  • Bioavailability of butyltins 

    Wade, T.L.; Garcia-Romero, B.; Brooks, J.M. (Manchester University Press, 1991)
    Due to the world-wide use of tributylin (TBT) containing antifouling paint, there is considerable concern about its fate in the marine environment. The objective of this study was to continue the analyses of oysters as ...
  • Butyltins in sediments and bivalves from U.S. coastal areas 

    Wade, T.L.; Garcia-Romero, B.; Brooks, J.M. (, 1991)
    Butyltin concentrations in sediment samples from U.S. coastal areas ranged from less than 5 to 282 ng Sn/g. Butyltins were detected in 75% of the sediment samples analyzed. The predominant butyltin was TBT, which is also ...
  • Oysters as biomonitors of butyltins in the Gulf of Mexico. 

    Wade, T.L.; Garcia-Romero, B.; Brooks, J.M. (, 1991)
    The concentration of total butyltins and tributyltin in oysters has been measured at 59 Gulf of Mexico sites. The concentration has decreased at 85% of the sites after passage of the Organotin Paint Control Act. At 5% ...
  • Tributyltin contamination in bivalves from United States coastal estuaries. 

    Wade, T.L.; Garcia-Romero, B.; Brooks, J.M. (, 1988)
    Most oysters and mussels from U.S. coastal waters are contaminated with tributyltin (TBT) and its less toxic breakdown products (dibutyltin and monobutyltin). The concentrations of TBTs range from <5 to 1560 (366 av.) ng ...
