1. Studies on some persistent environmental contaminants : synthesis of chlorinated [¹⁴C] biphenyls and of methyl sulphides and/or methyl sulphones derived from DDE, polychlorobiphenyls and hexachlorobenzene : studies on the in vivo transformation of certain chlorinated biphenyls and hexachlorobenzene to sulphurcontaining metabolites

2. Chemical reactivities as a mirror of environmental transformations - method development and assessment of some selected organohalogens
Sammanfattning : The assement of chemical persistence is an important part of legislative protection of the environment and human health. Of the vast number of chemicals on the market today few have been properly assessed. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER
5. Environmentally relevant chemical disruptors of oxidative phosphorylation in Baltic Sea biota : Exposure and toxic potentials
Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on toxicity and occurrence of hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (OH-PBDEs) in Baltic Sea biota. The aims were to assess OH-PBDEs potency for disruption of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and determine their and related compounds exposure in Baltic blue mussel, herring and long-tailed duck.
