English Abstract

Using headspace solid phase microextraction combined with gas chromatography and flame photometric detector, organotin compounds in water, bottom soil and marine gastropod (Thais clavigera) are investigated at 21 sampling stations in three hobors (Xiamen, Shantou, and Huiyang) along southeast coast of China from November 2001 to August 2002. The results show that the concentrations of monobutyltin (MBT) in most of samples are the highest, followed by tributyltin (TBT), but dibutyltin is almost under detect limit. The concentrations of TBT varied from below detect limit to 9.8ng/dm^3 in water samples, 0.3~174.7ng/g (dw) in bottom soil, and 2.1~23.0ng/g (ww) in marine gastropods. TBT is highest in the water samples from Huiyang Hobor, but in bottom soils and marine gastropods the highests are all found in the samples from Xiamen Harbor. The factors to affect concentration of organotins and its special distribution are ship throughput and hydrological condition in each harbor, investigated season, and distance from sampling station to large-scale dock. Based on the data in the present and correlative studies, organotin contamination along Chinese Coast would be universal and serious, and have showed adverse effect on ecosystem, especial to marince gastropods.
