Abstract:Dechlorane Plus (DP), a highly chlorinated flame retardant, has been detected in water, sediment, and aquatic organisms in a reservoir in the vicinity of electronic waste recycling workshops in South China. The biomagnification potential of DP in the food web was assessed and compared with that of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). DP was detected in all of the aquatic species, with concentrations of 19.1-9630 ng/g lipid wt. A depletion of anti-DP was observed in organ… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
