The full (1)H and (13)C NMR chemical shift assignment of 2α-methyl-17α(H),21β(H)-hopane is presented. This compound is formed in mature sediments from biogenic sources of 2β-methyl-17β(H),21β(H)-hopanoids, which include several cyanobacteria. In addition, full (1)H and (13)C NMR chemical shift data of...

Evidence is needed regarding the air pollutant components and their sources responsible for associations between particle mass concentrations and human cardiovascular outcomes. We previously found associations between circulating biomarkers of inflammation and mass concentrations of quasi-ultrafine particles <or= 0.25 microm...
