The inevitable incline in the daily exposure to various chemicals has raised a necessity to monitor the body's exposure and biological responses to these stimuli more comprehensively and easily; conceivably, integrating novel designs, extractive phases, and state-of-the-art instrumentation with the primary aim of taking the chemical snapshot of the system. Wearable extractive devices are promising tools that are present in the analytical toolbox and address the abovementioned needs. These devices consist of a particular class of samplers that an individual can wear without limiting her/his daily life activities. In addition to being wearable, these devices show the ability to preconcentrate the analytes in an extractive phase while integrating the sampling and sample preparation. In addition to being imperative for per-sonal exposure investigations, applications in diagnostic and prognostic health monitoring are among their emerging applications. Besides, in vivo soft samplers based on microextraction techniques provide non-invasive to low invasive approaches for non-lethal monitoring of various biosystems. Although in these applications they are not used in an 'obvious way' as wearable devices as they are not placed directly on the subject's skin and are instead immersed under the skin, in the scope of this review they will still be considered to provide a picture for future directions of extractive wearable devices. This review aims to cover the wearable extractive devices used in exposure studies (with a special focus on the last two years), in vivo, and in situ applications (with a focus on the last five years) where reliable information about the system is under interest.(c) 2022 Elsevier B.V.

Advancements in non-invasive biological surface sampling and emerging applications
Nalbant, Atakan Arda; Boyacı, Ezel (2019-12-01)
Biological surfaces such as skin and ocular surface provide a plethora of information about the underlying biological activity of living organisms. However, they pose unique problems arising from their innate complexity, constant exposure of the surface to the surrounding elements, and the general requirement of any sampling method to be as minimally invasive as possible. Therefore, it is challenging but also rewarding to develop novel analytical tools that are suitable for in vivo and in situ sampling from...
Temporal variation of volatile organic compound concentrations in Bursa atmosphere
Yurdakul, Sema; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Department of Environmental Engineering (2014)
Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) attracted attention as air pollutants due to their health effects, particularly with their potential to induce cancer. The levels and sources of VOCs in Bursa atmosphere, which is one of the most heavily industrialize cities in Turkey, were investigated by measuring C2 – C12 VOCs in two campaigns. Concentrations of 148 VOCs were measured with 60 minute intervals using an on-line gas chromatograph. Data generated in this study is the first extensive and high-resolution data...
An Environmental philosophical analysis of ecosystem health
Saraç, Yüksel; Sol, Ayhan; Department of Philosophy (2019)
The aim of this study is to qualify the notion of ecosystem health by taking the origin of the 'health' concept into consideration and discuss how to find solutions to some environmental problems, arising from the combination of the individual terms of ‘ecosystem health’. With this intention, I evaluate the ethical theories of leading environmental philosophers about ecosystem health through an analytical inquiry.
Rapid classification of heavy metal-exposed freshwater bacteria by infrared spectroscopy coupled with chemometrics using supervised method
Gurbanov, Rafig; Gözen, Ayşe Gül; Severcan, Feride (Elsevier BV, 2018-1)
Rapid, cost-effective, sensitive and accurate methodologies to classify bacteria are still in the process of development. The major drawbacks of standard microbiological, molecular and immunological techniques call for the possible usage of infrared (IR) spectroscopy based supervised chemometric techniques. Previous applications of IR based chemometric methods have demonstrated outstanding findings in the classification of bacteria. Therefore, we have exploited an IR spectroscopy based chemometrics using su...
Review of factors impacting emission/concentration of cooking generated particulate matter
Torkmahalleh, Mehdi Amouei; Gorjinezhad, Soudabeh; Unluevcek, Hediye Sumru; Hopke, Philip K. (2017-05-15)
Studies have shown that exposure to particulate matter (PM) emitted while cooking is related to adverse human health effects. The level of PM emissions during cooking varies with several factors. This study reviewed controlled studies available in the cooking PM emissions literature, and found that cooking method, type and quality of the energy (heating) source, burner size, cooking pan, cooking oil, food, additives, source surface area, cooking temperature, ventilation and position of the cooking pan on th...
