Seventy-seven finfish species (300 composites of three fish) were obtained from commercial vendors in six regions of the United States: Great Lakes, mid-Atlantic, New England, northwest, southeast, and southwest. Total mercury in fish muscle tissue ranged from 1 ppb (channel catfish) to 1,425 ppb (king mackerel). Of the top 10 most commonly consumed(More)
BACKGROUND Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are associated with health benefits throughout life and are obtained primarily through fish and fish oil supplements. Due to the growing popularity of dietary supplements, 47 commercial fish, krill, and algal oil supplements were analyzed for EPA, DHA, and other fatty acids. RESULTS For(More)
Fillets of 76 finfish species (293 composites of three fish) were obtained from commercial seafood vendors in six regions of the United States (i.e., Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, New England, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest). Full fatty acid profiles were determined for each species and are presented here. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic(More)
Trivalent Cp*(2)U(2,2'-bpy) (2) (Cp* = C(5)Me(5), 2,2'-bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine), which has a monoanionic bipyridine, was treated with p-tolualdehyde (a), furfuraldehyde (b), acetone (c), and benzophenone (d). Reduction of the C[double bond, length as m-dash]O bond followed by radical coupling with bipyridine forms the U(iv) derivatives(More)
Two uranium(VI) uranyl compounds, Cp*UO2((Mes)PDI(Me)) (3) and Cp*UO2((t)Bu-(Mes)PDI(Me)) (3-(t)Bu) (Cp* = 1,2,3,4,5-pentamethylcyclopentadienide; (Mes)PDI(Me) = 2,6-((Mes)N=CMe)2C5H3N; (t)Bu-(Mes)PDI(Me) = 2,6-((Mes)N=CMe)2-p-C(CH3)3C5H2N; Mes = 2,4,6-trimethylphenyl), have been synthesized by addition of N-methylmorpholine N-oxide to trianionic(More)
Reported content and process stability of phenolics in potato products is inconsistent. Changes in phenolic content of select varieties through fresh and industrial preparation/reconstitution were assessed. Total chlorogenic acids (CQAs) ranged from 43 to 953mg/100g dw and were more concentrated in pigmented compared to white/yellow-fleshed potatoes.(More)
Total mercury was measured via thermal decomposition amalgamation atomic absorption spectroscopy in the muscle tissue of 82 swordfish originating in the Pacific Ocean and was found to range from 228 to 2,090 ppb. The relationships between total mercury concentration and the size of the fish (i.e., length and weight) were analyzed. It was found that dressed(More)
