Chlorophenols in the environment
Jíšová, Tereza ; Tesařová, Eva (advisor) ; Pavlík, Milan (referee)
Chlorophenols belong to major environmental pollutants and are characterized by their considerable toxicity, persistence and bioaccumulation. For their bactericidal and fungicidal properties have multiple uses. They are readily formed during water chlorination process and cause sensoric defects of drinking water. Thus they are posing a serious health hazard. Chlorophenols also occur in nature in minor amounts due to natural activity. The presence of chlorophenols in water samples is determined by various analytical methods. In this work, emphasis is placed on their determination by gas chromatography. The model assay was performed for 2-chlorophenol and 4-chlorophenol using derivatization and subsequent extraction with a final analysis by gas chromatography with electron capture detection. The limit of detection for 2-chlorophenol was 2.47 μg/l for 4-chlorophenol 3.14 μg/l. Key words: Chlorophenols, determination chlorophenols, degradation, toxicity
Uptake and Distribution of Chlorphenols in Barley
Jíšová, Tereza ; Forczek, Sándor ; Tesařová, E.
Chlorinated phenols represent one of the most common groups of toxic industrial compounds.\nThey are resistant to biodegradation in the environment and persist for a long time. Food crops\nsuch as spring barley, are susceptible to contamination by various pesticides and organic waste,\nand these substances can then get into the plants. Uptake and distribution of 2-chlorophenol were\ninvestigated in axenic spring barley. After absorption of 14C-labelled 2-chlorophenol, the plants\nwere harvested and extracts were analyzed for 2-CP derived radioactivity. The uptake of 2-CP to\nroots and transport to leaves were confirmed. Radioactive balance was calculated for individual\nplants.
