Application of incident command system in emergency response

06-Nov-2012 | Qingsheng Wang, Tingguang Ma, Jim Hanson, Michael Larranaga, Process Safety Progress, 2012

Abstract The Incident Command System (ICS) is a standardized approach typically structured into five functional areas: command, operations, planning, logistics, and finance. The system allows for the integration of personnel, facilities, equipment, procedures, and communications within an ...


Acute toxic and cytogenetic effects of carbon nanotubes on aquatic organisms and bacteria

16-Oct-2012 | A. A. Gusev, I. A. Fedorova, A. G. Tkachev, A. Yu. Godymchuk, D. V. Kuznetsov, I. A. Polyakova, Nanotechnologies in Russia, 2012

This paper summarizes a comprehensive study concerning the acute toxicity of a commercial carbon nanomaterial consisting mostly of carbon nanotubes to larvae of Chironomidae, crustaceans Ceriodaphnia affinis, algae Scenedesmus quadricauda, and bacteria Escherichia coli. It is shown that the ...


Quantum Dots Capped with Dummy Molecularly Imprinted Film as Luminescent Sensor for the Determination of Tetrabromobisphenol A in Water and Soils

16-Oct-2012 | Yi-Ping Chen; Da-Ning Wang; Yu-Min Yin; Li-Yun Wang; Xiang-Feng Wang; Meng-Xia Xie, Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, 2012

Molecularly imprinted film with diphenolic acid (DPA) as dummy template molecule has been grafted on the surface of Mn-doped ZnS quantum dots (QDs) to develop a selective and sensitive sensor for rapid determination of tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) in water and soils. The obtained DPA-MIP-QDs ...


Vaporation characteristics of low-melting nitrocompounds by isothermal thermogravimetry

21-Sep-2012 | Rui Liu, Tonglai Zhang, Ying Liu, Li Yang, Zunning Zhou, Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, 2012

Determination of vapor pressure is critical for accurate detection of trace volatile hazardous materials, ensuring human health and environmental security. 2,4,6-Trinitrotoluene (TNT), 3,4-Dinitrofurazanfuroxan (DNTF), and 2,4-Dinitroanisole (DNAN) are an important class of volatile low-melting ...


Excited State Dynamics of Nitrogen Reactive Intermediates at the Threshold of Laser Induced Filamentation

25-Jun-2012 | Bradley R. Arnold, Stephen D. Roberson, Paul M. Pellegrino, Chemical Physics, 2012

It has been suggested that the process of laser induced filamentation can be used in a wide range of applications such as: material processing, controlled electric discharge, and innovative spectroscopic measurements including the remote sensing of pollutants and hazardous materials. During ...


Rapid Estimation of Thermodynamic Parameters and Vapor Pressures of Volatile Materials at Nanoscale

11-Jun-2012 | Walid M. Hikal, Jeffrey T. Paden, Brandon L. Weeks, ChemPhysChem, 2012

Abstract Non‐isothermal measurements of thermodynamic parameters and vapor pressures of low‐volatile materials are favored when time is a crucial factor to be considered, such as in the case of detection of hazardous materials. In this article, we demonstrate that optical absorbance ...


Comparison of Immunoreactivity of Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B Mutants for Use as Toxin Surrogates

07-Jun-2012 | George P. Anderson; Patricia M. Legler; Dan Zabetakis; Ellen R. Goldman, Analytical Chemistry, 2012

The development and testing of detection methodologies for biothreat agents are by their very nature complicated by the necessity to handle hazardous materials. Toxoids prepared by thermal or chemical inactivation are often used in place of the native toxin; however, the process of detoxification ...


Two-step rapid synthesis of mesoporous silica for green tire

04-Jun-2012 | Askwar Hilonga, Jong-Kil Kim, Pradip Bhikaji Sarawade, Dang Viet Quang, Godlisten Namwel Shao, Gideon Elineema, Hee ..., Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering, 2012

We report a two-step rapid route of synthesizing inexpensive mesoporous silica using the waste material (hexafluorosilicic acid, H2SiF6) of phosphate fertilizer industry and sodium silicate (Na2O·SiO2). The reaction was performed in a newly innovated manufacturing apparatus. This apparatus ...


Reduction of thermal radiation by steam in flare stack system

16-Mar-2012 | Heon Seok Lee, Byung Seok Ko, Jae Mo Yang, Chang Jun Lee, Jin Hwan Yoo, Dongil Shin, Chulhwan Park, Jae Wook Ko, Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering, 2012

A flare system is installed for the enhancement of process safety, and the stable combustion is one of the most important elements. The main function of the flare system is the combustion of the flammable or toxic materials into non-hazardous materials, but combustion heat is released from a ...


Thermal decomposition of different types of asbestos

21-Feb-2012 | R. Kusiorowski, T. Zaremba, J. Piotrowski, J. Adamek, Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, 2012

Given the known carcinogenic effects, asbestos minerals are considered as general health hazard. Therefore, the elimination of asbestos materials from the environment is necessary. Asbestos minerals should be entirely transformed to a non-hazardous material. One of these methods is destructing ...
