Abstract

For the first time we are able to report the identification and quanti. cation of several unexpected alkylated tin compounds such as dimethyldiethyltin, trimethylethyltin and propyltrimethyltin in European municipal waste deposits, by using GC-ICP-MS. Future studies will reveal whether their origin is from the degradation of butyl-, or octyltin compounds or simply products of de novo synthesis within the landfill environment.
