Characterization of Microplastics using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) is a spectroscopy technique widely used to analyze polymer profiles of particulate at a chemical level. The goal of this study was to assess the polymer composition of microplastics ...
Micro-plastic Bioaccumulation in Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens) of Lake Champlain
Micro-plastics are discharged into watersheds through wastewater treatment plant effluent and onward into waterbodies. Studies have shown that micro-plastics are bioaccumulating within aquatic organisms found in both fresh ...
