Synthetic Musk Fragrances in the Great Lakes

This study measured both polycyclic musks and nitro-musks in Lake   Erie and Ontario sediment.  Sediment concentrations showed that the   input of synthetic musk fragrances into the lakes is increasing over   time.  The results showed that the rate of increase in deposition of   these compounds in Great Lakes sediments corresponds to rates of   increase in production of synthetic musk fragrances.    (synthetic musk fragrances); (toxic organic); (toxic organics);   (chemicals of concern); (chemical of concern); (chemicals of   emerging concern); (chemical of emerging concern); (synthetic musk   fragrance)
