The increase in synthetic plastic production and the poor management of plastic waste have led to an increase in discharge into our aqueous environment. In this paper we aim to test optoelectronic methods (fluorescence spectroscopy, enhanced darkfield hyperspectral microscopy, spectrophotometry and dynamic light scattering) for the characterization of plastic polymers (polypropylene PP) in surface waters (Carol Lake, Ciorogarla River) and their influence on organic matter. The results obtained showed that these methods could be used for a general assessment of the impact of plastic polymers on aquatic components, being more suitable for samples that have been previously contaminated with microplastics..
