General description

1-Nitronaphthalene, belonging to the class of nitrated-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, is persistent in the environment. It is produced from direct sources such as diesel, gasoline exhaust and gas-phase reactions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) with oxides of nitrogen.

Airborne particulates were collected at a background site (Wajima Air Monitoring Station; WAMS) on the Noto Peninsula, Japan from January 2006 to December 2007. 1-, 2-nitropyrenes (1-, 2-NPs) and 2-nitrofluoranthene (2-NFR), in the particulates were determined with a sensitive HPLC...

Cytochrome P450 1a1 (Cyp1a1) is a phase I xenobiotic-metabolizing enzyme, the expression of which is mainly driven by the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR). Cyp1a1 messenger (m)RNA is labile. Our study indicates that 1-nitropyrene (1-NP) highly induced Cyp1a1 protein expression, although...

The formation of hydroxynitropyrene (OHNP) via a photochemical reaction of 1-nitropyrene (1-NP) was demonstrated using a UV irradiation system. The photoreaction of 1-NP in methanol gave products that were hydroxy-substituted at position 1 and mononitro-substituted at positions 2, 3, 5...

Diesel exhaust (DE) is a significant contributor to the toxicity associated with particulate matter (PM). 1-Nitropyrene (1-NP) has been used as a molecular marker for DE, and the urinary metabolites of 1-NP have been proposed as biomarkers for exposure to...

1-Nitropyrene (1NPy) is the most abundant nitropolycyclic aromatic contaminant encountered in diesel exhausts. Understanding its photochemistry is important because of its carcinogenic and mutagenic properties, and potential phototransformations into biologically active products. We have studied the photophysics and photochemistry of...
