In this study, 48 herbal based products (41 for the pediatric population) were analyzed for the presence of ethanol and residual solvents. Ethanol was not detected in only 12% of the products designed for infants or toddlers aged under 2, and not quantified in only 5 of 14 ‘alcohol free’ products. Actual content was higher than labeled in six out of 11 samples with specified ethanol quantity.

In this study, Mn-Fe modified ZSM-5 are synthesized via sol-gel approach and employed for elemental mercury (Hg0) removal from simulated flue gas at low temperature. The results show that pure ZSM-5 shows poor mercury capture ability with Hg0 removal efficiency of ~8.5–18.8% at 100–300 °C. Mn or Fe modification can both efficiently enhance the Hg0 removal efficiency of the ZSM-5. The sorbent with Mn/Fe molar ratio of 1:2 exhibits the optimal mercury capture ability with the highest Hg0 removal efficiency near 100% at temperatures of 200 and 250 °C due to the significant synergy effect between Mn2O3 ...

CONCLUSIONS: Findings demonstrate significant heterogeneity with a core workforce supported by a range of non-core and indirect actors. Identifying characteristics and needs of the workforce supports coordinated capacity building to implement effective injury prevention and safety promotion initiatives. With this being the first review of the workforce in WA, this paper highlights the need to more regularly audit the sector to determine its breadth and composition.
