Dietary intake is the main route of exposure to halogenated flame retardants for a studied Norwegian group. That is one result from a research project that Joo Hui Tay, PhD at the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES), Stockholm University, presents in a recently defended doctoral thesis. Flame retardants are chemicals added to various consumer products, such as …
Chemicals in refined cooking oils like palm oil can cause cancer, shown in several studies. In a new doctoral thesis, Jenny Aasa at the Department of Environmental Sciences and Analytical Chemistry (ACES), Stockholm University, has studied two such chemicals, and by using a new approach she hopes to improve and shorten the time for risk assessment. The chemicals that Jenny …
Floating plastic debris in the marine environment can be degraded by reactions initiated by UV-radiation, hydrolysis, and microorganisms. Degradation of plastics releases chemical compounds to the water. The compounds and their amounts are dependent on the plastic polymer and the weathering condition of the plastic. These are the key findings in a recently defended doctoral thesis by Berit Gewert at …
