- Comparison of adsorption behavior of PCDD/Fs on carbon nanotubes and activated carbons in a bench-scale dioxin generating system. Zhou, Xujian; Li, Xiaodong; Xu, Shuaixi; Zhao, Xiyuan; Ni, Mingjiang; Cen, Kefa // Environmental Science & Pollution Research;Jul2015, Vol. 22 Issue 14, p10463
Porous carbon-based materials are commonly used to remove various organic and inorganic pollutants from gaseous and liquid effluents and products. In this study, the adsorption of dioxins on both activated carbons and multi-walled carbon nanotube was internally compared, via series of bench...
- UNTITLED. // Science & Spirit;Jan/Feb2005, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p17
This article presents information about various harmful chemicals. In August 2000, the Environmental Working Group tested the blood and urine of nine volunteers, searching for traces of harmful chemicals. Some of these contaminants are known to cause cancer, brain damage, and other ailments, and...

- Significant Issues Raised by Meta-analyses of Cancer Mortality and Dioxin Exposure. Starr, Thomas B. // Environmental Health Perspectives;Sep2003, Vol. 111 Issue 12, p1443
Presents views on issues about the potential human carcinogenicity of dioxin-like compounds. Emphasis on the selective use of different assumptions regarding the elimination of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) in humans; Impact of TCDD on cancer mortality.
- US Backing Away From Eliminating Dioxin. // Chemical Market Reporter;09/13/99, Vol. 256 Issue 11, p57
Charges that the United States government is backing away from action to eliminate dioxin.
- Prediction of n -octanol/water partition coefficients for polychlorinated dibenzo- p -dioxins using a general regression neural network. Zheng, G.; Huang, W. H.; Lu, X. H. // Analytical & Bioanalytical Chemistry;Jul2003, Vol. 376 Issue 5, p680
A general regression neural network was used for the first time to study quantitative structure and property relationships of organic pollutants to correlate and predict n -octanol/water partition coefficients of polychlorinated dibenzo- p -dioxins from their topological molecular descriptors....
- Oral and Dermal Exposure to 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-Dioxin (TCDD) Induces Cutaneous Papillomas and Squamous Cell Carcinomas in Female Hemizygous Tg.AC Transgenic Mice. Wyde, Michael E.; Braen, Angelique P. J. M.; Hejtmancik, Milton; Johnson, Jerry D.; Toft, John D.; Blake, James C.; Cooper, Stephen D.; Mahler, Joel; Vallant, Molly; Bucher, John R.; Walker, Nigel J. // Toxicological Sciences;Nov2004, Vol. 82 Issue 1, p34
Tg.AC mice develop epidermal papillomas in response to treatment with dermally applied nongenotoxic and complete carcinogens. The persistent environmental contaminant 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is a multi-site rodent carcinogen and tumor promoter that induces the formation of...
- Dioxin: a review of its environmental effects and its aryl hydrocarbon receptor biology. Mandal, Prabir K. // Journal of Comparative Physiology B: Biochemical, Systemic & Env;Jun2005, Vol. 175 Issue 4, p221
A highly persistent trace environmental contaminant and one of the most potent toxicants known is dioxin (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-para-dioxin or TCDD). TCDD induces a broad spectrum of biological responses, including induction of cytochrome P-450 1A1 (CYP1A1), disruption of normal hormone...
