  1. A principal components analysis of the factors effecting personal exposure to air pollution in urban commuters in Dublin, Ireland.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1219 (2009) PMID 19847708

    Principal component analysis was used to examine air pollution personal exposure data of four urban commuter transport modes for their interrelationships between pollutants and relationships with traffic and meteorological data. Air quality samples of PM2.5 and VOCs were recorded during peak tra...
  2. Electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometric determination of cadmium and lead in traces in aquatic systems following flotation by two chromium(III) collectors.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1274 (2009) PMID 19847715

    A fast flotation method for determination of cadmium and lead in aquatic systems by two chromium(III) collectors is described. The first collector is a colloid precipitate of hydrated chromium(III) oxide, Cr2O3 x xH2O, while the second is a bulk chromium(III) pentamethylenedithiocarbamate, Cr(PM...
  3. Variation, correlation, and toxicity of phenolic endocrine-disrupting compounds in surface water.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1244 (2009) PMID 19847712

    This study investigated the variation in toxicity of phenolic endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) and determined the correlation between their concentrations. All twenty-four samples acquired from a polluted river contained five phenolic EDCs. The EDC nonylphenol (NP) concentration was found t...
  4. Perfluoroalkyl sulfonic and carboxylic acids: a critical review of physicochemical properties, levels and patterns in waters and wastewaters, and treatment methods.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1145 (2009) PMID 19847705

    Perfluorinated acids (PFAs) are an emerging class of environmental contaminants present in various environmental and biological matrices. Two major PFA subclasses are the perfluorinated sulfonic acids (PFSAs) and carboxylic acids (PFCAs). The physicochemical properties and partitioning behavior ...
  5. A blood lead benchmark for assessing risks from childhood lead exposure.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1200 (2009) PMID 19847706

    Lead exposure is an insidious problem, causing subtle effects in children at low exposure levels where clinical signs are not apparent. Although a target blood lead concentration (Pb(B)) of ten micrograms per deciliter (10 microg/dL) has been used as the basis for environmental decision-making i...
  6. Performance of COD removal from oxide chemical mechanical polishing wastewater using iron electrocoagulation.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1289 (2009) PMID 19847717

    This study investigated the feasibility of chemical oxygen demand (COD) abatement from oxide chemical mechanical polishing (oxide-CMP) wastewater. The process variables, including applied voltage, electrolyte concentration and temperature, were evaluated in terms of COD removal efficiency. In ad...
  7. Occurrence and distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the Egyptian aquatic environment.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1237 (2009) PMID 19847711

    Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are of great concern due to their persistence, bioaccumulation and toxic effects. In this study, water samples were collected during 2007-2008 from two catchment areas that represent two different models of the ...
  8. Degradation of chlorinated butenes and butadienes in granular iron columns.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1209 (2009) PMID 19847707

    Manufacturing facilities for production of chlorobutyl rubber have the potential to release a mixture of at least 5 chlorinated butenes and butadienes including trans-1,4-dichlorobutene-2 (1,4-DCB-2), 3,4-dichlorobutene-1 (3,4-DCB-1), 2,3,4-trichlorobutene-1 (TCB), 2-chlorobutadiene-1,3 (chlorop...
  9. Development and optimization of a culture medium for L-lactic acid production by Rhizopus oryzae using crude protein from dairy manure as a nitrogen source.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1306 (2009) PMID 19847719

    Experiments were conducted using the crude protein in fresh dairy manure as the nitrogen source in the culture media for Rhizopus oryzae to produce L-lactic acid. Two uniform design experiments were carried out with one for optimizing seed culture while the other for best percent L-lactic acid p...
  10. Corrosion control in water supply systems: effect of pH, alkalinity, and orthophosphate on lead and copper leaching from brass plumbing.

    Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Pa... 44(12):1251 (2009) PMID 19847713

    This study explored the potential of lead and copper leaching from brass plumbing in the Auckland region of New Zealand. A five-month field investigation, at six representative locations, indicated that Auckland's water can be characterized as soft and potentially corrosive, having low alkalinit...
