  1. 1. Toxicologically important DDT metabolites : Synthesis, enantioselective analysis and kinetics

    Author : Tatiana Cantillana; Åke Bergman; Peter Sundin; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; o; p -DDD; 3-Methylsulfonyl-DDE; adrenocorticolytic compounds; chiral; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : DDT was extensively and globally used as a pesticide in agriculture and for malaria vector control from the 1940’s until the 1970’s. Due to its heavy use, DDT became ubiquitously distributed throughout the environment. DDT and several DDT metabolites are persistent organic pollutants. READ MORE

  2. 2. Synthesis of highly brominated diphenyl ethers and aspects on photolysis and indoor spreading

    Author : Anna Christiansson; Åke Bergman; Eva Jakobsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : Adding chemicals to materials to decrease flammability can be dated back to as early as 450 BC when the Egyptians used alum to reduce flammability of wood. Almost 2500 years later brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are used to prevent ignition of textiles, electronics and polymers. READ MORE

  3. 3. New approaches for synthesis and analysis of adducts to N-terminal valine in hemoglobin from isocyanates, aldehydes, methyl vinyl ketone and diepoxybutane

    Author : Ronnie Davies; Margareta Törnqvist; Leif Kronberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbamoylation; modified-Edman procedure; 5- hydroxymethyl furfural; MISPE; biomarkers; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : Human exposure to harmful compounds in the environment, from intake via food, occupational exposures or other sources, could have health implications. Exposure to reactive compounds/metabolites can be identified and quantified as hemoglobin (Hb) adducts by mass spectrometry. READ MORE

  4. 4. Temporal and spatial trends of organohalogens in guillemot (Uria aalge) from North Western Europe

    Author : Hrönn Jörundsdóttir; Åke Bergman; Derek Muir; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arctic; environmental; monitoring; pollution; time trends; spatial trends; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : The Arctic and sub-Arctic region of the North Atlantic is a remote area, also in relations to environmental contaminants, such as POPs, BFRs and last but not least, PFCs. Both the BFRs and PFCs are considered emerging pollutants of significant environmental concern. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
