Characterization, seasonality and source apportionment of fine particulate organic matter at urban an d rural sites
To better understand the sources of organic PM and the effect of secondary organic aerosols (SOA) on PM levels, samples of fine particulate matter were collected outside Durham, NC in the Duke Research Forest as part of ...
Photosensitization properties of carbon-60 and fullerol aqueous suspensions
This work provides a framework by which to judge the photochemical properties of water suspended fullerene and its derivatives. Assessment of photosensitization properties is essential to understanding the potential of ...
Characterization of sugars in fine particles – Biomass burning and soil organic matter as two major sources
Fine particulate matter samples were collected at two rural sites and one urban site in Texas from November 2005 to July 2006 for quantification of sugars. Several extraction methods were applied to optimize sugar recovery, ...
Nanocarboneous materials in water: Interaction of nanocarbon(60) with soil and organic pollutants
The property of nanosized colloidal C 60 (nano-C 60 ) suspensions prepared by ultra sonication method was examined for electrochemical properties and stability under different physiochemical conditions. Adsorption experiments ...
Carbon-60 nanoparticles: Adsorption and desorption of organic contaminants, and transport in soil
C 60 is a new form of carbon with unique properties due to its small size. Since it has been predicted that C 60 will be manufactured by tons, there is no doubt that it will ultimately find their way to the environment. ...
