  • The Smell of Old Books Could Help Preserve Them

    Old books give off a complex mélange of odors, ranging from pleasant (almonds, caramel and chocolate) to nasty (formaldehyde, old clothes and trash). Detecting early signs of paper degradation could help guide preservation efforts, but most techniques destroy the very paper historians want to save. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Sensors have developed an electronic nose that ...

  • Glutaraldehyde and Formaldehyde – Health Hazards in Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities

    Glutaraldehyde and Formaldehyde Glutaraldehyde is very similar to formaldehyde in its structure and uses in the healthcare industry.

  • What is a volatile organic compound (VOC)?

    Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) include a wide range of both natural and synthetic substances. VOCs are chemical compounds – mixtures of more than one element – where one of the elements is carbon. They are described as volatile because they evaporate easily, releasing molecules into the atmosphere. VOCs ...

  • The danger of formaldehyde on the health of professionals

    Formaldehyde, more commonly known as formalin, is an aqueous solution present as a colorless gas with a pungent odor. This gas was considered a carcinogen of category 1 and was added to the list of carcinogenic substances in the order of 5 January 1993. Indeed the danger of formaldehyde is an element to take more and more seriously in the indoor air. It is ubiquitous in both home and business ...

  • Formaldehyde – Protecting Hospital Workers

    Formaldehyde health and safety is vital since the chemical has many uses in the healthcare industry, not just preserving bodies in the morgue. Formaldehyde is used as a disinfectant as well as a tissue preservative. As a tissue preservative, it can be found in histology labs where tissues are sectioned and prepared for microscopic analysis. Of course, autopsies can also subject the examiner and ...

  • Formaldehyde exposure in the workplace – How do you know if it’s harming you?

    There are both short term and long term exposure hazards from formaldehyde. The primary problem is inhalation of the chemical but it is also known to cause skin irritation and allergic reactions. EPA has now listed formaldehyde as a suspect human carcinogen. Animal studies have shown an increase in nasal cell cancer and some limited human studies have shown an increased incidence of nasal and ...

  • Analysis of formaldehyde in indoor air

  • What is the difference between a REL and a PEL?

    There is often confusion between exposure limits put out by different agencies even within the same administration. For example, here the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) establishes Recommended Exposure Limits (RELs) whereas the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issues Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs). Realizing the difference between the two is ...
