The present study provides a conservative estimate of the microbead percentage in pelagic microplastics collected in the coastal waters of Japan.
Dear Atsuhiko Isobe , have you or did you plan to analyse the sorbed chemicals of the microbead you collected for this study ?
Moreover, did you know if there is any regulation in progress regarding microplastic particles present as ingredient in personal care and cosmetic products sold in Japan ?
Thank you in advance for your answer,
