Characterization of the airborne particulate matter (PM) emitted from cooking components including cooking oil, and additives like salt has not been carefully investigated. This study provides new data on the concentration, composition, and emission rates/fluxes of PM (less than 3.3 mu m) generated during heating corn oil and corn oil with added table salt. The concept of emission flux was employed to estimate the emission rates in this study. A statistically significant reduction of 47.6% (P < 0.05) in the total PM emission rate and emission flux were observed when salt was added to the heated corn oil (5.15x10(1) mg min(-l)) compared to the pure oil (9.83x10(1) mg min(-1)). The OC emission rate decreased 61.3% (P < 0.05) when salt was added to the corn oil (2.35x10(1) mg min(-1)) compared to the pure corn oil (5.83x10(1) mg min(-1)). With the salt, the total EC emission rate was 6.99x10(-1) mg min(-1), a 62.7% reduction in EC emission compared to pure corn oil (1.88 mg min(-1)). These results suggest that table salt can be added to the corn oil prior to frying to reduce exposure to cooking generated PM.


Urban CO exposure and its health effects on traffic policemen in Ankara
Atımtay, Aysel; Bagci, T; Demir, AU (Elsevier BV, 2000-03-01)
Carbonmonoxide (CO) is an important component of air pollution caused by traffic exhaust fumes. CO can cause chronic poisoning which shows its first symptoms as headaches, blurry vision, difficulty in concentration, and confusion. With the increasing number of vehicles in metropolitan areas of Turkey, the CO level has also increased in the city air as is the case in the capital city of Ankara, especially at certain locations. As far as the effects of CO on humans are concerned, traffic policemen are the pop...
Transformation pathways and fate of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in distinct interactive environmental compartments: A review
Abbas, Qumber; Yousaf, Balal; Amina, Amina; Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Munir, Mehr Ahmed Mujtaba; El-Naggar, Ali; Rinklebe, Joerg; Naushad, Mu (Elsevier BV, 2020-05-01)
The ever increasing production and use of nano-enabled commercial products release the massive amount of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in the environment. An increasing number of recent studies have shown the toxic effects of ENPs on different organisms, raising concerns over the nano-pollutants behavior and fate in the various environmental compartments. After the release of ENPs in the environment, ENPs interact with various components of the environment and undergoes dynamic transformation processes. T...
Composition of atmosphere at the Central Anatolia
Yörük, Ebru; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Department of Environmental Engineering (2004)
Concentrations of elements and ions measured in samples collected between February 1993 and December 2000 at a rural site in central Anatolia were investigated to evaluate the chemical composition of atmosphere at central Anatolia, to determine pollution level of the region, to study temporal variability of the pollutants and to investigate the sources and source regions of air pollutants in the region. Level of pollution at central Anatolia was found to be lower than the pollution level at other European c...
Biodegradation of 4-chlorophenol by acclimated and unacclimated activated sludge - Evaluation of biokinetic coefficients
ŞAHİNKAYA, ERKAN; Dilek, Filiz Bengü (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-01)
Unacclimated and acclimated activated sludges were examined for their ability to degrade 4-CP (4-chlorophenol) in the presence and absence of a readily growing substrate using aerobic batch reactors. The effects of 4-CP on the p (specific growth rate), COD removal efficiency, Y (yield coefficient), and q (specific substrate utilization rate) were investigated. It was observed that the toxicity of 4-CP on the culture decreased remarkably after acclimation. For example, the IC50 value on the basis of It was f...

In the present research, a "green" recipe was used to produce innovative phytogenic magnetic nanoparticles (PMNPs) from leaf extract of Fraxinus chinensis Roxb without employing any additional toxic surfactants as capping agents. The convenient reaction between metal salt solution and plant biomolecules occurred within a few minutes by color changes from pale green to intense black, hinting at the production of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs). The formation of PMNPs was verified by employing different techniq...
