Nonylphenol (NP), a well-known environmental estrogen with numerous isomers, is frequently found in surface water and sediments. Recent studies showed that NP isomers exhibited different estrogenicity. However, at present little information is available on its isomer-specific degradation in the bed sediment, which is the primary sink of NP in surface aquatic systems. In this study, we investigated the biodegradability of 19 NP isomers in two river sediments under oxic and anoxic conditions… CONTINUE READING
