The bioconcentration, biotransformation, and elimination of anionic surfactants, linear alkylbenzene sulfonates (LAS), specifically 2ØC(10) and 2ØC(12) LAS, which are pure isomers from two different homologues, have been characterized in Solea senegalensis using an experimental flow-through system with environmental exposure levels. The LAS and their(More)
A method has been developed for the determination of linear alkylbenzene sulfonates and its degradation intermediates (sulfophenylcarboxylic acids) from different marine organisms, which includes the stages of extraction and analysis by liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection. The extraction stage (Soxhlet and solid-phase extractions) was(More)
A new method has been developed for the determination of linear alkylbenzene sulfonates (LAS) from various marine organisms, and compared with Soxhlet extraction. The technique applied includes the use of pressurized liquid extraction (PLE) for the extraction stage, preconcentration of the samples, purification by solid-phase extraction (SPE) and analysis(More)
The distribution of linear alkylbenzene sulfonates (LAS) and sulfophenylcarboxylic acids (SPC) has been characterized in water and sediment of five Iberian estuaries and a saltmarsh channel. The highest concentrations of LAS and SPC were detected in shallow zones close to discharge points of untreated urban effluent, and decreased sharply with increasing(More)
Sorption experiments using different homologues of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) and sulfophenylcarboxylic acid (SPC) on several marine microalgae have been carried out. The steady state seems to be reached in the first 4 hours. Longer exposure times lead to biodegradation of the compound and, therefore, to an overestimation of the bioconcentration(More)
