High levels of heavy metals in rice (Oryza sativa L.) from a typical E-waste recycling area in southeast China and its potential risk to human health.
The daily intake of Hg and As through rice was much lower than the tolerable daily intakes, but bioaccumulation of HG through the food chain and intake of As from other food stuff should also be of concern. Expand
Biomonitoring: an appealing tool for assessment of metal pollution in the aquatic ecosystem.
The potential applications of biomonitoring are proposed to mainly include evaluation of actual aquatic metal pollution, bioremediation, toxicology prediction and researches on toxicological mechanism. Expand
Perfluorooctanesulfonate and related fluorochemicals in human blood samples from China.
Gender-related differences were found, with males higher for PFOS and PFHxS, and females higher in PFUnDA, and there were differences in the concentration profiles (percentage composition) of various PFCs in the samples among the nine cities. Expand
Polybrominated diphenyl ether in the East Asian environment: a critical review.
The concentrations of PBDEs in atmosphere, sludge, human and biological samples of East Asia are comparable to or lower than those in Europe and North America, however, in the sediments of waters near densely populated and heavily industrialized areas, PBDE levels are among the highest ever reported in the literature.

Occurrence of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins, dibenzofurans and biphenyls pollution in sediments from the Haihe River and Dagu Drainage River in Tianjin City, China.
The congener profiles of PCDD/Fs indicated that the principal contamination source was the production of pentachlorophenol (PCP) or PCP-Na in this area, and the correlation between PC DD/Fs or PCBs and total organic matter (TOM) showed that PCDD /Fs were independent on TOM. Expand
Effects of silver nanoparticles on the development and histopathology biomarkers of Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes) using the partial-life test.
Morphological abnormalities in early-life stages of medaka showed the potential developmental toxicities of silver nanoparticles, and further research should be focused on the mechanisms of developmental toxicity in fish exposed tosilver nanoparticles. Expand
Mercury pollution in China
With a long history of mercury mining and use and a rapidly growing economy that relies heavily on coal for heat and energy, China faces an enormous challenge to reduce pollution from this toxicExpand
Determination of 4-tert-octylphenol, 4-nonylphenol and bisphenol A in surface waters from the Haihe River in Tianjin by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry with selected ion monitoring.
The estrogenic pollutants 4-tert-octylphenol, 4-nonylphenol and BPA were determined in surface water samples from the Haihe River, Tianjin, China by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) with selected ion monitoring (SIM). Expand
Spatial and vertical distribution of short chain chlorinated paraffins in soils from wastewater irrigated farmlands.
It is demonstrated that effluents from sewage treatment plants (STPs) could be a significant source of S CCPs to the ambient environment and wastewater irrigation can lead to higher accumulation of SCCPs in farm soils. Expand
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers and organochlorine pesticides in sewage sludge of wastewater treatment plants in China.
The major hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) isomer in sludge is beta-HCH, reflecting its higher affinity to solids and resistance to degradation than other isomers, and these levels are about 10-100 times lower than those found in Europe and North America. Expand
