New publications online: Plasticizers in humans and in the environment and a first analysis of fragrances in human samples
Latest data and assessments published in peer reviewed journals
Two new publications of the German Environmental Specimen Bank deal with plasticizers in humans and in the environment:
Nagorka et al. show temporal trends of plasticizer exposure in large German river basins such as the Rhine, Elbe and Danube. The results show that emerging phthalates and non-phthalates substitute for the regulated phthalate plasticizer DEHP.
Apel et al. propose a new approach for the health-related assessment of a mixed exposure to this substance group.
In another publication Pluym et al. show data on the inner exposure towards the fragrance 7-hydroxycitronellal.
