The use of occupational cohort studies to assess the association of benzene and lymphoma is complicated by problems with exposure misclassification, outcome classification, and low statistical power. We performed meta-analyses of occupational cohort studies for five different lymphoma categories: Hodgkin...

Benzene causes acute myeloid leukemia and probably other hematological malignancies. As benzene also causes hematotoxicity even in workers exposed to levels below the US permissible occupational exposure limit of 1 part per million, further assessment of the health risks associated...

Abstract A framework of "Common Criteria" (i.e. a series of questions) has been developed to inform the use and evaluation of biomonitoring data in the context of human exposure and risk assessment. The data-rich chemical benzene was selected for use...

We have used Raman spectroscopy to study the molecular and electronic structures of the radical cations and dications of carbon-bridged oligo(para-phenylenevinylene)s (COPVn, n = 1-6) possessing consecutive fused pentagons and hexagons, up to 19, along with COPV derivatives having electron-donating...

GC Analysis of Xylene Isomers on SLB®-IL60

GC Analysis of Xylene Isomers on SLB®-IL60 - The cresol (methylphenol) isomers are also precursors to many chemicals. This chromatogram of a mix of aromatic and methylphenol compounds was generated using an SLB-IL60 ionic liquid column. Its interaction mechanisms allow the separation of all three xylene isomers, and all three cresol isomers.
