At present, there are no known direct occurrences of nonylphenol (NP) in nature. Therefore, its presence in nature is solely a consequence of human activities. NP is generated through degradation of alkylphenol ethoxylates released mainly from textile, metal working, institutional cleansing and laundry cleaning, but few data on the amount of the release is available. These compounds have been shown to affect several biological processes, including the endocrine systems, in a wide number of… CONTINUE READING
