  1. 1. Polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins : Natural formation mechanisms and biota retention, maternal transfer, and effects

    Author : Kristina Arnoldsson; Peter Haglund; Patrik Andersson; Walter Vetter; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins; PBDDs; Baltic Sea; uptake; retention; maternal transfer; metabolism; bioavailability; natural formation; precursor; bromoperoxidase; bromophenol; photochemical transformation; oxidative coupling; hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers; Chemistry; Kemi; analytisk kemi; Analytical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PBDD) and dibenzofurans (PBDF) are a group of compounds of emerging interest as potential environmental stressors. Their structures as well as toxic responses are similar to the highly characterized toxicants polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins. READ MORE

  2. 2. Brominated natural products at different trophic levels in the Baltic Sea : Identification of polybrominated dioxins, hydroxylated and methoxylated diphenyl ethers

    Author : Anna Malmvärn; Lillemor Asplund; Åke Bergman; Bert van Bavel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins; hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers; methoxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers; Baltic Sea; algae; natural production; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : Over time, the Baltic Sea has been contaminated by increasing discharges of pollutants from human activities. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) have caused toxic effects in wildlife and excess of nutrients have led to eutrophication. READ MORE

  3. 3. Identification of brominated organic compounds in aquatic biota and exploration of bromine isotope analysis for source apportionment

    Author : Maria Unger; Örjan Gustafsson; Lillemor Asplund; Per Andersson; Sheryl Tittlemier; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins PBDDs ; NMR spectroscopy; preparative capillary gas chromatography PCGC ; stable bromine isotope ratio; GC-multiple collector- ICP-MS; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : Brominated organic compounds (BOCs) of both natural and anthropogenic origin are abundant in the environment. Most compounds are either clearly natural or clearly anthropogenic but some are of either mixed or uncertain origin. READ MORE

  4. 4. Trends and exposure of naturally produced brominated substances in Baltic biota - with focus on OH-PBDEs, MeO-PBDEs and PBDDs

    Author : Karin Löfstrand; Lillemor Asplund; Åke Bergman; Adrian Covaci; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Batlic Sea; Natural production; OH-PBDE; MeO-PBDE; PBDD; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry;

    Abstract : The semi-enclosed and brackish Baltic Sea has become heavily polluted by nutrients, anthropogenic organic and inorganic chemicals via human activities. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) have been thoroughly investigated due to their linkage to toxic effects observed in Baltic biota. There has been far less focus on semi-persistent pollutants e.

  5. 5. Exposure of zebrafish to brominated environmental chemicals : studies on reproduction, maternal transfer and early life-stage development

    Author : Anna Norman Haldén; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Fish reproduction and embryonic development may be sensitive to environmental chemicals. This thesis investigated effects of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PBDDs) on reproduction and early life-stage development in zebrafish (Danio rerio).
