Following a ban on the use of tributyltin in antifouling products on small boats, a number of organic booster biocides have been utilised in conjunction with copper in antifouling paints as alternative treatments. The fate of organic compounds in the aquatic environment is closely linked to their partitioning between aqueous media and sediment. In this study, experiments were designed to investigate the partitioning and sorptive behaviour of Irgarol 1051, chlorothalonil, dichlofluanid and… CONTINUE READING
