The in vitro estrogen receptor (ER) agonist potency and C1 to C9 alkyl substituted phenol content of offshore produced water effluents collected from the UK sector of the North Sea were determined using a combination of bio-analytical and chemical analysis techniques. An in vitro reporter gene assay was used to determine ER agonist potency, whilst gas… CONTINUE READING
