Evaluation of sediment contamination by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the Gironde estuary
Abstract Surface sediments, collected in the Gironde estuary during February and October 1993, were analysed for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The aromatic fractions were separated byExpand
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in sediments and mussels of the western Mediterranean sea
The distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) has been investigated in superficial sediments and mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) of the western Mediterranean sea (French Riviera,Expand
Origin and Bioavailability of PAHs in the Mediterranean Sea from Mussel and Sediment Records
The distribution of selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in surface sediments and in mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) of the western Mediterranean Sea (French, Spanish and BalearicExpand
Concentrations of PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) in various marine organisms in relation to those in sediments and to trophic level
The PAH concentrations determined in the organisms were significantly negatively correlated with logKow values, but to different extents according to the species, explained by the greater exposure of the organisms to the lower molecular weight compounds. Expand
Multi-residue analysis of pharmaceutical compounds in aqueous samples.
The development of an extraction procedure which enables the measurement of a wide spectrum of pharmaceuticals at trace levels with quite simple equipment and results obtained have demonstrated the suitability of the method for multi-residue analysis of different types of water matrices. Expand
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), nitrated PAHs and oxygenated PAHs in ambient air of the Marseilles area (South of France): concentrations and sources.
The study of NPAH and OPAH sources suggested that gasoline engines were an important source of such compounds and the dominant source of 1-nitropyrene, 2-nitrofluorene, 6-Nitrochrysene and benz[a]anthracene-7,12-dione seems to be diesel vehicles. Expand
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in recent sediments and mussels (Mytilus edulis) from the Western Baltic Sea: occurrence, bioavailability and seasonal variations
Abstract Surface sediments and mussels, Mytilus edulis , collected in the Baltic Sea in March 1995, October 1995 and August 1996 have been analysed for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) content.Expand
Consequences of treated water recycling as regards pharmaceuticals and drugs in surface and ground waters of a medium-sized Mediterranean catchment.
Pharmaceuticals and other wastewater-related contaminants are present in several reservoirs tapped for drinking water, confirming wastewater contamination; paracetamol, caffeine, and diclofenac are the most frequently detected. Expand
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) burden of mussels (Mytilus sp.) in different marine environments in relation with sediment PAH contamination, and bioavailability
Abstract Sediments and mussels (Mytilus edulis, Mytilus galloprovincialis) were sampled in different European coastal environments (Germany, France, Spain) and analysed for their polycyclic aromaticExpand
Determination of steroidal hormone profiles along the Jalle d'Eysines River (near Bordeaux, France).
It is likely that biodegradation plays a major role in the removal of steroids from the river and the different decay rates are probably related to differences in bacterial activity within the river. Expand
