How Slow Moving Asbestos Regulations Compromise Health
By Sarah WolvertonWALLINGFORD, CT, US, Sep 24 2019 (IPS) Last year, the United States introduced a new asbestos rule that was received both positively and negatively and Canada banned the mineral altogether. Countries like the U.K. and Australia continue to struggle with the health implications of historic asbestos use, despite both having bans for several years. In contrast, nations like Russia and Vietnam continue to manufacture and use the mineral frequently.  Asbestos is a substance that was used throughout history as an additive in many products to provide heat and fire resistance. It fell out of favor around the...

FDA Expands Recall Of Blood Pressure Drugs Again
(CNN) — Torrent Pharmaceuticals Ltd. has expanded its voluntary recall of two blood pressure medications after trace amounts of a potentially cancer-causing impurity were found during testing. The recall affects Losartan Potassium Tablets USP and Losartan Potassium/hydrochlorothiazide tablets. Tests of some of those medications revealed amounts of N-methylnitrosobutyric acid (NMBA) that were above the US Food and Drug Administration’s daily acceptable levels. This recall is related to the valsartan recall that has been expanded multiple times since July, when separate lots of blood pressure medications from dif...

In the 1980s, the World Acted to Save the Ozone Layer. Here ’s Why the Fight Against Climate Change Is Different
In 1986 and ’87, expeditions to Antarctica confirmed a development that left the world on edge: chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), found in many personal hygiene products, had caused a hole in the ozone layer that was only getting bigger. The news was dramatic enough to spur the signing of the Montreal Protocol by the end of 1987, kicking off the phaseout of CFCs. This month, the European Union’s Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service reports that the area of the Antarctic ozone hole could be the smallest recorded since the mid-1980s. Scientist Susan Solomon led those Antarctic expeditions. In 2008...

An sp-hybridized molecular carbon allotrope, cyclo[18]carbon
Carbon allotropes built from rings of two-coordinate atoms, known as cyclo[n]carbons, have fascinated chemists for many years, but until now they could not be isolated or structurally characterized because of their high reactivity. We generated cyclo[18]carbon (C18) using atom manipulation on bilayer NaCl on Cu(111) at 5 kelvin by eliminating carbon monoxide from a cyclocarbon oxide molecule, C24O6. Characterization of cyclo[18]carbon by high-resolution atomic force microscopy revealed a polyynic structure with defined positions of alternating triple and single bonds. The high reactivity of cyclocarbon and cyclocarbon oxid...
