Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

The results of this publications mentioned that the acrylic acid concentrations which were found in ouster culture sea water (Brown et al. 1997), in the mantle of scallops (Kodoma and Ogata 1983), in crustaceae and in the gastrointestinal tracts of penguins (Sieburth 1960) were caused by algae of the marine phytoplankton which are part of the food chain of this organisms.

For example, the free acrylic acid content of the marine alga Phaecystis can be 7.4% dw (Sieburth 1960).
