Abstract

Butyltin compounds (BTs) including mono-(MBT), di-(DBT) and tributyltin (TBT) were determined in livers of humans and wild terrestrial mammals, such as raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoids) and monkeys (Macaca fuscata) fromJapan. In addition, 22 samples of plastic products were analyzed. BT residues were detected in all the liver samples of humans and raccoon dogs, withconcentrations of < 360 ng/g wet wt, whereas concentrations in the liver of monkeys were either less than the detection limit or were only in trace levels. Elevated concentrations of BTs, particularly DBT (< 140,000 ng/g) and MBT (< 130,000 ng/g), were found in some plastic products, such as bakingparchments made from siliconized paper and gloves made up from polyurethane. The results of a cooking test using the above baking parchment indicatedthe transfer of BTs to foodstuffs. These observations suggest expansion ofBT contamination among terrestrial mammals. BT pollution from industrial appliances, such as plastic stabilizers and catalysts other than those of marine origin as antifouling agents, are suggested as alternative sources of exposure.
