IJERPH, Vol. 13, Pages 292: Estimation of the Human Extrathoracic Deposition Fraction of Inhaled Particles Using a Polyurethane Foam Collection Substrate in an IOM Sampler

07-Mar-2016 | Sleeth, Darrah K.; Balthaser, Susan A.; Collingwood, Scott ; Larson, Rodney R., International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2016

Extrathoracic deposition of inhaled particles (i.e., in the head and throat) is an important exposure route for many hazardous materials. Current best practices for exposure assessment of aerosols in the workplace involve particle size selective sampling methods based on particle penetration into ...


Investigation of the Storage Behavior of Shredded Lithium‐Ion Batteries from Electric Vehicles for Recycling Purposes

11-Sep-2015 | Martin Grützke, Steffen Krüger, Vadim Kraft, Britta Vortmann, Sergej Rothermel, Martin Winter, Sascha Nowak, ChemSusChem, 2015

Abstract Shredding of the cells is often the first step in lithium‐ion battery (LIB) recycling. Thus, LiNi1/3Mn1/3Co1/3O2 (NMC)/graphite lithium‐ion cells from a field‐tested electric vehicle were shredded and transferred to tinplate or plastic storage containers. The formation of hazardous ...


Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for the Sensing of Explosives and Chemical Warfare Agents

26-Feb-2015 | Lu, Wei; Xue, Min; Xu, Zhibin; Dong, Xiao; Xue, Fei; Wang, Fengyan; Wang, Qiuhong; Meng, Zihui, Organic Chemistry, 2015

Abstract: Recent events related to the terrorist threats make it clear that real-time and on-site detection of explosives and chemical warfare agents (CWAs) are in an urgent demand. As an artificial mimic of natural receptors, molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have already been utilized ...


Lac‐Mégantic accident: What we learned

26-Feb-2015 | Jean‐Paul Lacoursière, Paul‐André Dastous, Stéphanie Lacoursière, Process Safety Progress, 2015

A tragic train derailment in Lac‐Megantic, a small Quebec community caused 47 fatalities, the destruction of part of the town and huge cleaning costs. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) has conducted an in‐depth investigation of the causes of Lac‐Mégantic accident and has formulated ...


A Fully Automated Ad‐ and Desorption Method for Resin and Solvent Screening

05-Jun-2013 | S. Schuldt, G. Schembecker, Chemical Engineering & Technology, 2013

Abstract Ad‐ and desorption are common techniques for the purification of natural substances. The main drawback is the tedious experimental procedure for resin and solvent screening. An approach of fully automated batch experiments is presented. In order to fulfill all requirements like ...


One company's near miss program–successes, learning, and improvements

01-May-2013 | Shakeel Kadri, Glen Peters, James VanOmmeren, Process Safety Progress, 2013

Process safety events (or near misses and incidents) are key indicators of a company's process safety performance. The goal in reporting and evaluating near misses is to improve operators’ hazards awareness by recognizing unsafe conditions and acting on less‐severe Tier 3 near miss events before ...


Quality problems as process safety warning signs

24-Apr-2013 | John W. Herber, Process Safety Progress, 2013

Many companies collect and report process safety incidents. Some companies also collect process safety near misses. These safety near misses are sometimes quality deviations; for example, a process parameter that exceeds the safe operating limit, a critical safety system that is activated, or a ...


Electrochemical monitoring of the interaction of UO22+ with immobilized DNA

18-Mar-2013 | Bioelectrochemistry, 2013

Available online 1 March 2013 Publication year: 2013Source:Bioelectrochemistry Interaction of uranyl ion (UO2 2+) with immobilized double strand calf thymus DNA (ds-ct-DNA) on zirconium attached gold-mercaptopropionic acid self-assembled monolayer (Au-MPA-Zr(IV) SAM) is monitored by ...


The importance of leadership and management in process safety

30-Jan-2013 | Charles King, Process Safety Progress, 2013

Process safety management (PSM) is often presented as technically complex, requiring a large staff of engineers and specialists with an array of tools and techniques that appear to grow in intricacy and sophistication year by year. Large companies are generally well positioned to operate in this ...


Effects of various fire-extinguishing reagents for thermal hazard of triacetone triperoxide (TATP) by DSC/TG

08-Nov-2012 | Sheng-Hung Wu, I-Jyh Wen, Chung-Cheng Chiang, Shu-Hsiang Hsu, Chuen-Tzay Kuo, Yung-Tin Wu, Yi-Hao Huang, Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, 2012

Acetone, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), and sulfuric acid (H2SO4) are easily to produce triacetone triperoxide (TATP), which is an organic peroxide and a hazardous material. The aim of this study was to analyze the thermal hazard of various fire-extinguishing reagents mixed with TATP. Various ...
