Article
Surface area in addition to mass concentration is increasingly being emphasized as an important metric representing potential adverse health effects from exposure to inhaled particles. Lung-deposited surface area (SA) concentrations for a variety of aerosols: coal, biomass, cigarette, incense, candle, and TiO2 were measured using an AeroTrak 9000 (...
Article
Stability of suspensions of TiO2 nanoparticles synthesized by the flame aerosol reactor (FLAR) could be altered by doping TiO2 nanoparticles with Pt, Pd, or Pt–Pd dopants. It was found that doping of TiO2 with Pd or Pt could contribute to the control of the agglomeration of TiO2 suspended in water. With the change of doping content, the isoelectric...
Article
With the rapid expansion of industrial nanotechnology applications, engineered nanoparticles are being introduced into the environment before the controls on their fate and mobility are fully understood. In this study, we measured the adhesion of TiO2 nanoparticles onto silica and Fe(III) oxide-coated silica surfaces as a function of pH, nanopartic...

We examine if social and economic factors, fuelwood availability, market and media access are associated with owning a modified stove and variation in household emissions from biomass combustion, a significant environmental and health concern in rural India. We analyze cross-sectional household socio-economic data, and PM(2.5) and particulate surfa...
Article
There is an urgent need for in vitro screening assays to evaluate nanoparticle (NP) toxicity. However, the relevance of in vitro assays is still disputable. We administered doses of TiO(2) NPs of different sizes to alveolar epithelial cells in vitro and the same NPs by intratracheal instillation in rats in vivo to examine the correlation between in...
Article
Charge distribution characteristics were investigated for nanoparticles synthesized in a diffusion flame aerosol reactor. The nanoparticles considered were pristine TiO2 and Cu–TiO2, with Cu dopant concentrations ranging from 1 to 5 wt% with particle size from 25 to 60 nm. In situ measurements were conducted by integrating a tandem differential mob...
Article
It has been shown that photocatalytic TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) can be used as an efficient anti-microbial agent under UV light due to generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), while Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 is a metal-reducing bacterium highly susceptible to UV radiation. Interestingly, we found that the presence of Cu-doped TiO2 NPs in the cu...

The properties of Cu-doped TiO(2) nanoparticles (NPs) were independently controlled in a flame aerosol reactor by varying the molar feed ratios of the precursors, and by optimizing temperature and time history in the flame. The effect of the physico-chemical properties (dopant concentration, crystal phase and particle size) of Cu-doped TiO(2) nanop...
Article
Nanomaterial suspensions with different dopant types and compositions were investigated to examine their effects on agglomeration through the measurement of hydrodynamic diameter (HD), surface charge, and isoelectric point (IEP). Four different types of nanoparticles, all synthesized by a flame aerosol reactor, were considered for the analysis. The...

ABSTRACT: Synthesis and characterization of long wavelength visible-light absorption Cu-doped TiO2 nanomaterials with well-controlled properties such as size, composition, morphology, and crystal phase have been demonstrated in a single-step flame aerosol reactor. This has been feasible by a detailed understanding of the formation and growth of nan...
Article
Exposure to traffic-related pollution during childhood has been associated with asthma exacerbation, and asthma incidence. The objective of the Cincinnati Childhood Allergy and Air Pollution Study (CCAAPS) is to determine if the development of allergic and respiratory disease is associated with exposure to diesel engine exhaust particles. A detaile...
Article
The intensive use of nano-sized titanium dioxide (TiO2) particles in many different applications necessitates studies on their risk assessment as there are still open questions on their safe handling and utilization. For reliable risk assessment, the interaction of TiO2 nanoparticles (NP) with biological systems ideally needs to be investigated usi...
Article
Mass-based dose parameters (for example, PM(2.5)) are most often used to characterize cookstove particulate matter emissions. Particle surface area deposition in the tracheobronchial (TB) and alveolar (A) regions of the human lung is also an important metric with respect to health effects, though very little research has investigated this dose para...
Article
Nanotechnology presents an attractive opportunity to address various challenges in air and water purification, energy, and other environment issues. Thus, the development of new nanoscale materials in low-cost scalable synthesis processes is important. Furthermore, the ability to independently manipulate the material properties as well as character...

Abstract Characterizing nanoparticle dispersions and understanding the effect of parameters that alter dispersion properties are important for both environmental applications and toxicity investigations. The role of particle surface area, primary particle size, and crystal phase on TiO2 nanoparticle dispersion properties is reported. Hydrodynamic s...
Article
Size distributions of nanoparticles in the vicinity of synthesis reactors will provide guidelines for safe operation and protection of workers. Nanoparticle concentrations and size distributions were measured in a research academic laboratory environment with two different types of gas-phase synthesis reactors under a variety of operating condition...
Conference Paper
Nanomaterials have unique chemical and physical properties compared to the larger counterparts because of their high specific surface area and quantum size effects. To safely apply nanotechnology in biology, medicine, food and cosmetic industries, it is necessary to understand nanoparticles' toxicity and develop remediation methods to safely remove...
Article
The toxicity of Cu-doped TiO(2) nanoparticles (NPs, 20nm), synthesized by a flame aerosol reactor, to Mycobacterium smegmatis and Shewanella oneidensis MR-1, is the primary focus of this study. Both doped and non-doped TiO(2) NPs (20nm) tended to agglomerate in the medium solution, and therefore did not penetrate into the cell and damage cellular s...
Article
U(VI) adsorption on aerosol-synthesized hematite particles ranging in size from 12 to 125 nm was studied to explore nanoscale size effects on uranium adsorption. Adsorption on 70 nm aqueous-synthesized particles was also investigated to examine the effect of the synthesis method on reactivity. Equilibrium adsorption was measured over pH 3-11 at two...
