1. Analysis of Perfluoroalkyl Acids in Swedish Biota : Temporal trends, tissue distribution and toxicity
Sammanfattning : Perfluorinated alkyl acids (PFAS) are ubiquitous environmental contaminants. They are found in high concentrations in top predators worldwide, with perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) as the predominant compound. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Chemical species carry information in two dimensions, in their concentrations and their isotopic signatures. The concentrations of metabolites or synthetic compounds describe the composition of a chemical or biological system, while isotopic signatures describe processes in the system by their reaction pathways, regulation, and responses to external stimuli.

3. Hydrolysis and photolysis of brominated flame retardants and some traditional persistent organic pollutants : Reactivity as a tool in fate assessement of chemicals
Sammanfattning : An organic compound that remains in the environment for a long time is regarded as a persistent organic pollutant (POP). Still, persistency is not a well defined property with a firm definition. Instead it is a conceptual property of chemicals for which DDT and PCB are typical representatives. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Widespread presence of toxic and persistent pollutants in the environment, even at low concentrations, causes risks of adverse effects to human health and the ecosystem. Biological methods for treatment of water streams and removal of persistent pollutants are of great interest due to their simplicity, low cost, and mild operational conditions without harmful by-products.

Sammanfattning : The environmental occurrence and behaviour of the brominated flame retardant (BFR) decabromodiphenyl ethane (dbdpe) has only been studied to a limited extent. It is structurally similar to decabromodiphenyl ether (decaBDE), which makes it conceivable that dbdpe may also become an environmental contaminant of concern. LÄS MER
