Toxic Interactions Between Tributyltin and Polychlorinated Biphenyls in Aquatic Organisms
In recent years, discharges of anthropogenic chemicals to the environment have been increasing in association with industrial development. These chemicals and their degradation products are released to the environment, discharged into water, and may ultimately contaminate aquatic organisms. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and tributyltin (TBT) are particularly ubiquitous pollutants.
