  1. 1. Chemical reactions in ventilation systems : Ozonolysis of monoterpenes

    Author : Jerker Fick; Barbro Andersson; Charles Weschler; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental chemistry; Monoterpene; Ozone; OH Radical; Ozonolysis; Ventilation; Potassium Iodide; Experimental Design; Heat Exchanger; Miljökemi; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi;

    Abstract : Chemicals in indoor air, either emitted from a source or from a reaction, have been suggested to cause ill health in buildings. However, no clear correlations between exposure and health effects have been made. In this thesis we studied the reaction between monoterpenes, a group of biogenic unsaturated C10 hydrocarbons, and ozone. READ MORE

    Abstract : The chemical elicitor methyl jasmonate (MeJA) could replace insecticides in Europe and Asia for protection of young conifers against the pine weevil (Hylobius abietis). This thesis mainly focuses on the effects of MeJA treatment on chemical defenses of conifers from seedling batches with documented field resistance. READ MORE

  3. 3. Physical and Chemical Processes in the Formation of Biogenic secondary Organic Aerosols

    Author : Åsa M. Jonsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Tropospheric chemistry; monoterpenes; ozonolysis; secondary organic aerosol SOA ; G-FROST; AIDA; humidity; temperature; hydroxyl radicals; volatility; pinonaldehyde; climate and health;

    Abstract : Vegetation emits a vast number of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOC). In the atmosphere they are oxidised, predominantly by O3, OH radicals or NO3 radicals, depending e.g. on chemical structure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Chemical exposure in the work place : mental models of workers and experts

    Author : Anita Pettersson-Strömbäck; Bengt Järvholm; Steven Nordin; Bo Strangert; Marianne Törner; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : self-assessment of exposure; predictions; expert judgment; risk; interpretation; time series analysis; MAPE; benzene; monoterpenes; styrene; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Abstract : Many workers are daily exposed to chemical risks in their work place that has to be assessed and controlled. Due to exposure variability, repeated and random measurements should be conducted for valid estimates of the average exposure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Secondary Organic Aerosols: Composition, Gas-to-Particle Partitioning and Physical Properties

    Author : Anna Lutz; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : gas to particle conversion; volatility; secondary organic aerosols; FIGAERO; CIMS; monoterpenes; isoprene; SOA; BVOC;

    Abstract : Atmospheric aerosols influence our climate and air quality. Aerosol particles in the atmosphere are transformed through many different physical and chemical reactions. A substantial fraction of the particles in the atmosphere are of secondary origin, formed as a result of gas to particle conversion. READ MORE
