Methoxyphenyl)piperazin-1-yl]alkyl}-1H-benzo[d]imidazoles, their 5 substituted derivatives, and structurally similar, arylpiperazine based alpha1-adrenergic receptors antagonists (trazodone, naftopidil, and urapidil) have been subjects of comparative analysis. Most of the novel compounds showed alpha1-adrenergic affinity in the range from 22 nM to 250 nM. The in silico docking and molecular dynamics simulations, binding data together with absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) calculations identified the promising lead compounds. The results brought out the conclusions which allowed us to propose a rationale for the activity of these molecules and to highlight six compounds (2-5, 8, and 12) that exhibited an acceptable pharmacokinetic profile to the advanced investigation as the potential alpha1-adrenergic receptor antagonists.

AB  - Considering that acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibition is the most important mode of action expected of a potential drug used for the treatment of symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), our previous pilot study of 4-aminoquinolines as potential human cholinesterase inhibitors was extended to twenty-two new structurally distinct 4-aminoquinolines bearing an adamantane moiety. Inhibition studies revealed that all of the compounds were very potent inhibitors of AChE and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), with inhibition constants (Ki) ranging between 0.075 and 25 µM. The tested compounds exhibited a modest selectivity between the two cholinesterases; the most selective for BChE was compound 14, which displayed a 10 times higher preference, while compound 19 was a 5.8 times more potent inhibitor of AChE. Most of the compounds were estimated to be able to cross the blood–brain barrier (BBB) by passive transport. Evaluation of druglikeness singled out fourteen compounds with possible oral route of administration. The tested compounds displayed modest but generally higher antioxidant activity than the structurally similar AD drug tacrine. Compound 19 showed the highest reducing power, comparable to those of standard antioxidants. Considering their simple structure, high inhibition of AChE and BChE, and ability to cross the BBB, 4-aminoquinoline-based adamantanes show promise as structural scaffolds for further design of novel central nervous system drugs. Among them, two compounds stand out: compound 5 as the most potent inhibitor of both cholinesterases with a Ki constant in low nano molar range and the potential to cross the BBB, and compound 8, which met all our requirements, including high cholinesterase inhibition, good oral bioavailability, and antioxidative effect. The QSAR model revealed that AChE and BChE inhibition was mainly influenced by the ring and topological descriptors MCD, Nnum, RP, and RSIpw3, which defined the shape, conformational flexibility, and surface properties of the molecules

AB  - In order to further define the potential use of FTIR-ATR spectroscopy, as a non-destructive and reliable technique, for the analysis of the characteristics of post stamps, certified originals of the Principality of Serbia stamps (“Prince Michael issues”) issued in 1866 and 1868 as well as their forgeries were ana­lyzed. Spectra enabling the comparison of the paper, dye and glue of stamps of so-called “Vienna issues”, having denominations of 10 (orange-yellow), 20 (pink) and 40 para (blue) and “Belgrade issues” (1 para-green and 2 para-reddish brown), as well as 24 expert-certified forgeries, were taken. It was shown that the applied technology was, in most of the cases, a fast and suitable technique for establishing clear differences between the spectral characteristics of the paper and dye used for the original stamps, and forgeries that were most probably made decades after the printing of the genuine stamps. The differences between print­ings of the same issues of the genuine stamps were also elaborated. It is pro­posed, for the first time in philatelic history, the possibility that “Vienna issues” stamps may have been printed on two different papers, and, having in mind the technology of printing in the 19th century, potentially, not even at the same time or in the same printing house.

AB  - The effect of Ca2+ amount and sintering temperature on mechanical properties of
geopolymer-brushite (GPB) binders was investigated. Brushite and raw abandoned kaolinite
clay thermally transformed into metakaolin were used for GPB synthesis. The complete phase
and structural analyses were performed by X-ray powder diffraction, and Fourier transforms
infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). The pore-filling effect as a consequence of Ca2+ ions
incorporation into the hybrid geopolymer networks improved the compressive strength. On
the other hand, the chosen biscuit sintering at 800 and 900o
C caused the phase
transformation of brushite into calcium pyrophosphate, which negatively affected the
compressive strength of such materials. The obtained results indicate that the usage of
relatively high sintering temperatures is not always the necessary step for producing
geopolymer-based types of cement with prominent mechanical properties.

and corresponding hydrolate obtained from S. officinalis grown in Serbia, as well as the influence
of weather conditions (temperature and precipitations) on their chemical profiles. Furthermore,
their antimicrobial activity was investigated in vitro. The main compounds in essential oil were cisthujone, followed by camphor, trans-thujone, and 1,8-cineole, while hydrolate was slightly different
from the essential oil, with camphor, cis-thujone, and 1,8-cineole as the main compounds. Among

tested EOs (minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC)/minimal bactericidal/fungicidal concentration
(MBC/MFC) were 14.20 and 28.4 µL mL−1

bacteria ranged between 28.40 and 227.25 µL mL−1 while for Candida albicans MIC/MFC ranged
from 28.40/56.81 to 56.81–113.63 µL mL−1
. Antibiotic susceptibility patterns for the analyzed eight
respiratory-associated microorganisms showed an intermediate level of resistance to commonly used
antibiotics such as ampicillin, levofloxacin, and ciprofloxacin. As a preliminary approach to the
antimicrobial profiling of the tested EO, the obtained results revealed that the tested samples possess

AB  - Schizophrenia is a widespread mental disorder that leads to significant functional impairments and premature death. The state of the art indicates gaps in the understanding and diagnosis of this disease, but also the need for personalized and precise approaches to patients through customized medical treatment and reliable monitoring of treatment response. In order to fulfill existing gaps, the establishment of a universal set of disorder biomarkers is a necessary step. Metabolomic investigations of serum samples of Serbian patients with schizophrenia (51) and healthy controls (39), based on NMR analyses associated with chemometrics, led to the identification of 26 metabolites/biomarkers for this disorder. Principal component analysis (PCA) and orthogonal partial least squares discriminant analysis (OPLS-DA) models with prediction accuracies of 0.9718 and higher were accomplished during chemometric analysis. The established biomarker set includes aspartate/aspartic acid, lysine, 2-hydroxybutyric acid, and acylglycerols, which are identified for the first time in schizophrenia serum samples by NMR experiments. The other 22 identified metabolites in the Serbian samples are in accordance with the previously established NMR-based serum biomarker sets of Brazilian and/or Chinese patient samples. Thirteen metabolites (lactate/lactic acid, threonine, leucine, isoleucine, valine, glutamine, asparagine, alanine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, choline, glucose, glycine and tyrosine) that are common for three different ethnic and geographic origins (Serbia, Brazil and China) could be a good start point for the setup of a universal NMR serum biomarker set for schizophrenia. © 2022 by the authors.

Principal component analysis (PCA) and orthogonal partial least squares discriminant analysis (OPLS-DA) models with prediction accuracies of 0.9718 and higher were accomplished during chemometric analysis. The established biomarker set includes aspartate/aspartic acid, lysine, 2-hydroxybutyric acid, and acylglycerols, which are identified for the first time in schizophrenia serum samples by NMR experiments. The other 22 identified metabolites in the Serbian samples are in accordance with the previously established NMR-based serum biomarker sets of Brazilian and/or Chinese patient samples. Thirteen metabolites (lactate/lactic acid, threonine, leucine, isoleucine, valine, glutamine, asparagine, alanine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, choline, glucose, glycine and tyrosine) that are common for three different ethnic and geographic origins (Serbia, Brazil and China) could be a good start point for the setup of a universal NMR serum biomarker set for schizophrenia. © 2022 by the authors.",

AB  - The scope of the present study was to prepare fully bio-based unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs) with comparable properties to the commercial formulations. The focus was set on the determination of the optimal prepolymer formulation using the same set of diacids (itaconic and succinic acid) and different diols (propylene glycol, isosorbide and neopentyl glycol) or its equimolar mixtures, keeping the fixed molar ratio of 1:1:2.1 in all feed compositions. Instead of commonly used styrene, bio-based dimethyl itaconate was used as a reactive diluent (RD). The rheology of the obtained resins was studied in detail. The effect of the used diol on structural (FTIR), thermal (DSC), thermomechanical (DMA), and mechanical (tensile) properties was explained. The properties of UPRs were found to be highly dependent on the diol used in the prepolymer formulation. The UPR with an equimolar ratio of propylene glycol and neopentyl glycol was shown to be the most promising candidate to compete with the commercial petroleum-based resins.

AB  - The emerging threat of bacterial resistance to antibiotics prompts the urgent search for biomaterials for the treatment of infectious disease. Here we report on the synthesis and characterization of a multiphasic nanocomposite comprising magnetic iron oxide and silver nanoparticles. The method of synthesis involved the combustion of a metalorganic complex and reduction of the silver ions that were exchanged and/or adsorbed on the surface of iron oxide. Different physical and chemical treatments coupled to the reduction process, including ultrasound and Lugol's iodine solution, respectively, homogenized the distribution of the silver nanoparticles on the iron oxide phase. Remarkably, using ascorbic acid as a reductant enhanced the magnetic properties of the material as a result of the reduction of the magnetic matrix alongside the silver cations. The treatment with ultrasound detached large amounts of silver from the iron oxide phase and resulted in the lowest amount of silver incorporated in the nanocomposite. Despite that, this treatment led to the highest antibacterial activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative strains, indicating that the homogeneity of the distribution of silver on the iron oxide matrix is a more important determinant of the antibacterial performance than the amount of silver incorporated in the material. At the same time, the treatment with Lugol's iodine equally increased the distribution homogeneity, but induced excessive ion exchange and crystal lattice substitutions, thereby adversely affecting the antibacterial performance. This has indicated that the mode of binding silver to iron oxide can compensate for the positive effects of homogeneous distribution with respect to the antibacterial performance.

AB  - Production of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is a trending topic due to their prebiotic effect becoming increasingly important for the modern human diet. The most suitable process for FOS production is the one using fungal inulinases. Introduction of new fungal inulinase producers and their implementation in production of inulinase enzymes is therefore gaining interest. This study provides a new approach to FOS synthesis by fungal enzyme complex without prior separation of any specific enzyme. Inulinase enzyme complexes could be used for the synthesis of FOS in two possible ways – hydrolysis of inulin (FOSh) and transfructosylation process of sucrose (FOSs), as demonstrated here. Depending on the fungal growth inducing substrate, a variety of inulinase enzyme complexes was obtained – one of which was most successful in production of FOSh and another one of FOSs. Substrates derived from crops: triticale, wheat bran, Jerusalem artichoke and Aspergillus welwitschiae isolate, previously proven as safe for use in food, were utilized for production of inulinase enzyme cocktails. The highest FOSs production was obtained by enzyme complex rich in β-fructofuranosidase, while the highest FOSh production was obtained by enzyme complex rich in endoinulinase. Both FOSh and FOSs showed antioxidant potential according to ABTS and ORAC, which classifies them as a suitable additive in functional food. Simultaneous zymographic detection of inulinase enzymes, which could contribute to expansion of the knowledge on fungal enzymes, was developed and applied here. It demonstrated the presence of different inulinase isoforms depending on fungal growth substrate. These findings, which rely on the innate ability of fungi to co-produce all inulinases from a cocktail, could be useful as a new, easy approach to FOS production by fungal enzymes without their separation and purification, contributing to cheaper and faster production processes.

AB  - In this article, cytotoxicity, the mechanisms of cytotoxic activity, genotoxicity, and interaction with DNA and proteins, of two Cu(II) complexes with a salicylaldehyde derivative (4-(diethylamino)salicylaldehyde) and α-diimine (2,2′-bipyridine (bipy) and 1,10-phenanthroline (phen)) are reported. Both Cu(II) complexes performed cytotoxic effects against all tested malignant cell lines. Complexes exerted highest cytotoxicity against HeLa and A375 malignant cell lines. The cytotoxic activity of Cu(II) complex with phen as a α-diimine co-ligand was significantly higher in comparison with cytotoxic activity of Cu(II) complex with bipy. Pretreatment with specific inhibitors of caspase-3, caspase-8 or caspase-9, in order to clear up the mode of cell death triggered by two Cu(II) complexes in HeLa cells, indicated the ability of these complexes to induce apoptosis through activation of target caspases. Cu(II)-phen complex exhibited significant antioxidant activity compared with Cu(II)-bipy complex, and showed a better effect on reducing intracellular ROS levels in HeLa cells. Tested complexes did not display genotoxic potential in human peripheral blood leucocytes, but exhibited an antigenotoxic effect in post-treatment, after H2O2 exposure. The study of the in vitro biological properties regarding their affinity towards CT (calf-thymus) DNA and serum albumins showed that the compounds can intercalate to CT DNA, and bind reversibly and tightly to the albumins. Molecular docking studies of the ability of compounds to bind to biomacromolecules are consistent with in vitro studies.

Cu(II)-phen complex exhibited significant antioxidant activity compared with Cu(II)-bipy complex, and showed a better effect on reducing intracellular ROS levels in HeLa cells. Tested complexes did not display genotoxic potential in human peripheral blood leucocytes, but exhibited an antigenotoxic effect in post-treatment, after H2O2 exposure. The study of the in vitro biological properties regarding their affinity towards CT (calf-thymus) DNA and serum albumins showed that the compounds can intercalate to CT DNA, and bind reversibly and tightly to the albumins. Molecular docking studies of the ability of compounds to bind to biomacromolecules are consistent with in vitro studies.",

AB  - Climate variables including temperature, rainfall intensity, rainfall acidity, and lithological properties are among the most important factors affecting rock weathering. However, the relative contribution of these four factors on rock weathering, especially on chemical weathering, is still unclear. In this study, we carried out a series of weathering-leaching rainfall simulations on four types of badland sediments under controlled conditions of two levels of temperature, rainfall intensity, and rainfall acidity based on the real field data from representative weather scenarios. The main objectives are 1) to explore the progressive change of sample surface and leachate characteristics and 2) to reveal the independent effects of temperature, rainfall intensity, rainfall acidity, and lithology and their relative contribution as well, on both mechanical and chemical weathering. Qualitative analysis on crack development and fragmentation of sample surface and quantitative analysis on the leachate volume, pH, electrical conductivity, and total cation and anion releases of sample leachate together demonstrated that for the investigated sediments, under the conditions of temperature, intensity, and acidity of rain that can be achieved in nature, high drying temperature obviously increases mechanical disintegration by promoting the rate and magnitude of moisture variations (wetting–drying alterations), while high rainfall intensity and acid rain have no obvious effect. Impact and importance of the drying process caused by high temperature between wetting events need more attention, rather than high rainfall intensity. Low temperature, high rainfall intensity, and acid rain contributing more hydrogen ions required for cation exchanges, rock type with more soluble minerals, all promote chemical weathering, and the influence of climatic and lithological factors on chemical weathering decreases in the following order: mineral composition> rainfall intensity > temperature > rainfall acidity. Climatic variations on temperature can modify weathering processes and in that way conditioned hydro-geomorphological processes in badland areas. Such changes should be considered for direct and indirect implications on badland dynamics.

AB  - In this study, we have analysed the influence of cation–π interactions on stability and properties of superoxide dismutase (SOD) active centres. The number of interactions formed by arginine is higher than by lysine in the cat­ionic group, while those formed by histidine are comparatively higher in the π group. The energy contribution resulting from most frequent cation–π interact­ions was in the lower range of strong hydrogen bonds. The cation–π interact­ions involving transition metal ions as cation have energy more negative than –418.4 kJ mol-1. The stabilization centres for these proteins showed that all the residues involved in cation–π interactions were important in locating one or more of such centres. The majority of the residues involved in cation–p inter­actions were evolutionarily conserved and might have a significant contribution towards the stability of SOD proteins. The results presented in this work can be very useful for understanding the contribution of cation–π interactions to the stability of SOD active centres.

In all three complexes, a ligand (L1) is coordinated in a deprotonated formally neutral zwitterionic form via NNO donor set atoms. Cu(II) and Zn(II) form mononuclear penta-coordinated complexes [CuL1(N3)(CH3OH)]BF4 and [ZnL1(N3)2], respectively, while Mn(II) forms a binuclear [Mn2L12(μ-1,1-N3)2(N3)2]·2CH3OH complex, with unusual distorted trigonal-prismatic geometry around the metal centers. The antimicrobial activity of these complexes was tested against a panel of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, two yeasts and one fungal strain. The binuclear Mn(II) complex showed antifungal activity of similar intensity to amphotericin B. Based on the results of the brine shrimp test and DPPH radical scavenging activity, the most active Cu(II) and Mn(II) complexes were selected for evaluation of cytotoxic activity against five malignant cancer cell lines (HeLa, A375, MCF7, PC-3 and A549) and one normal cell line HaCaT. Both complexes showed significant activity. It should be pointed out that the activity of the Mn(II) complex against the MCF7 breast cancer cell line is only slightly weaker than that of cisplatin, but with selectivity to the tumor cell line in comparison to normal HaCaT cells, which is non-existent in the case of cisplatin.

AB  - This study presents a detailed characterization of 27 honey samples from the Tara Mountain region in Serbia using different comprehensive techniques and methods. The types of the honey samples were defined as monofloral (4 samples), honeydew (5 samples) and polyfloral (18 samples) honey based on determined polyphenol content, antioxidant activity, electrical conductivity and melissopalynological analyses. Physicochemical parameters such as pH (4.13–4.94), diastase activity (24.20–41.70 DN), acidity (14.60–29.70 meq/kg), content of 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (in range below 5, up to 16.90 mg/kg), sucrose (0.20–3.90 g/100 g), and moisture content (15.01–19.23%) confirmed the required quality of the honey samples. Sensory analysis revealed honey characteristics favorable to consumers. Analyses of 19 phenolic compounds using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography with a diode-array detection and triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (UHPLC-DAD-MS/MS) revealed six phenolic acids and 13 other compounds from the group of flavonoids and their glycosides. In all the samples the highest content was determined for p-coumaric acid, followed by caffeic acid and pinocembrin. Besides total phenolic content and radical scavenging activity, antimicrobial activity was also examined. Most honey samples showed bactericidal activity against Staphylococcus aureus and bacteriostatic activity against Escherichia coli, while none of the honey samples inhibited the growth of Candida albicans. Chemometric analyses were applied for an in-depth study of the results to further evaluate the characteristics of the honey samples studied. Principal component analysis (PCA) was used for assessing the differences in physicochemical parameters, polyphenols content and antioxidant capacity between honey samples. The unrooted cluster tree was used to group the samples based on the melissopalynological analyses.

AB  - Increasing pollutant levels in surface water are a very important problem in developing countries. In Serbia, the largest rivers are transboundary rivers that cross the border already polluted. Taking this into account, evaluation of the distribution characteristics, ecological risk, and sources of toxic elements in river water and surface sediments in the watercourses of the Vlasina watershed is of great significance for the protection of water resources in Serbia. A total of 17 sediment and 18 water samples were collected and analyzed by Inductively Coupled Plasma—Optical Emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) and Inductively Coupled Plasma—Mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to determine micro- and macroelements contents. The geo-accumulation index (Igeo) was applied to determine and classify the magnitude of toxic element pollution in this river sediment. The contents of the studied toxic elements were below water and sediment quality guidelines. For studied river water, results of principal component analysis (PCA) indicated the difference in behavior of Cr, Mn, Ni, Cu, and As and V, respectively. Cluster analysis (CA) classified water samples according to As and Cu content. The PCA results revealed that lead in river sediments had different behavior than other elements and can be associated mainly with anthropogenic sources. According to the degree of Igeo, the majority of sediments in the Vlasina region were uncontaminated regarding studied toxic elements. The origin of elements is mostly from natural processes such as soil and rock weathering.
