To estimate the persistence of xenobiotic in the environment, a new ultimate mineralization approach for assessing ready biodegradability in seawater has been developed, based on the OECD 301 B guideline for freshwater. a few changes in the currently accepted procedure have been made to adapt the test to seawater. The assays, realized with seawater as test… CONTINUE READING
