Many potentially hazardous organic compounds associated with synthetic-fuel production possess physicochemical properties that suggest a high potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms. Some of these compounds have been found to be metabolized by fish and other aquatic organisms. In this study, the bioconcentration of four polycyclic bases, or azaarenes, in fathead minnows was compared with predicted bioconcentration behavior estimated from octanolwater partitioning and with observed… CONTINUE READING
