14 Treated for Carbon Monoxide Exposure at Downtown Nashville Hotel

  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) - Crews with the Nashville Fire Department were called to the Westin Nashville in downtown Wednesday morning for a carbon monoxide incident. The leak was reported around 6:45 a.m. at the hotel on Clark Place. At first, six people reported symptoms of CO exposure. The number of people feeling sick rose through the day. By 2 p.m., 14 people were treated by medics, including six who were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

AbstractThe Mojave rattlesnake is a unique species of pit viper that expresses either a highly potent phospholipase A2 (PLA2)-dependent neurotoxin containing venom nearly devoid of fibrinogenolytic metalloproteinases (venom type A) or a hemotoxic venom with a high percentage of metalloproteinases and PLA2 without any neurotoxin present (venom type B) depending on its geographical location in the Southwestern United States and Mexico. Given that PLA2 have been demonstrated to affect coagulation, it was hypothesized that the anticoagulant effects of both type A and B venoms could be assessed by thrombelastography, and determ...

This study describes a facile strategy for the synthesis of palladium oxide (PdO)/tin oxide (SnO2)/ cupric oxide (CuO) nanocomposite with different PdO contents and their application as carbon monoxide (CO) sensing materials. The structure, surface composition and morphology of the materials were scrutinized by X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The gas sensing properties of all sensors were investigated by exposing them to various concentration of CO gas ranging from 100 to 2000 ppm. The result...

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neuron activity and GnRH secretion are essential for fertility in mammals. Here, I review findings from mouse studies on the direct modulation of GnRH neuron activity and GnRH secretion by non-peptide neurotransmitters (GABA, glutamate, dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, epinephrine, histamine, ATP, adenosine, and acetylcholine), gasotransmitters (nitric oxide and carbon monoxide), and gliotransmitters (prostaglandin E2 and possibly GABA, glutamate, and ATP). These neurotransmitters, gasotransmitters, and gliotransmitters have been shown to directly modulate activity and/or GnRH secr...

In this study, the absorption lines for the rotational transitions of carbon monoxide (CO) and nitric oxide (NO) were measured in the terahertz range 400–1000 GHz at room temperature and around 340 K. A signal-to-noise ratio of 140 for the absorbance of the J = 8–7 rotational transition for CO gas was achieved. This measurement approach allows simultaneous measurement of the temperature and concentration of each gas by reference to the Boltzmann plot of their absorbances. The temperatures obtained for both gases were consistent with those measured using a thermocouple within the respective 1-σ errors. Mor...

JalilAbstractOne of the significant approaches for syngas (hydrogen and carbon monoxide) production is through dry reforming process in which CO2 reacted with hydrocarbons such as methane. Current research focuses on new strategies for preparation of new hybrid catalyst with enhanced activity and highly resistant toward carbon deposition. Noble metal catalysts such as ruthenium has shown to be the most active and stable. However, these noble metals ...

According to the Bell–Evans–Polanyi principle, CO adsorption energies (Eads,CO) directly affect the activation energies for CO hydrogenation. Thus, the understanding of the relationship between Eads,CO and the chemical properties of the catalytic surface is fundamental to catal...

Publication date: Available online 15 May 2019Source: Catalysis TodayAuthor(s): A.A. Philippov, A.M. Chibiryaev, O.N. MartyanovAbstractCatalytic reduction of oxygen-containing aromatic compounds has been studied under transfer hydrogenation (TH) conditions at 150 °C in 2-PrOH as a hydrogen donor. Raney® nickel is used as a heterogeneous catalyst. The reaction of aromatic non-phenolic carbonyl compounds is most likely to proceed through the pathway “aromatic ketone (aldehyde)→ aromatic alcohol→alkylaromatics→saturated alkylcyclohexane”. One of the main reactions under the TH conditions is ...
