Pentachlorophenol (PCP) has been reported toxic to aquatic organisms, and it frequently occurs at relatively high concentrations in most Chinese waters due to the re-emergence of schistosomiasis since 2003. Several studies about Water Quality Criteria (WQC) for PCP had been performed to protect the aquatic ecosystem, but in most of these studies the(More)
Acute toxicity and feeding rate inhibition of effluent from a wastewater treatment plant and its adjacent stream water on Daphnia magna and Moina macrocopa were comparatively studied. The acute toxicity of the final effluent (FE) fluctuated greatly over the sampling period from January to August 2009. Toxicity identification results of the FE in July 2009(More)
Arsenic (As) is a common trace element whose oxidation states mainly include four types (-3, 0, +3, and +5), and inorganic As(III) and As(V) are regarded as the most commonly existing forms in aqueous environments. Generally, As(III) has a higher toxicity than As(V) due to the different mechanisms in arsenic toxicity. However, there are few studies about(More)
Cloud water samples were collected during March to May 2009 at Mount Heng (27°18′N, 112°42′E, 1269 m A.S.L.), a high altitude site in southern China. The samples were analyzed by GS-MS to investigate the distribution, transport pattern, scavenging ratios and possible sources of PAHs. During the observation campaign, the concentration of total (in both(More)
The protection of aquatic plants has received less attention in ecological risk assessment of pollutants compared with animals. Some pollutants like herbicide, however, are more toxic to aquatic plants than to animals. Aquatic toxicity data of 126 priority pollutants were screened and analyzed in this study. Through data analysis, five priority pollutants(More)
Boosting the low catalytic activity of bacteriogenic Ag/AgCl nanoparticles (NPs) by adding Co2+ in a model reaction, i.e. p-nitrophenol (PNP) reduction, was observed. Under optimal conditions, Co-Ag/AgCl NPs show an apparent rate constant (kapp) of 0.0837 s-1 upon PNP reduction. Considering the trace amount of Co-Ag/AgCl NPs used in catalysis (about 1.2(More)
Benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) is a priority Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH), which is toxic to aquatic organisms and has been widely detected in the environment. However, ecological risk assessment for BaP is hard to perform because of the absence of water quality criteria (WQC) and lack of toxicity data for this chemical. To fill in the data gaps, a(More)
Species sensitivity distribution (SSD) method has been widely used to derive water quality criteria (WQC). However, the toxicity data of some environmental pollutants are not easily accessible, especially for endangered and threatened species. Thus, it would be very desirable and economical to predict the toxicity of those species not subjected to toxicity(More)
Triphenyltin (TPT) often coexists with tributyltin (TBT) and Cu in coastal waters worldwide. The combined toxic effect of TPT and TBT has always been assumed to be additive without any scientific proof, and the combined effect of Cu and TPT on marine organisms has not been vigorously studied. This study, therefore, investigated the acute toxicity of binary(More)
