Abstract:

Scientist at the David Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center are currently developing and evaluating a new procedure for measuring the release rate of organotin form antifouling paint. As part of this procedure, a panel painted with organotin antifouling paint is place in a test tank filled with water. The release rate of organotin is determined by measuring the increasing concentration in the water, and plotting it against time. The slope of this line as determined by linear regression provides an estimate of the organotin release rate.
