Abstract

The laboratory methodology and preliminary findings from an ongoing characterisation study of Water Accommodated Fraction solutions (WAF - water systems with dissolved oil components, which is essentially free of dispersed oil droplets) derived from standardised low energy mixing of oils in seawater is presented. The study emphasises a tight connection between chemical characterisation and toxicological testing of WAF, and aims at obtai
