  • Scientific Evidence Supports a Ban on Microbeads

Environmental Science & Technology

Rochman, Kross, Armstrong, Bogan, Darling, Green, Smyth, and Veríssimo

2015 49 (18), pp 1

  • Microplastic Pollution in Table Salts from China
Yang, Shi, Li, Li, Jabeen, and Kolandhasamy

2015 49 (22), pp 7

Abstract: Microplastics have been found in seas all over the world. We hypothesize that sea salts might contain microplastics, because they are directly supplied by seawater. To test our hypothesis, we collected 15 brands of sea salts, lake salts, and rock/well ...

  • Role of Anaerobic Ammonium Oxidation (Anammox) in Nitrogen Removal from a Freshwater Aquifer
Smith, Böhlke, Song, and Tobias

2015 49 (20), pp 7

Abstract: Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) couples the oxidation of ammonium with the reduction of nitrite, producing N2. The presence and activity of anammox bacteria in groundwater were investigated at multiple locations in an aquifer variably affected by a ...

  • Synthesis and Performance of a Biomimetic Indicator for Alkylating Agents

The Journal of Organic Chemistry

Provencher and Love

2015 80 (19), pp 9603–9609

Abstract: 4-(4-Nitrobenzyl)pyridine (NBP) is a colorimetric indicator compound for many types of carcinogenic alkylating agents. Because of the similar reactivity of NBP and guanine in DNA, NBP serves as a DNA model. NBP assays are used in the toxicological ...

  • Unravelling New Processes at Interfaces: Photochemical Isoprene Production at the Sea Surface
Ciuraru, Fine, Pinxteren, D’Anna, Herrmann, and George

2015 49 (22), pp 5

Abstract: Isoprene is an important reactive gas that is produced mainly in terrestrial ecosystems but is also produced in marine ecosystems. In the marine environment, isoprene is produced in the seawater by various biological processes. Here, we show that ...

  • Elevated Accumulation of Parabens and their Metabolites in Marine Mammals from the United States Coastal Waters
Xue, Sasaki, Elangovan, Diamond, and Kannan

2015 49 (20), pp 9

Abstract: The widespread exposure of humans to parabens present in personal care products is well-known. Nevertheless, little is known about the accumulation of parabens in marine organisms. In this study, six parabens and four common metabolites of parabens were ...
