Abstract:

The utility of organotin compounds as antifouling toxicants in marine coatings is now well established. However, the leaching and killing mechanisms are poorly understood. A basic leaching model has been developed for a series of organotin toxicants and have designed an experimental approach for the verification, refutation or modification of this model.
