Water samples were collected in spring, summer, and winter from English rivers in urban/industrial (River Aire and River Calder, Yorkshire, UK) and rural environments (River Thames, Oxfordshire, UK) to study the biodegradation potential of the key steroid estrogen 17beta-estradiol (E2) and its synthetic derivate ethinylestradiol (EE2). Microorganisms in the(More)
A bacterial bioassay, suitable for rapid screening to assess the relative toxicity of xenobiotic contaminated groundwater has been developed. The quantitative bioassay utilizes a decline in luminescence of the lux marked soil bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens on exposure to contaminated groundwaters from which effective concentration (EC) values can be(More)
The determination of octanol-water partition coefficients (log K(ow)) is important for the prediction of the fate of organic pollutants in the environment. Traditionally, log K(ow) values are determined by shake-flask, estimated by, e.g., HPLC retention data, or calculated, e.g., from ClogP. In this paper, an alternative approach is reported that allows log(More)
