Smoking trendy hookah waterpipes could be even MORE dangerous than other forms of smoking

Researchers in California said one draw of the pipe has the equivalent hazardous substances, such as carbon monoxide, as an entire cigarette.

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2019Source: Journal of Molecular SpectroscopyAuthor(s): V.I. Perevalov, E.V. KarlovetsAbstractThe isotopic substitution relations for the effective dipole moment parameters of a heterogenic diatomic molecule have been derived. These equations are applied to the calculations of the line intensities of the minor carbon monoxide isotopologues, including the radioactive ones. The comparisons of the calculated line intensities of the minor isotopologues to those observed and to those earlier calculated are given. These comparisons show that the used method has potential of predicting...

HensonAbstractWe used metabolic modeling to computationally investigate the potential of bacterial coculture system designs for CO conversion to the platform chemical butyrate. By taking advantage of the native capabilities of wild-type strains, we developed two anaerobic coculture designs by combining Clostridium autoethanogenum for CO-to-acetate conversion with bacterial strains that offer high acetate-to-butyrate conversion capabilities: the environmental bacterium Clostridium kluyveri and the human ...

Abstract In the present work, an experimental investigation was conducted to study the influence of adding aluminum oxide nanoparticles (Al2O3) with different average particle sizes as additive to blends of diesel and waste plastic oil (WPO) on performance, emission, and combustion attributes of single-cylinder diesel engine operated at a constant speed. Two samples of Al2O3 nanoparticle with average particle sizes of 20 and 100 nm were dispersed into a WPO20 blend containing 20% of WPO and 80% of diesel in the mass fractions of 10 and 20 ppm using ultrasonic stabilization. The experimental recordings revealed a d...
