Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) analysis of four toxicological data sets is described. The toxicological data include three data sets retrieved from the literature (the toxic and metabolic effects of 23 aliphatic alcohols on the perfused rat liver; the toxicity of 21 pyridines to mice; the lethality of 55 halogenated hydrocarbons to the… (More)
This study reports a database of toxicity values for 91 compounds assessed in a novel, rapid, and economical 15 min algal toxicity test. The toxicity data were measured using the unicellular green alga Chlorella vulgaris in an assay that determined the disappearance of fluorescein diacetate. The chemicals tested covered a wide range of physicochemical… (More)
Studies on exposure of non-targets to anticoagulant rodenticides have largely focussed on predatory birds and mammals; insectivores have rarely been studied. We investigated the exposure of 120 European hedgehogs (Erinaceus europaeus) from throughout Britain to first- and second-generation anticoagulant rodenticides (FGARs and SGARs) using high performance… (More)
The use of alternative toxicity tests and computational prediction models is widely accepted to fill experimental data gaps and to prioritize chemicals for more expensive and time-consuming assessment. A novel short-term toxicity test using the alga Chlorella vulgaris was utilized in this study to produce acute aquatic toxicity data for 65 aromatic… (More)
