  • Ammonium, nitrate, and total nitrogen determination in fly ash

    Fly ash is a by-product of the combustion of pulverized coal and is composed of small particles. The composition of the fly ash may vary considerably, however, all fly ashes contain substantial amounts of silicon dioxide (SiO2), aluminum oxide (Al2O3) and calcium oxide (CaO). Nowadays, air pollution control standards require a separation of flue gas before being released to the atmosphere. Fly ...

  • Translating human right to water and sanitation into reality: a practical framework for analysis

    The human right to water and sanitation has been most commonly approached from the perspective of legal machinery and mechanisms for its implementation. Perhaps an underlying assumption among human rights practitioners is that once action for implementing the right is undertaken, its realization will be achieved. Often ignored are factors and processes at the micro-level where action for ...

  • Source contributions and spatiotemporal characteristics of PAHs in sediments: Using three‐way source apportionment approach

    PAHs were measured in sediments from 29 sites throughout Taihu Lake in China during two seasons, to investigate spatiotemporal characteristics and source contributions using three‐way source apportionment approach (PMF3). Seasonal and spatial variations of levels and toxicity suggested higher individual carcinogenic PAHs concentrations and toxic equivalent quantity (TEQ) in flooding season. ...

  • Large Volume Splitless Injection Using an Unmodified Split/Splitless Inlet and GC-TOFMS for Pesticides and Brominated Flame Retardants

    Abstract Large volume splitless injection for gas chromatography typically requires a special injection port, for example, a programmable temperature vaporizer (PTV), but an alternative setup using concurrent solvent recondensation–large volume splitless injection (CSR-LVSI) and a split/splitless injection port has been reported. This technique was used here, both with and without ...
