Violeta Jakovljevic

Scientific associate
Institute of Biology and Ecology
University of Kragujevac
Serbia and Montenegro


He is working at the University of kragujevac, Serbia. The subject of his scientific research is the degradation of anionic and non-ionic components of commercial detergent "Meriks" (Henkel, Kruševac) by the action of filamentous fungi isolated from sewage and industrial wastewater, with the aim of their potential application in bioremediation. Along with biodegradation, the effect of said detergent on the activity and stability of extracellular enzymes (protease, alkaline phosphatase, amylase, invertase, nucleoside) was examined for their potential application in various fields of industry. Research has also been extended to the study of secondary metabolites of fungi and plants, in order to evaluate their antioxidant, antimicrobial and antifungal activity, as well as the cytotoxic effect.
