One of the increasing pollution loads along with the fast consuming growth in the world is microplastics which are left into the environment. 80 % of microplastic pollution in the sea moves from earth to seas. Microplastics spread toxin to water and keep hazardous contaminating chemicals on their surfaces. As a result of the ingestion of microplastics they undergo bio accumulation in the tissues and organs of organisms and they can be transfered along the food chain in the sea. In this study…

Quantitation of persistent organic pollutants adsorbed on plastic debris from the Northern Pacific Gyre's "eastern garbage patch".

Floating marine plastic debris was found to function as solid-phase extraction media, adsorbing and concentrating pollutants out of the water column and the types of PCBs and PAHs found were similar to those found in marine sediments.
