    ABSTRACT: The concentrations of 41 polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in the river sediments from Luqiao were analyzed by GC-NCI-MS. The objectives of this study were to understand the contents, spatial distribution and sources. The Sigma40 PBDEs (excluding BDE209) concentrations in sediments sampled were in the range of 0.177 to 161 ng x g(-1), with a mean of 22.5 ng x g(-1), and the concentrations of BDE209 were from 0.36 to 958 ng x g(-1), with a mean of 148 ng x g(-1). Deca-BDE was the most predominant in 9 PBDE homologues in most of samples, accounting for 38.4%-96.0%, with an average of 74.4% nona-BDEs and hepta-BDEs, accounting for 3.3%-25.8% and 0.01%-14.1%, respectively. Significant correlations were observed among all of PBDEs congeners, which suggested these PBDEs might have the similar sources. The homologue composition of PBDEs and hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA) showed that most of sampling sites were mainly polluted by deca-BDE formulation, and others polluted by deca-BDE and octa-BDE formulations. Compared to other studies from different countries and regions, the PBDEs concentrations in the present study were at a medium-to-low level. But it should be concerned that a few of sampling sites were highly contaminated by point sources.

    ABSTRACT: The 55 soil samples were collected from Shanghai urban areas in March 2007. The residues and distribution characteristics of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in the soil samples were investigated with gas chromatography. The results showed that HCHs, DDTs, and HCB were in the ranges of nd-38.58 microg x kg(-1), 1.81-79.61 microg x kg(-1) and 0.16-40.25 microg x kg(-1), respectively. The total OCPs concentrations in urban soil of Shanghai ranged from 3.12 microg x kg(-1) to 91.07 microg x kg(-1) with a mean of 22.33 microg x kg(-1), and the p,p'-DDE took over 60% of the total OCPs. The main contaminated areas were distributed in the park and greenbelts. The composition of OCPs indicated that OCPs in soil samples mainly came from historical application. Compared to the reference data, the pollution burden in soil of Shanghai was lower than those in other areas of China and in German, Argentina and Poland.

    ABSTRACT: The concentrations of 16 US EPA PAHs in 37 sediment samples collected from Luqiao were analyzed by isotope dilution gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS), and their distribution characters,sources and ecological risk were further investigated. Each of the 16 PAHs could be detected in all of the sediment samples, the total concentrations of the 16 PAHs in the sediments ranged from 59.3 microg/kg to 3 180 microg/kg,with a mean of 722 microg/kg. The pollution level of PAHs can be categorized as low to moderate when compared with other studies around the world. SigmaPAHs were significantly correlated with TOC (r = 0.699, p < 0.001), indicating that TOC was a key soil property affecting the level and fate of PAHs in sediments. The isomeric ratios and factor analysis revealed that PAHs in the Luqiao sediments were originated from mixed sources, and combustion source was dominant. Six sampling sites had the mean PAH ERL quotient > 1, indicating that some sediments in Luqiao may have potential ecological risk. The toxic benzo[a]pyrene equivalents (TEQ(BaP)) of the 16 PAHs ranged from 3.41 microg/kg to 485 microg/kg, 98.4% of which was contributed by 7 carcinogenic PAHs, indicating that 7 PAHs were the main influential factors to the ecological risk.

    ABSTRACT: Surface soil samples from agricultural soil of Shanghai were collected and analyzed for 24 organochlorine pesticides (OCPs). The concentrations were in the ranges of nd-10.38 n gg(-1) for HCHs (sum of alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-HCH), 0.77-247.45 ng g(-1) for DDTs (sum of p,p'-DDT, p,p'-DDD, p,p'-DDE, and o,p'-DDT), 0.84-10.08 ng g(-1) for CHLs (sum of heptachlor, heptachlor epoxide, cis-chlordane, trans-chlordane, and trans-nonachlor), nd-3.68 ng g(-1) for endosulfan (sum of alpha- and beta-endosulfan), 0.10-3.62 ng g(-1) for HCB and nd-5.69 ng g(-1) for other OCPs (sum of aldrin, dieldrin and endrin). The total OCPs concentrations ranged from 3.16 to 265.24 ng g(-1) and the main contaminated areas were distributed in the south regions of Shanghai (including Fengxian, Nanhui and Jinshan districts). According to the measured concentrations and detection frequencies, HCHs, DDTs, HCB and heptachlor epoxide were the most dominant compounds among the 24 OCPs. The different compositions of DDT, HCH, chlordane and endosulfan indicated that the residues of these compounds in most soil samples originated from historical application, besides slight recent introduction at some sampling locations. The correlation analysis showed no significant relationship between TOC and OCPs. The quality of Shanghai agricultural soil was classified as low pollution by OCPs.

    ABSTRACT: Levels, composition profiles and sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were analyzed in 55 surface soil samples collected from Shanghai urban districts. The total concentrations of 22 PAHs (SigmaPAHs) ranged from 442 to 19,700 microgkg(-1), with a mean of 3780 microgkg(-1), and the sum of 16 priority PAHs (Sigma16PAHs) varied from 347 to 17,900 microgkg(-1), with a mean of 3290 microgkg(-1), and the seven possible carcinogenic PAHs (Sigma7CarPAHs) accounted for 36-58% of Sigma16PAHs. Among different functional areas, the higher level of PAHs was found in the roadside, followed by greenbelt, commercial district, park, and residential district. The composition of PAHs was characterized by the high molecular weight PAHs, among which fluoranthene, pyrene, benzo[b]fluoranthene and chrysene were most dominant components. A correlation analysis showed that there was relatively good correlation among the individual PAHs, but the contents of PAHs were poorly correlated with soil total organic carbon (TOC). A principal component analysis and PAHs isomeric ratios indicate that PAHs in Shanghai urban soil mainly originated from combustion. The toxic assessment suggested that soil PAHs exposure is medium carcinogenic at present level.
