Nanoparticulate Nickel-Hosting Phases in Sulfidic Environments: Effects of Ferrous Iron and Bacterial Presence on Mineral Formation Mechanism and Solid-Phase Nickel Distribution
The precipitation of nickel with sulfide is an important process governing the bioavailability of Ni in natural waters, and this process has the potential to effectively remove aqueous Ni contaminants in near-surface ...
Abiotic synthesis of graphite in hydrothermal vents
Deciphering the origin, age, and composition of deep marine organic carbon remains a challenge in understanding the dynamics of the marine carbon cycle. In particular, the composition of aged organic carbon and what allows ...
Nanotechnology in the real world: Redeveloping the nanomaterial consumer products inventory
To document the marketing and distribution of nano-enabled products into the commercial marketplace, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies created the Nanotechnology ...
Nanoparticles in road dust from impervious urban surfaces: distribution, identification, and environmental implications
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-24)
Nanoparticles (NPs) resulting from urban road dust resuspension are an understudied class of pollutants in urban environments with strong potential for health hazards. The objective of this study was to investigate the ...
Pulmonary Exposure to Magnéli Phase Titanium Suboxides Results in Significant Macrophage Abnormalities and Decreased Lung Function
Coal is one of the most abundant and economic sources for global energy production. However, the burning of coal is widely recognized as a significant contributor to atmospheric particulate matter linked to deleterious ...
Discovery and ramifications of incidental Magnéli phase generation and release from industrial coal-burning
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01-12)
Coal, as one of the most economic and abundant energy sources, remains the leading fuel for producing electricity worldwide. Yet, burning coal produces more global warming CO2 relative to all other fossil fuels, and it is ...
