Association of urinary bisphenol A concentration with medical disorders and laboratory abnormalities in adults.
CONTEXT Bisphenol A (BPA) is widely used in epoxy resins lining food and beverage containers. Evidence of effects in animals has generated concern over low-level chronic exposures in humans. Expand
Diamonds in the rough: identification of individual naphthenic acids in oil sands process water.
Expansion of the oil sands industry of Canada has seen a concomitant increase in the amount of process water produced and stored in large lagoons known as tailings ponds. Concerns have been raised,Expand
Occurrence of the marine antifouling agent Irgarol 1051 within the Plymouth Sound locality: implications for the green macroalga Enteromorpha intestinalis
Abstract Water samples taken from the Plymouth Sound locality were analysed for the presence of the s-triazine herbicide Irgarol 1051, which is an ingredient of antifouling paints used on pleasureExpand
Profiling oil sands mixtures from industrial developments and natural groundwaters for source identification.
The objective of this study was to identify chemical components that could distinguish chemical mixtures in oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) that had potentially migrated to groundwater in theExpand
Steroidal aromatic 'naphthenic acids' in oil sands process-affected water: structural comparisons with environmental estrogens.
The large volumes, acute toxicity, estrogenicity, and antiandrogenicity of process-affected waters accruing in tailings ponds from the operations of the Alberta oil sands industries pose aExpand
Toxicity of individual naphthenic acids to Vibrio fischeri.
Numerous studies have suggested that the toxicity of organic compounds containing at least one carboxylic acid group and broadly classified as "naphthenic acids", is of environmental concern. ForExpand
Aromatic naphthenic acids in oil sands process-affected water, resolved by GCxGC-MS, only weakly induce the gene for vitellogenin production in zebrafish (Danio rerio) larvae.
Process waters from oil sands industries (OSPW) have been reported to exhibit estrogenic effects. Although the compounds responsible are unknown, some aromatic naphthenic acids (NA) have beenExpand
Occurrence of the antifouling herbicide Irgarol 1051 within coastal-water seagrasses from Queensland Australia
Abstract The s-triazine herbicide Irgarol 1051 is now widely distributed throughout European coastal waters. In Australia, the compound is not registered for use as a biocide in antifouling paints.Expand
Acute toxicity of aromatic and non-aromatic fractions of naphthenic acids extracted from oil sands process-affected water to larval zebrafish.
The toxicity of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) has regularly been attributed to naphthenic acids, which exist in complex mixtures. If on remediation treatment (e.g., ozonation) or onExpand
Predicted toxicity of naphthenic acids present in oil sands process-affected waters to a range of environmental and human endpoints.
Naphthenic acids (NAs) are considered to be a major toxic component of oil sands process-affected waters (OSPW) and are also widely used for industrial processes. The effects of previously identifiedExpand
