ALS Scandinavia offers comprehensive analytical solutions for testing of organotin compounds (OTC): from analysis of the 10 most common organotin compounds to analytical packages that include monobutyltin (MBT), dibutyltin (DBT) and tributyltin (TBT), or alternatively just TBT.
Tributyltin is a priority substance in the Water Framework Directive and has been used as a biocide in antifouling paint, as disinfection agent and a preservative in industries, to mention a few applications. In Europe, some of the most important sources of TBT is water treatment plants, industries and contaminated sediment.
