Studies on styrene concentration in drinking water and hot beverages in some settings

Water bottles and cups composed of polystyrene also contain non-polymerized styrene. Styrene’s toxicological profile is associated with several health issues for humans. Mainly, the central and

Determination of parathion, aldicarb, and thiobencarb in tap water and bottled mineral water in Mashhad, Iran

Water is a necessity for life. Currently, because of different contaminations in tap water, most people prefer using bottled mineral waters. Pesticides (e.g., organophophorous, carbamates, etc.) are

Leachate From Expanded Polystyrene Cups Is Toxic to Aquatic Invertebrates (Ceriodaphnia dubia)

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) products and their associated chemicals (e.g., styrenes) are widespread in the marine environment. As a consequence, bans on their use for single-use packaging materials

Assessment of metal contaminations leaching out from recycling plastic bottles upon treatments

The results revealed that heating and microwaving enhance antimony leaching significantly in PET plastic bottles, and manufacturers should consider the contaminations during manufacturing process and washing bottles before first use was strongly recommended to remove those contaminants.

Quality comparison of tap water vs. bottled water in the industrial city of Yanbu (Saudi Arabia)

Drinking water distributed in the city is of very good and persistent quality, comparable with bottled water, and continuous monitoring also guarantees the safe drinking water to the community.

Migration levels of monostyrene in most vulnerable foods handled and stored in polystyrene containers and their impact on the daily intake

The migration of residual styrene from polystyrene (PS) packages to foods has been a major concern in recent years worldwide. The level of styrene migration from polystyrene cups was measured in

Comparison of residual styrene monomer determination of pharmaceutical materials packed with polystyrene using gas chromatography and ultraviolet/visible spectrophotometer

Background: Plastics such as plastic wrapping are an integral part of today’s society. Plastics are made by polymerization of styrene monomers. If the polymerization reaction is not perfect, then

OPTIMIZATION OF ANTIMONY LEACHING FROM FOOD PACKAGING COVERS MADE OF LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE USING RESPONSE SURFACE METHODOLOGY

Heavy metal contamination in the environment, especially in packaged food and drinking water, are always of great concern due to their health impact. The use of heavy metal as catalysts during

Blood level studies with rats illustrated uptake phenomena that were dependent on the dose and route of administration and were also affected by the vehicle used to convey the styrene monomer.

Styrene production, use, and human exposure.

The highest potential human exposures to styrene occur in occupational settings, particularly those involving the production of large glass-reinforced polyester products such as boats, which require manual lay-up and spray-up operations.
