Abstract

3-nitrophthalic acid was detected in the water of the Aegean Sea and in the mussels collected from the Çanakkale Strait (Dardanelles). 3-nitrostyrene was detected in the sea water of the Golden Horn, Istanbul. The detection of 3-nitrophthalic acid in mussels and 3-nitrostyrene in sea water was made for the first time in aquatic environment.
