In the environment, nonylphenol (NP) occurs predominantly as a degradation product of nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPE). They can be found in many types of products including detergents, plastics, emulsifiers, pesticides, and industrial and consumer cleaning products. As a consequence of their use in a variety of products, they are quite common in rivers and other aquatic environments that receive sewage discharges. Because of its enhanced resistance towards biodegradation, toxicity, estrogenic… CONTINUE READING
