One of the initial steps in remediating contaminated environments is to assess the human and ecological health risk associated with exposure to contaminants in a specific medium. Presented here are the results of a five-year study investigating the toxicity of simple and complex mixtures. A series of model compounds and simple mixtures including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), pentachlorophenol (PCP), and halogenated aliphatic hydrocarbons (HAHs) were analyzed. Mixture toxicity was… CONTINUE READING
