  1. 1. Novel Technique for Analysing Volatile Compounds in Indoor Dust Application of Gas Chromatography – UV Spectrometry to the Study of Building-Related Illness

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anders Nilsson; Christer Tagesson; Verner Lagesson; Göran Strid; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acrylates adverse effects; air pollution; ultraviolet; indoor analysis; chromatography; gas; environmental exposure adverse effects; sick building syndrome etiology; dust; volatilization; Spectrophotometry; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : It is now generally acknowledged that particulate air pollution can cause respiratory symptoms and that indoor dust particles may be associated with mucous membrane irritation and odour annoyance. One reason for this may be that dust particles adsorb large quantities of gases and other volatile compounds. READ MORE

  2. 2. Titan’s ionosphere and dust – as seen by a space weather station

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Oleg Shebanits; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Titan; Cassini; Ionosphere; Dusty plasma; Ion-ion plasma; Langmuir probe; aerosols; tholins; Space and Plasma Physics; Rymd- och plasmafysik;

    Abstract : Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, is the only known moon with a fully developed nitrogen-rich atmosphere, its ionosphere is detectable as high as 2200 km above its surface and hosts complex organic chemistry. Titan’s atmosphere and ionosphere has striking similarities to current theories of these regions around Earth 3.5 billion years ago. READ MORE

  3. 3. Indoor air quality and chemical emissions of organic compounds in newly built low-energy preschools

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Josefin Persson; Örebro universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Indoor air quality; volatile organic compounds; brominated flame retardants; organophosphate flame retardants; low-energy preschools; environmental certification; indoor dust; surface wipes;

    Abstract : In 2010, the European Union (EU) introduced the “Energy performance of Buildings” directive, which stipulates that all new buildings must reduce their energy consumption by constructing low-energy buildings. This could be achieved by constructing airtight and energy efficient envelopes with functional building materials such as age-resistant plastic films, insulation and different sealing products.

  4. 4. Organic dust from pig environment induces activation of human T cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Charlotte Müller-Suur; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Organic dust; T cells; NK cells; cytokines; cellular activation;

    Abstract : Farmers suffer more frequently from inflammatory airway disorders than the population in general and a ongoing airway inflammation has been shown also in symptomfree healthy farmers. Exposure in a swine confinement building causes an intense airway inflammation with recruitment of inflammatory cells, predominately neutrophils, in healthy, previously, non-exposed subjects.

  5. 5. Microorganisms in indoor environments. A search for health-related measurements

    University dissertation from Loay Wady, Dept. MMDI, Sölvegatan 23, 22362 lund

    Author : Loay Wady; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mykologi; virologi; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; bacteriology; virology; Microbiology; schools; microbial markers; MVOCs; building materials; dust; GC MSMS; SPME;

    Abstract : Microorganisms are ubiquitous in indoor air and epidemiological data suggest that inhalation of microbes and/or their products adhered on air–borne dust particles can impair well–being and health. In the present thesis microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs) and cellular markers were studied by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC/MS). READ MORE
