Assessing Exposure to Household Air Pollution: A Systematic Review and Pooled Analysis of Carbon Monoxide as a Surrogate Measure of Particulate Matter

Conclusions: Our results suggest that exposure to CO is not a consistently valid surrogate measure of exposure to PM2.5. Studies measuring CO exposure as a surrogate measure of PM exposure should conduct local validation studies for different stove/fuel types and seasons. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP767 Received: 06 July 2016 Revised: 19 December 2016 Accepted: 20 December 2016 Published: 28 July 2017 Address correspondence to J.

SalesAbstractHistamine (HIS) is a major public health problem due to its toxic properties. High levels can cause a chronic toxicity as poisoning and can be used as a signal of food hygiene. Thus, a new electrochemical sensor for HIS detection in fish is presented herein, prepared by tailoring a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) sensing material on a gold screen-printed electrode (Au-SPEs), in which the polymeric film was generated in-situ.

Khmelevsky, A.M. GaskovAbstractNanocrystalline complex oxides NixCo3-xO4 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) were obtained via co-precipitation of oxalates with subsequent thermal decomposition and characterized in detail by ICP-MS, XRD, TEM, XPS and EPR methods. It was found that complex oxides NixCo3-xO4, where x ≤ 0.25, can be considered as Co3O4 based solid solutions with a normal spinel structure, while NixCo3-xO4 with a high nicke...

However, the volume effect, the dissolution of polysulfide intermediates and the low conductivity during the charge/discharge process lead to the low specific capacity and poor cycling stability. NiS2/rGO nanocomposite was prepared by a facile two-step process: GO was prepared by modified Hummers method, and then NiS2/rGO n...

Here, we report one-pot wet chemical method to synthesize two polymorphs of Au19Ag4(S-Adm)15 nanocluster protected by 1-adamantanethiol (HS-Adm), which adopt P-1 and P21/c space group respectively. The crystal structures of two polymorphs were determined by X-ray crystallography. Compared to the previously reported Au19Ag4(S-Adm)15 nanocluster adopting P21/n space group, polymorphs of Au19Ag4(S-Adm)15 ...

This protocol possesses good functional group tolerance and high yields. Mechanistic studies suggested that a classic two-step radical process was involved, which includes addition of CF3S radical to triple bond and cyclization with SMe moiety.Graphical abstractAn efficient and p...

Di-olefination at 2,8-positions also achieved with silver hexafluoroantimonate as an additive under similar reaction conditions. Weakly coordinating groups, such as ketone, aldehyde, amide and ester, were used as directing groups. The ester group can be removed under acid conditions and therefore is used as...

PetterssonAbstractTwo different SCR catalysts, V2O5-WO3/TiO2 and Cu-SSZ-13, were exposed to biodiesel exhausts generated by a diesel burner. The effect of phosphorus and sulfur on the SCR performance of these catalysts was investigated by doping the fuel with P-, S-, or P + S-containing compounds. Elemental analyses showed that both catalysts captured phosphorus while only Cu-SSZ-13 captured sulfur....
