Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols in Kathmandu, New Hampshire, and Texas: Carbonaceous, Isotopic, and Water-soluble Organic Composition
To improve the understanding of aerosol composition, sources, and spatial and temporal variations, atmospheric aerosols were characterized in three locations. Ambient aerosols were characterized using 24-hour samples ...
Assessing Biological Interactions and Potential Impacts of Emerging Carbonaceous Materials to Terrestrial Organisms
This research addresses the potential ecotoxicity of two emerging carbonaceous materials: C 60 and biochar. The use of these materials is rapidly increasing, as well as their potential for widespread applications. Thus, ...
Strategies for the Mitigation of Oxysterol-Induced Cytotoxicity
Chronic exposure to some oxysterols might contribute to deterioration of human or environmental health. Oxysterols are both biomarkers of oxidative stress as well as mediators of its damage, and play a central role in many ...
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. ...
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 ...
