Hu Beibei and Jiang Longfei publish in EI

Hu Beibei’s paper “Uptake and translocation of organophosphate esters by plants: Impacts of chemical structure, plant cultivar and copper” was published in Environment International . Congratulations!

Highlights

  • Distributions of OPEs varied among plant cultivars but shared similar trends.
  • Plant root bioaccumulated more ER-OPEs than OC-OPEs.
  • Cu inhibited ER-OPEs root uptake by interacting with electron-rich structure.
  • Hydrophobicity was critical in OPEs acropetal translocation.
