The usage of dyes has been tremendously augmented due to industrialization and human’s intrinsic fascination with colors. Owing to their excessive usage in industries like textiles, food, cosmetics, paints, printing etc., it is indisputably a contributing factor in aquatic pollution. Dyes effluents have emerged as a burgeoning challenge. Owing to i...

An important contributor to global warming is the incessant escalation in carbon dioxide gas (CO2) levels in the air, mainly attributed to combustion of fossil fuels. A promising strategy to regulate emission of greenhouse gases into open air is the implementation of carbon capture systems at existing and prospective carbon‐releasing infrastructure...

Two-dimensional (2D) coordination polymers are very interesting materials for their attractive applications. A novel 2D metal-organic framework (MOF) was derived from copper(II) and amino benzoic acid under both room temperature and solvothermal reaction conditions using different solvents. From both synthesis methods, an identical MOF was crystali...

A fiber optic sensor for monitoring mercuric (Hg 2+) ions in the aqueous sample have been developed based on modified cladding. To fabricate a D-shaped sensing zone onto the multimode optical fiber lengthwise polishing was utilized using a mechanical end and edge polishing system. The produced sensing region has dimensions of 10 mm ×125 µm × 62 µm...

Three‐dimensional bioactive, antioxidant, and porous nanocomposite scaffolds are inevitable to avoid dependency and disability in the life cycle. Herein, we develop a facile fabrication protocol of nano porous zinc doped hydroxyapatite (Zn‐HAp) scaffold enhanced by polysaccharide polymeric structure for bone tissue engineering applications. The bio...

190 children aged 7-18 years from an endemic fluorotic village "Talab Sarai (n = 130) and a non-fluorotic, control, village "Ottawa" (n = 60) were selected for comparison. Children were examined for fluoride (F-) concentration in drinking water, urine, and serum as well as Dental fluorosis (DF) and thyroid hormone levels. The mean concentration of...

In the present study 134 children were studied for comparison and correlation between an endemic fluorotic village Rukh Mudke (RM), n = 74 , and a non-fluorotic village Ottawa (OTW), n = 60 . The children were aged between 7-18 years and selected for the estimation of fluoride in their household water, body fluids (urine-serum), dental fluorosis an...

Volatile oil composition of leaves and fruits of Terminalia arjuna (Roxb.) was reported for the first time. Oils were extracted by microwave assisted hydrodistillation where yield of both oils were found to be 0.20% and their GC-MS analyses led to the identification of 65 and 48 constituents, respectively. Major constituents of leaves were carvacro...

Designing an efficient electrocatalytic system for water splitting with high stability using low‐cost materials and simple methods is highly demanded for application in chemical energy conversion. Here, we show active water oxidation catalysis using surface immobilized Co and Ni‐based heterogeneous electrocatalytic assemblages, by the conversion of...

Surface morphological induced electrical conductivity and specific surface area of a material play a significant role to facilitate electrochemical behavior for supercapacitors applications. Therefore, the synthesis step for controlling such parameters becomes very imperative and challenging. Herein, ZnS nanoweb is deposited directly on Ni foam hav...

A summer field campaign was conducted at the forested background site of K-puszta in Hungary. The main aim was to assess the contribution of terpene-derived particulate organic compounds to the PM2.5 organic carbon (OC) and of the secondary organic carbon (SOC) from α-pinene to the OC. The study lasted from 24 May to 29 June 2006; the first half th...

In this study, novel smart drug release films were prepared by blending chitosan with polyethylene glycol methyl ether (PEGME), also named as methoxy polyethylene glycol (mPEG), for controlled drug release applications. The polymeric films were characterized by Fourier transform infra-red for functional groups analysis, scanning electron microscopy...

Studying the chemical composition of biomass burning aerosol (BBA) is very important in order to assess their impact on the climate and the biosphere. In the present study, we focus on the characterization of some newly recognized biomass burning aerosol tracers including methyl nitrocatechols, nitroguaiacols and 4-nitrocatechol, but also on nitrop...

Humic-like substances (HULIS) are ubiquitously present in the troposphere and make up a major fraction of continental fine-sized water-soluble organic compounds. They are regarded as material with strong polar, acidic and chromophoric properties; however, structural information at the individual component level is rather limited. In the present stu...

Environmental context. Ambient fine aerosol from forested sites contains secondary organic aerosol from the oxidation of monoterpenes that are emitted by the vegetation, mainly by conifers. These biogenic aerosols can have varying lifetimes in the atmosphere because they contain first-generation oxidation products of a-pinene as well as aged produc...
Conference Paper
One of the largest primary sources of organic aerosols in the atmosphere is biomass burning (Laskin et al., 2009). The chemistry of compounds present in biomass burning aerosol (BBA) is diverse and directly dependent on the chemical composition of the burning material and the combustion conditions (Simoneit et al., 2002). A well-established tracer...
Article
In this study, we present liquid chromatographic and mass spectral data for predominant terpenoic acids formed through oxidation of α-pinene, β-pinene, d-limonene, and Δ(3)-carene that occur in fine forest aerosol from K-puszta, Hungary, a rural site with coniferous vegetation. Characterization of these secondary organic aerosol tracers in fine amb...

In the present study, we have characterized the structure of a higher-molecular weight (MW) 358 alpha- and beta-pinene dimeric secondary organic aerosol (SOA) product that received ample attention in previous molecular characterization studies and has been elusive. Based on mass spectrometric evidence for deprotonated molecules formed by electrospr...

Blue haze is a natural phenomenon that is observed in forested regions worldwide and is due to the formation of secondary organic aerosol (SOA) particles. While evidence exists for organic molecular clusters in the size range of < 2 nm, the chemical structures of the nucleating particles have remained unresolved. In the present study, novel SOA pro...
