  1. 1. Brominated flame retardants and perfluoroalkyl acids in Swedish indoor microenvironments Implications for human exposure

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Justina Björklund; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PBDEs; HBCD; PFOS; PFOA; indoor air; indoor dust; breast milk; human exposure; emission; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Humans are exposed to persistent organic pollutants (POPs) such as brominated flame retardants (BFRs, specifically polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD)) and perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs, specifically perfluoroalkane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)). They are used in consumer products found in cars, offices, homes and day care centers. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Division of Working Environment, Lunds Institute of Technology, S-221 00, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Håkan Tinnerberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi; exposure; biomonitoring; occupational; isophorone diisocyanate; hexamethylene diisocyanate; methylenediphenyl diisocyanate; toluene diisocyanate; amines; aminoisocyanates; polyurethane; isocyanates; Liquid chromatography; Environmental technology; mass spectrometry;

    Abstract : Isocyanates are used mainly for manufacturing of polyurethane (PUR) foams, lacquers, elastomers and glues. The production of PUR exceeds 2 million tonnes per year and is increasing. Occupational exposure to isocyanates are associated with respiratory disorders. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human Pheromones Psychological and Neurological Modulation of a Putative Human Pheromone

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan N. Lundström; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; Pheromones; Odor; Olfaction; Sensitivity; Psychophysiology; Attention; ERP; Mood; Androstadienone; Estratetraenol; Bimodal distribution; Speed of processing; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Abstract : The notion that humans have specialized chemicals used for communication between conspecifics, so-called pheromones, has attracted much attention and discussion. This thesis demonstrates in four separate studies that a human endogenous steroidal compound that is abundant in male sweat, androstadienone, affects women in several ways that differ to that of common odors.

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aerosol; human exposure study; exposure; emission; ultrafine particles; aerosol generation; aerosol characterization; candle; terpene; welding; CNT; indoor;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Ta ett djupt andetag och tänk på vad du nu har i lungorna! Jo, det är luft, förstås, syre kväve och sådant. Men det är också något annat. I varje kubikcentimeter du andas in finns tusentals partiklar, alla för små för att kunna ses med blotta ögat. Om dessa partiklar handlar denna avhandling. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human exposure to persistent organic pollutants Illustrated by four case studies in Europe

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för miljökemi

    Author : Jana Weiss; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Human exposure; Persistent organic pollutants POPs ; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi;

    Abstract : An extensive use of chemicals in countless consumer products has resulted in human exposure to several persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Sufficient knowledge about their chemical composition properties and environmental faith is required, to be able to proper risk assess and regulate the substances. READ MORE
