House crickets can accumulate polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) directly from polyurethane foam common in consumer products.
Our experiments revealed that house crickets (Acheta domesticus) provided uncontaminated food and free access to PUF containing Penta-BDE (8.7%drywt) for 28 d accumulated substantial PBDE body burdens. Crickets allowed to depurate gut contents exhibited whole body burdens of up to 13.4 mg kg(-1) lip...
Ecotoxicity test methods for engineered nanomaterials: practical experiences and recommendations from the bench.
Ecotoxicology research is using many methods for engineered nanomaterials (ENMs), but the collective experience from researchers has not been documented. This paper reports the practical issues for working with ENMs and suggests nano-specific modifications to protocols. The review co...
Grip and detachment of locusts on inverted sandpaper substrates.
Locusts (Locusta migratoria manilensis) are characterized by their strong flying and grasping ability. Research on the grasping mechanism and behaviour of locusts on sloping substrates plays an important role in elucidating the mechanics of hexapod locomotion. Data on the maximum ang...
Biomonitoring of heavy metals among nielloware workers in Nakhon Sri Thammarat Province.
To determine lead and mercury concentrations in biological samples from nielloware workers, to describe the association between occupational lifestyle, workposition, work environment, behavioral factors, acute and chronic neurological symptoms, and levels of metals in biological samp...
Hybrid materials that integrate living cells: improved eco-adaptation and environmental applications.
Membrane development for vanadium redox flow batteries.
Large-scale energy storage has become the main bottleneck for increasing the percentage of renewable energy in our electricity grids. Redox flow batteries are considered to be among the best options for electricity storage in the megawatt range and large demonstration systems have al...
Chamber for testing asbestos-containing products: validation and testing of a re-created chrysotile-containing joint compound.
We re-created 1960s-era chrysotile-containing joint compound (JCC) and compared its characteristics to a current-day asbestos-free joint compound (JCN). Validation studies showed that a bench-scale chamber with controlled flow dynamics, designed to quantify particulate emissions from joint compound...
Toric intraocular lens outcome using the manufacturer's prediction of corneal plane equivalent intraocular lens cylinder power.
To describe the refractive outcome of toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation by comparing the postoperative refractive astigmatism with the preoperative keratometric astigmatism target.
Analysis of currently available data for characterising the risk of engineered nanomaterials to the environment and human health - Lessons l...
We have reviewed publicly available hazard and exposure data for both, the environment and human health and attempted to carry out a basic risk assessment appraisal for four types of nanomaterials: fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, metals, and metal oxides (ENRHES project 2009(1)). This paper presents a...
Inside the radar: select elements in nanomaterials and sustainable nanotechnology.
Rare earth elements and several metals formerly uncommon in commerce are being introduced into new products, particularly as nanoscaled materials. Until recently, little attention has been paid to their sustainability issues. This perspective addresses these elements, their commercia...
