Children's exposure to hazardous brominated flame retardants in plastic toys
(Elsevier BV, 2020-06-10)
Recycled electronic plastic and marine litter
Evaluation of a closed-system cytotoxic transfer device in a pharmaceutical isolator.
PURPOSE: The occupational risk associated with handling of cytotoxic anticancer drugs is well documented and, in many countries, pharmaceutical isolators are used to contain cytotoxic residues during preparation of cytotoxic ...
Platinum-based anticancer drugs in waste waters of a major UK hospital and predicted concentrations in recipient surface waters.
Concentrations of the cytotoxic platinum-based anticancer drugs, as total Pt, have been measured over a three week period in one of the main drains and in the effluent of the oncology ward of a major UK hospital (Derriford, ...
Occupational exposure to anti-cancer drugs: A review of effects of new technology.
Because anti-cancer drugs are non-selective, they affect both cancerous and non-cancerous cells. Being carcinogenic and mutagenic, many anticancer drugs therefore present a major health risk to healthcare staff working ...
Speciation and reactivity of Cisplatin in river water and seawater.
The adsorption of the cytostatic anticancer drug, cisplatin (cis-PtCl(2)(NH(3))(2)), has been studied after its addition to suspensions of estuarine sediment in river water and seawater. After a 16 h reaction period, ...
An evaluation of the toxicity and bioaccumulation of cisplatin in the marine environment using the macroalga, Ulva lactuca.
The cytotoxic drug, cisplatin (cis-PtCl(2)(NH(3))(2)), has been added to cultures of the marine macroalga, Ulva lactuca, under various experimental conditions. Both accumulation and internalisation over a 48 h period was ...
On site determination of trace metals in estuarine sediments by field-portable-XRF.
A portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer and mobile test stand have been employed to examine the feasibility of on site measurements of trace metals in estuarine sediment. In the laboratory, the instrument was able ...
Mechanism of adsorption of actives onto microporous functionalised calcium carbonate (FCC)
Microporous ‘functionalised’ calcium carbonate (FCC) has potential for use as a carrier for the controlled release of ‘actives’, by permeation and diffusion. We have investigated the nature of the FCC surface and the ...
