Ecotoxicology and environmental safety
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) such as naphthalene (Nap) and phenanthrene (Phe) are organic pollutants of concern owing to their toxicity, carcinogenicity, and teratogenicity. Biodegradation is considered the most economical and efficient process to remediate Nap and Phe. The riparian zone between a river and a riparian aquifer, which is r...

Two naphthalene-containing compounds, 4-hydroxy-6,7-dimethoxy-1-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)-2-naphthoic acid (A) and 4-hydroxy-6,7-dimethoxy-1-phenyl-2-naphthoic acid (B), were prepared by several steps. Their bindings to human serum albumin (HSA) were studied by ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) absorption, fluorescence, synchronous fluorescence, three...

This cross-sectional study determined whether acute sensory irritative or (sub)chronic inflammatory effects of the eyes, nose or respiratory tract are observed in employees who are exposed to naphthalene at the workplace. Thirtynine healthy and non-smoking male employees with either moderate (n = 22) or high (n = 17) exposure to naphthalene were co...

In this study, biochar was generated from chicken manure by using a tube furnace under different temperatures (300, 500, and 700 °C), and the treatments were noted as J300, J500, and J700, respectively. In comparison, another type of biochar was prepared under 500 °C with a muffle furnace, and the treatment was noted as JM500. Biochar in treatment ...

We have developed a hybrid machine learning (ML) model for the prediction and optimization of a gliding arc plasma tar reforming process using naphthalene as a model tar compound from biomass gasification. A linear combination of three well-known algorithms, including artificial neural network (ANN), support vector regression (SVR) and decision tre...
Naphthalene is an aromatic hydrocarbon used as room freshner. Therefore, it is of interest to document the computer aided pharmacokinetic profiling and toxicity analysis data of naphthalene.

Candida infections pose a serious public health threat due to increasing drug resistance. Azoles are first-line antifungal drugs for fungal infections. In this study, we tested an in-house azole collection incorporating naphthalene ring to find hits against planktonic and biofilm forms of resistant Candida spp. In the collection, potent derivatives...

While creosote components have very low water solubility, concerns have been raised about potential environmental effects and stimulated research to minimize migration. Best management practices have been developed but there are few data quantifying their effects. The effects of post-treatment steaming on migration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbo...

In this work, an inexpensive, fast, and selective ionic liquid modified graphene oxide (GO-IL) was synthesized and electrochemically deposited on the inner surface of a stainless-steel tube. Then, it was applied for circulated headspace in-tube solid-phase microextraction (CHS-IT-SPME) of naphthalene from honey samples. Next, the coated tube was re...
