Indoor Wood-Burning Stove and Fireplace Use and Breast Cancer in a Prospective Cohort Study

Conclusions: In this prospective study, using an indoor wood-burning stove/fireplace in the longest adult residence at least once a week and burning either wood or natural gas/propane was associated with a modestly higher risk of breast cancer. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP827 Received: 18 July 2016 Revised: 16 November 2016 Accepted: 09 December 2016 Published: 18 July 2017 Address correspondence to A.J.

The porous ZnO nanorocks (ZnR) provided more available external surfaces for later coatings. Measurements show that the increase in p-type PEDOT:PSS thickness in the PEDOT:PSS/ZnR electrode (PZR-electrode) enhanced the redox current, while the turn-on voltage still remained at approximately 0.23 V. For the...

In this study, two novel benzimidazolium salts consisting propane sulfonate order were integrated in high yields as N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) precursors.The silver-NHC buildings were set up by responding 1-(2,2-dimethoxyethyl)- 3-(propyl-3-sulfonate)benzimidazolium and 1-(2,2-diethoxyethyl)- 3-(propyl-3-sulfonate)benzimidazolium with silver oxide on average state. Gold-NHC edifices were acquired by means of transmetallation of their silver precursors with [AuCl{S(CH3)2}]. The structures of all mixes were completely portrayed by spectroscopic techniques (1H-NMR, 13C{1H} NMR , IR and elemental and further analyzed by DFT/...
