Different endpoints have been used to investigate the occurrence of estrogenic risk along the Po River, particularly its middle section. An in vitro assay based on recombinant yeast could not detect estrogenic activity in bed sediments of the Italian river or in bile samples of five Cyprinid species, with the only exception being one carp (Cyprinus carpio)(More)
We have developed a new method for the determination of the widely used herbicide 2,6-dichlorobenzonitrile (dichlobenil) and its major metabolites 2,6-dichlorobenzamide (BAM) and 2,6-dichlorobenzoic acid (2,6-DCBA) in groundwater samples. The procedure is based on solid phase extraction (SPE) combined with a derivatization procedure before GC-MS analysis in(More)
The volatile organic carbon (VOC) and odours emitted during the aerobic biological processing of municipal solid waste (MSW) was studied in a pilot-scale reactor. VOCs were detected by different techniques on solid waste samples and the outlet air stream, before and after a biofilter. Organic compounds (alpha-pinene, beta-myrcene, D-limonene) were also(More)
Today, a significant environmental problem is due to the presence of industrial landfills, some of them old, which can release toxic compounds into the environment (Chemosphere 42 (2001) 415; Chemosphere 31 (1995) 3455). The identification of directly linked to the leachate tracers of contamination in the wells around the landfills, as early markers of a(More)
