TLDR
Dechlorination of coplanar PCBs did not change their effects on microbial metabolic activities and community composition, and extra addition of electron donors plus sulfate or sulfate could increase dehydrogenase activity significantly, but this did not always lead to higher dechlorination rates.
Effect of coplanar PCB concentration on dechlorinating microbial communities and dechlorination in estuarine sediments.
TLDR
The effect of concentration of coplanar PCB on the dechlorinating microbial community and dechlorination were investigated in anoxic estuarine sediment collected from Er-Jen River and enriched with 3,4,4',5-tetrachlorobiphenyl, and significantly higher de chlorination rates were observed in cultures enriched with 10 mg L⁻¹.
Butyltin compounds in fishes commonly sold in Taiwan markets
Fishes commonly consumed in Taiwan were purchased from four fish markets at seasonal intervals in 2006 in order to monitor the butyltin residues, including monobutyltin (MBT), dibutyltin (DBT),
