  1. 1. Role of ecological processes in determining effects of contaminants in aquatic ecosystems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Anna-Lea Golz; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ecosystem approach; ionizing radiation; HBCDD; microcosm; species interactions; indirect effects; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Aquatic ecosystems cover approximately 70% of the Earth’s surface and support a wide range of ecosystem services. Despite their importance, aquatic ecosystems are increasingly exposed to anthropogenic stressors, such as contaminants and climate change impacts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Occurrence and fate of emerging and legacy flame retardants from indoor environments to remote areas

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Seth Newton; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Flame retardant; emerging; legacy; polybrominated diphenyl ethers; PBDE; HBCDD; long range transport; dust; air; soil; atmospheric deposition; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are toxic chemicals that can be found in various matrices in all corners of the planet, including remote areas such as the Arctic.  Several POPs are known and monitored but given the abundance of new chemicals in commerce about which little is known, chemicals that may be new POPs are constantly being screened for.

  3. 3. Legacy persistent organic pollutants and chemicals of emerging concern in Sweden from indoor environments to remote areas

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Seth Newton; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; persistent organic pollutants; atmospheric deposition; arctic; flame retardant; POP; long range transport; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : Bulk atmospheric deposition samples were taken every two months for a year in 2009-2010 at two sites in northern Sweden and analyzed for a suite of legacy and emerging persistent organic chemicals including legacy organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)  and novel flame retardants (NFRs).  To further investigate the urban occurrence and contribution to remote contamination of flame retardants, indoor air, ventilation system air, and dust were sampled in several microenvironments in Stockholm during the winter of 2012 for analysis of PBDEs, isomer-specific hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD), and NFRs.

  4. 4. Packed Column Supercritical Fluid Chromatography Applications in Environmental Chemistry

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Nicole Riddell; Örebro universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Supercritical Fluid Chromatography; Mass Spectrometry; Ionization; POPs; APPI; APCI; chiral; achiral; packed column;

    Abstract : Although gas and liquid chromatography have emerged as dominant separation techniques in environmental analytical chemistry, these methods do not allow for the concurrent analysis of chemically diverse groups of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). There are also a small number of compounds which are not easily amenable to either of these traditional separation techniques. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human exposure to persistent organic pollutants Illustrated by four case studies in Europe

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för miljökemi

    Author : Jana Weiss; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Human exposure; Persistent organic pollutants POPs ; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi;

    Abstract : An extensive use of chemicals in countless consumer products has resulted in human exposure to several persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Sufficient knowledge about their chemical composition properties and environmental faith is required, to be able to proper risk assess and regulate the substances. READ MORE
