New Sorbent from Agro-industrial Waste and its Potential Use in 17ß-Estradiol and 17α-Ethynylestradiol Removal
Suzimara Rovani*, Éder C. Lima, Renato Cataluña, Andreia N. Fernandes

In recent years, the increasing introduction of new chemicals in the market, and the development of more accurate analytical methods, added a variety of endocrine disruptors compounds (EDC). Even though they are found in very low concentrations (range of ng L-1) there is still a lack of knowledge about long-term risks of EDC for non-target organisms as well as for human health.

Identification and classification of antifouling compounds secreted by anti MIC microorganisms. A metabolomic analysis.
Albillos SM; Balaña-Fouce R; Montero O; Barreiro-Mendez C; Blas-Galindo E; Barros-García R; Guedella-Bustamante E; Ullán RV

BIOCORIN project, aims to develop a green alternative to the coatings and solutions used up to date for MIC corrosion control. Some of the results of this project are presented here, with the identification of several relevant antifouling compounds secreted by environmentally isolated anti-MIC strains of microorganisms via a metabolomic approach.

Detection of Environmental Contaminants Caused by the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico by GC and HPLC
Sky Countryman, Ngoc Nguyen, Jeff Layne, Kory Kelly and Zeshan Aqeel

In order to help understand the impact that the oil spill has caused, laboratories are looking for rapid and robust analytical procedures to characterize the hydrocarbon contaminants. This work provides SPE, GPC, GC-FID, GC/MS, and HPLC analytical methods for analyzing the most common contaminants that originated from the leak.

Detection and Identification of Dispersants (COREXIT® 9527 and 9500) by GC/MS and LC-MS/MS
Sky Countryman, Matthew Trass, Seyed Sadjadi, Jeff Layne

Dispersants are plasticizers commonly used to prevent clumping and help dissipate oil slicks. In this work, we used GC/MS and LC-MS/ MS to detect and indentify two of the most widely used dispersants (Corexit 9527 and 9500).

Novel QSAR Models for Predicting Toxicity of Chemicals to Aquatic Organisms and Identifying the Mode of Action
Kiril Lanevskij, Liutauras Juska, Remigijus Didziapetris and Pranas Japertas

This study presents the application of recently introduced GALAS modeling methodology for estimating toxicity of chemicals to several aquatic species. Experimental data were expressed as median lethal concentration of test compound in water (LC50) and the data set contained 904 LC50 values for fishes (Pimephales promelas) and 589 LC50 values for crustaceans (Daphnia magna).
