Abstract The aim of the investigation was to elucidate the extent and directions of possible alterations in the process of biosynthesis of surface lipid (SL) molecules in the presence of some toxicants and realize if some SL molecules could be stress markers. The emphasis is made on some water plants, representatives of helophytes. Some plants (contaminant exposed) grown on sewage ponds of Dniepropetrovs'k varnish-dye plant with complex contamination were investigated. Spectral (Fourier transform infrared, FTIR), thermogravimetric (TG) and gas chromatography - mass spectrometry (GC-MS) data were considered. FTIR-spectra of SL of contaminant non-exposed and contaminant exposed plant samples had some differences concerning absorbtion of some characteristic bands; TG and evolutional profiles of water, also carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide evolution had some differences in control and contaminant exposed plants. The results confirm their different molecular-dynamic characteristics, dependent from content and associative abilities. Changes in composition of SL took place under influence of contaminants. The content of fatty acids and hydrocarbons changed in SL of contaminant exposed plants in comparison with control.
