AU - Ichinose, Takamichi. AU - Tasaka, Sadatomo. AU - Kiyono, Masako. AU - Takano, Hirohisa. PY - 2011/4. Y1 - 2011/4. N2 - Although adverse health effects of particulate matter with a diameter of ,100nm (nanoparticles) have been proposed, biological evidence supporting their promotion of the inflammatory lung response in vivo is limited. This study investigated the impact of pulmonary exposure to carbon black nanoparticles (CBNP) on emphysematous lung injury induced by porcine pancreatic elastase (PPE) in mice. Vehicle, two sizes (14 and 56nm) of CBNP (50μg/body: 4mg/kg), PPE (0.03U/body: 1U/kg) or PPE+CBNP was administered intratracheally; thereafter, parameters of inflammatory lung changes were evaluated at several time-points. CBNP of 14nm significantly induced acute lung inflammation in ...

N2 - Both acute and chronic exposure to particulates have been associated with increased mortality and morbidity from a number of causes, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other chronic lung diseases. The current study evaluated the hypothesis that ultrafine carbon particles, a component of ambient particulates, could affect tissue repair. To assess this, the three-dimensional collagen gel contraction model was used. Ultrafine carbon black particles, but not fine carbon black, inhibited fibroblast-mediated collagen gel contraction. Although previous research has indicated that inflammatory ...

The characteristics of soot particles in an exhaust gas for low temperature diesel combustion (LTC) compared with conventional combustion in a compression ignition engine were experimentally investigated by the elemental and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Morphology of soot particles was also studied by the transmission electron microscopy (TEM). From the result of the TGA, the water can be evaporated until about 150°C for both combustion regimes. The soot particles for LTC contained more volatile hydrocarbons, which can be easily evaporated from 200°C to 420°C compared with conventional diesel combustion. The soot oxidation for conventional combustion occurs up to 600°C, on the other hand the particles for LTC is oxidized below 520°C. Elemental analysis showed higher oxygen weight fraction resulted from the oxygenated hydrocarbon for the soot particles in LTC. TEM has shown primary particles to be in a diameter range of 20 to 50 nm for conventional diesel combustion. Soot aggregates for ...
Soot formation in a methane turbulent diffusion flame is simulated. Combustion is treated using steady flamelet model and a detailed chemistry. Turbulence is taken into account by k-ε model, with a round jet correction. Radiation heat transfer from flame is modeled by the P- 1 model. Soot distribution in the chamber is described by two parameters, i.e. soot number density and soot mass fraction. Two transport equations are solved for soot number density and soot mass fraction. Rates of soot particle nucleation and coagulation are included in the source term of soot number density equation, while soot particle nucleation, particle surface growth and soot oxidation contribute to the source term of soot mass fraction equation. Radial and axial profiles of temperature, species and soot distribution are generated and compared with experimental measurements. There is a good agreement between results of numerical simulation and experimental measurements. Radiation heat transfer from gas phase showed ...
This work investigates how morphology and nano-structure of the soot particles produced in a diesel spray flame evolve due to the rise in the temperature/pressure caused by the piston motion. The soot particles were sampled from the exhaust line of a diesel engine and were compared to the soot particles directly sampled from the spray flame of the same injector, in a constant volume chamber. Analysis of the high resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM) images acquired from the soot samples at two axial locations in the spray flame shows that the soot aggregates grow in size, become longer, more fractal and attain lower surface to volume ratio along the spray axis. However, the soot particles produced in the spray flame become smaller, shorter, less fractal, more compact and attain higher surface to volume ratio when emitted from the engine. This is discussed to be due to the increase in the oxidation rate by temperature rise caused by piston motion, and the consequent oxidation ...
Exposure to indoor air pollution (IAP) from the combustion of biomass fuels is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in developing countries. In the work discussed in this paper we evaluated the endocrine activity of soot particles from biomass fuels by using yeast bioassay. These pollutants could have beta-galactosidase activity with a relative potency (RP) about 10(-7)-10(-9) that of estradiol. Soot particles from wood and straw combustion only partially induced beta-galactosidase activity whereas others produced fully inductive activity in the yeast assay system. These pollutants did not have estrogen antagonist and progesterone agonist activity within the defined concentration range. However, these pollutants require 2-4 orders of magnitude higher IC50 to inhibit the activity of progesterone in a similar dose-response manner to mifepristone. We therefore propose that the endocrine activity of some environmental pollutants may be because of inhibition of the progesterone receptor ...
Supporting the hypothesis that a reduced surface area reduces the biological effects of CBNP [1, 10, 67], the coating of P90 with BaP prevented the P90-induced increase of the neutrophil attracting cytokine IL8 mRNA in A549 cells. As the high surface area of P90 is strongly associated with induction of oxidative stress, the reduced biological effect can be explained by the reduced ROS release that we observed with P90-BaP and P90-9NA in A549 cells compared to uncoated P90. This reduced biological effect is also supported by our observation that P90, and not P90-BaP, led to a transient increase in granulocyte influx in the in vivo experiment. This transient increase in granulocytes without changes of total cell number has previously been observed [68, 69]. The mechanism for the reduced number of macrophages is not known and would be an interesting area for future research. However, these results clearly demonstrate that surface area can be an important factor of CBNP effects in biological ...
Laser-induced-incandescence (LII) signal decays are measured in sooting premixed atmospheric and low-pressure flames. Soot particle temperatures are obtained from LII signals measured at two wavelengths. Soot particle size distributions P(r) and flame temperatures T are measured spatially resolved by independent techniques. Heat and mass transfer kinetics of the LII process are determined from measured soot particle temperatures, flame temperatures, and particle sizes. Uncertainties of current LII models are attributed to processes during the absorption of the laser pulse. Implications for LII experiments are made in order to obtain primary soot particle sizes. Soot particle size distributions and flame temperatures are assessed from measured particle temperature decays by use of multi-D nonlinear regression.. © 2003 Optical Society of America.

Abstract. Particulate matter (PM) emissions were measured in July 2010 from on-road motor vehicles driving through a highway tunnel in the San Francisco Bay area. A soot particle aerosol mass spectrometer (SP-AMS) was used to measure the chemical composition of PM emitted by gasoline and diesel vehicles at high time resolution. Organic aerosol (OA) and black carbon (BC) concentrations were measured during various time periods that had different levels of diesel influence, as well as directly in the exhaust plumes of individual heavy-duty (HD) diesel trucks. BC emission factor distributions for HD trucks were more skewed than OA distributions (N = 293), with the highest 10% of trucks accounting for 56 and 42% of total measured BC and OA emissions, respectively. OA mass spectra measured for HD truck exhaust plumes show cycloalkanes are predominate in exhaust OA emissions relative to saturated alkanes (i.e., normal and iso-paraffins), suggesting that lubricating oil rather than fuel is the dominant ...

In understanding the global carbon cycle, "black carbon" - decay-resistant carbon molecules altered by exposure to fire or combustion - has long been presumed to originate on land and work its way to the ocean via rivers and streams. An unexpected finding published today in Nature Communications challenges that long-held assumption and introduces a tantalizing new mystery: If oceanic black carbon is significantly different from the black carbon found in rivers, where did it come from? "The signature of oceanic dissolved black carbon is very different from that of riverine dissolved black carbon, raising a host of fundamental questions," said Sasha Wagner, a Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute assistant professor of earth and environmental sciences and lead author of the research. "Are there other sources of dissolved black carbon? Is it being degraded away in rivers, sequestered in sediments, or altered beyond recognition before it reaches the open ocean? Is what weve measured actually ...
Dr. George Jakab and associates the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health examined the effects of inhaled formaldehyde, an airway irritant that is part of motor vehicle emissions, on alveolar macrophages. The investigators exposed mice to varying levels of formaldehyde alone or to formaldehyde mixed with carbon black particles. Carbon black particles were chosen because of their similarity to combustion derived particles. Different alveolar macrophage functions were evaluated using two assays.
BC has gained attention as a product and marker of combustion-related anthropogenic air pollution, often showing independent health associations distinct from those induced by background ambient PM2.5.13 Our results demonstrate an effect of anthropogenic combustion-related air pollution (BC) on ABP and HRV in patients with metabolic syndrome in Beijing, a city continually facing extreme levels of air pollutants.. Although previous associations between exposures to ambient air pollutants and BP have been reported, these generally have been observed to occur in response to concentrations that are several folds lower.4 It is not clear whether adverse cardiovascular actions of air pollutants persist at the markedly higher levels encountered in Asia. Furthermore, few studies have evaluated the effects of air pollutants in patients with metabolic syndrome, a population at risk for development of type II diabetes mellitus, and hypertension. Previous findings suggest that obese individuals and those ...

Historical reconstruction of atmospheric black carbon (BC, in the form of char and soot) is still constrained for inland areas. Here we determined and compared the past 150-yr records of BC and polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) in sediments from two representative lakes, Huguangyan (HGY) and Chaohu (CH), in eastern China. HGY only receives atmospheric deposition while CH is influenced by riverine input. BC, char, and soot have similar vertical concentration profiles as PACs in both lakes. Abrupt increases in concentrations and mass accumulation rates (MARs) of soot have mainly occurred since ~1950, the establishment of the Peoples Republic of China, when energy usage changed to more fossil fuel contributions reflected by the variations in the concentration ratios of char/soot and individual PACs. In HGY, soot MARs increased by ~7.7 times in the period 1980-2012 relative to the period 1850-1950. Similar increases (~6.7 times) were observed in CH. The increase in soot MARs is also in line with ...

Evidence is presented concerning the effect of surfaces on the segmental motion of PEO-based polymer electrolytes in lithium batteries. For dry systems with no moisture the effect of surfaces of nanoparticle fillers is to inhibit the segmental motion and to reduce the lithium ion transport. These effects also occur at the surfaces in composite electrodes that contain considerable quantities of carbon black nanoparticles for electronic connection. The problem of reduced polymer mobility is compounded by the generation of salt concentration gradients within the composite electrode. Highly concentrated polymer electrolytes have reduced transport properties due to the increased ionic cross-linking. Combined with the interfacial interactions this leads to the generation of low mobility electrolyte layers within the electrode and to loss of capacity and power capability. It is shown that even with planar lithium metal electrodes the concentration gradients can significantly impact the interfacial ...
An electron microscope image shows carbon black nanoparticles modified by adding polyvinyl alcohol for downhole detection of hydrogen sulfide in oil and gas wells. The nanoreporters were created at Rice University. (Credit: Tour Group/Rice University). Scientists at Rice University have created a nanoscale detector that checks for and reports on the presence of hydrogen sulfide in crude oil and natural gas while theyre still in the ground. The nanoreporter is based on nanometer-sized carbon material developed by a consortium of Rice labs led by chemist James Tour. Limited exposure to hydrogen sulfide causes sore throats, shortness of breath and dizziness, according to the researchers. The human nose quickly becomes desensitized to hydrogen sulfide, leading to an inability to detect higher concentrations. That can be fatal, they said. On the flip side, hydrogen sulfide is also a biologically important signaling molecule in processes that include pain and inflammation. Tour said chemists have ...
An analysis of radiative absorption and scattering by clusters of spheres in the Rayleigh limit is developed with an electrostatics analysis. This approach assumes that the largest dimension of the cluster is significantly smaller than the wavelength of the radiation. The electric field that is incident upon and scattered by the cluster can then be represented by the gradient of a potential that in turn satisfies Laplaces equation. An analytical solution for the potential that exactly satisfies the boundary conditions at the surfaces of the spheres is obtained with a coupled spherical harmonics method. The components of the polarizability tensor and the absorption, scattering, and depolarization factors are obtained from the solution. Calculations are performed on fractallike clusters of spheres, with refractive-index values that are characteristic of carbonaceous soot in the visible and the IR wavelengths. Results indicate that the absorption cross sections of fractal soot clusters can be ...
Synthetic Diesel-like soots were prepared according to a methodology reported in the literature, and their physico-chemical characteristics and properties determined as a function of the operating parameters. These Diesel-like soots were synthesized following a two stage process where carbon-black oil mixtures were firstly oxidized at 400 °C in a tubular furnace and the resulting solid was next oxidized between 75°C and 175 °C. The products obtained after the removal of residual oil were characterized morphologically, via elemental analysis, solid state 13C-NMR, XPS and rheologically. Results were compared with those achieved from the characterization of a "reference" soot sample extracted from an oil recovered after an XUD11 engine test. Synthetic soots have chemico-physical characteristics that are different than those of the precursor carbon black and that can be controlled changing the operative conditions of the second step of the synthesis. Soot produced at 75°C shows repeatable ...

A paper just published by the American Geophysical Union has elevated the role of soot - "black carbon" in the science - to a new high in terms of its climate influence.. According to the new study, soot is a stronger influencer of the global climate than methane. While the study doesnt downplay the dominant role of carbon dioxide as the main greenhouse gas, its seen by some commentators as offering a more immediate climate response - cutting black carbon in a shorter timeframe while the world ponders its response to the CO2 problem.. The study, Bounding the role of black carbon in the climate system: A scientific assessment is published in the Journal of Geophysical Research - Atmospheres (abstract here).. Billed as the first quantitative and comprehensive analysis of the climate impact of soot, the study suggests its warming impact could be as much as 1.1 W/m2 on a global basis. Thats around two-thirds of the warming impact of CO2 - and twice the warming estimate previously attributed to ...
Dr. Chris Sorensen (Kansas State). Soot, the by-product of combustion, that smoky, black stuff from chimneys, power plants and the inside of the tail pipe of my roadster, what scientist would ever bother to study soot? As a "particle physicist", thats what I do, and I find that soot has mysteries and beauties that can entertain any curiosity. In this talk I will describe some of my researches into soot and other aggregate structures; an unlikely journey of discovery to find fractal structures with non-Euclidian dimensionality, gel networks that tenuously span space and common Fibonacci themes between spirals, sunflowers and soot.. ...
We continue to debate about bringing any of our hens with us on our voyage west. I think weve decided that Belina is coming with us. Belina is our big, puffy, personable Buff Orpington who is the subject of a childrens book im writing. Shes just too sweet and too easily harassed to be left behind. Shes also the reason Soot was the first to go. Soot was our favorite pullet: beautiful, full of things to say (she makes the sweetest little sounds) and an excellent layer. Shes also what we liked to call "the enforcer." Shes in charge of alerting about danger, and ruling hte roost. Poor Belina was looking really great while Soot was molting and feeling like poo - and as soon as she was back to feeling herself, Belina was back to having bloody comb at most times and constantly chased about. Soot is a great hen, and shell be great for our friend Robin who has 6 other hens that will be sure to put "Queen Soot" in her place ...
Particulate pollution thought to be holding climate change in check by reflecting sunlight instead enhances warming when combined with airborne soot. An instrument that measures the chemical composition and optical properties of aerosols in real time has revealed that fresh soot quickly becomes coated with a spherical shell of other chemicals, such as sulfate and nitrate through light-driven chemical reactions. This lens-like shell enhances absorption of light by a factor of 1.6 over pure soot particles.
Removing all the soot. Thats the most crucial and most challenging task facing crews cleaning up the fire damage at Swiftwater Elementary Center this week, experts say.
The principle behind carbon paper is simple, yet producing it is difficult. A modern manufacturer of carbon paper tests all incoming raw materials for quality. A large number of tests can be applied to carbon black, including those for pigments and sulfur content. The carbon black selected should also be of fine particle size, which is determined by measuring the average diameter of a carbon black particle with an electron microscope. In addition, it should have low oil absorption, and the absorbency and pH of the carbon black are tested prior to use. The inks are tested for fineness of grain, which affects the final smoothness of the coating. The wax binder should penetrate only slightly into the paper and have the proper viscosity. To ensure proper lettering, the amount of wax released under pressure is tested. The paper itself should be smooth, nonporous, and free of surface defects. Although it must be a thin tissue, it should also be strong and dense. The finished carbon paper must be free ...
A carbon black process control system measures input variables such as feedstock flow rate, feedstock quality, air flow rate, air humidity, air temperature, fuel flow rate, fuel quality, and/or potassium additive solution flow rate at spaced intervals while the carbon black reactor is operating. Then, at spaced intervals in time one or more output variables of the carbon black, such as iodine number and/or DBP, are predicted in accordance with a prediction algorithm based on the values of the measured input variables. Then, at spaced intervals in time the predicted values of the output variables, such as iodine number and/or DBP, are averaged. Based on the average values of the predicted output variables, one or more input variables are then adjusted to achieve goal values of the predicted output variables, and thus obtain carbon black of substantially consistent quality. The predicted output variables are also laboratory measured from samples of the carbon black produced at spaced intervals in time

More than three-quarters of the particulate pollution known as black carbon transported at high altitudes over the West Coast during spring is from Asian sources, according to a research team led by Professor V. Ramanathan at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego.. Though the transported black carbon, most of which is soot, is an extremely small component of air pollution at land surface levels, the phenomenon has a significant heating effect on the atmosphere at altitudes above two kilometers (6,562 feet). As the soot heats the atmosphere, however, it also dims the surface of the ocean by absorbing solar radiation, said Ramanathan, a climate scientist at Scripps, and Odelle Hadley, a graduate student at the Center for Atmospheric Sciences at Scripps. The two are lead authors of a research paper appearing in the March 14 issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research. The dual effect carries consequences for the Pacific Ocean region that drives much of Earths climate.. "Thats the ...
Until now, scientists have had to assume how soot is mixed with other chemical species in individual particles and estimate how that ultimately impacts their warming potential," said Kimberly Prather, professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. "Our measurements show that soot is most commonly mixed with other chemicals such as sulfate and this mixing happens very quickly in the atmosphere. These are the first direct measurements of the optical properties of atmospheric soot and allow us to better understand the role of soot in climate change ...
Soot samples were extracted from a swirl-stabilized, liquid-fuel fired laboratory combustor to (i) assess the validity of the ASTM smoke point test in predicting the sooting characteristics of fuels in complex combustion systems and (ii) assess the effect of fuel molecular structure and smoke suppressant additives on the physical and chemical properties of soot. Fuels utilized were shale JP-8, iso-octane, and blends of iso-octane with either decalin, toluene, tetralin, or 1-methylnaphthalene such that smoke points similar to JP-8 were achieved. Each fuel was separately blended with 0.05 percent (by weight) ferrocene smoke suppressant. The results indicate that the ASTM test can be misleading, increased fuel molecular complexity increases soot content of higher molecular weight polycyclic aromatics, and ferrocene additive reduces small particle number density but not necessarily the soot mass loading.. ...
Posted on 01/15/2012 6:49:52 AM PST by upchuck. An international team of scientists says its figured out how to slow global warming in the short run and prevent millions of deaths from dirty air: Stop focusing so much on carbon dioxide. They say the key is to reduce emissions of two powerful and fast-acting causes of global warming methane and soot. Carbon dioxide is the chief greenhouse gas and the one world leaders have spent the most time talking about controlling. Scientists say carbon dioxide from fossil fuels like coal and oil is a bigger overall cause of global warming, but reducing methane and soot offers quicker fixes. Soot also is a big health problem, so dramatically cutting it with existing technology would save between 700,000 and 4.7 million lives each year, according to the teams research published online Thursday in the journal Science. Since soot causes rainfall patterns to shift, reducing it would cut down on droughts in southern Europe and parts of Africa and ease monsoon ...

One of the components of diesel exhaust (DE) is DPM which includes soot particles made up primarily of carbon and other solid particles made up of ash, metallic abrasion particles, sulfates and silicates. Diesel soot particles have a solid core consisting of elemental carbon, and are usually less than 1 micron in size, they have other substances attached to the surface, including organic carbon compounds.. Nearly all DPM is respirable in size and can be deposited deep in the lungs. The adverse health effects from DPM exposure include eye and respiratory irritation up to lung cancer if exposure is to high concentrations over a prolonged period of time.. High DPM concentrations can occur in confined areas or underground mines and may depend on the age of the equipment, the type of diesel engine and/or engine maintenance. The only way to determine the level of exposure experienced by workers is to measure personal exposure.. There is no current Worksafe Australia Occupational exposure standard for ...
In the recent years diesel engine developers and manufacturers achieved a great progress in reducing the most important diesel engine pollutants, NOX and particulates. But nevertheless big efforts in diesel engine development are necessary to meet with the more stringent future emission regulations. To improve the knowledge about particle formation and emission an insight in the cylinder is necessary. By using the fast gas sampling technique samples from the cylinder were taken as a function of crank angle and analyzed regarding the soot particle size distribution and the particle mass. The particle size distribution was measured by a conventional SMPS. Under steady state conditions the influence of aromatic and oxygen content in the fuel on in-cylinder particle size distribution and particle mass inside a modern 4V-CR-DI-diesel-engine were determined. After injection and ignition, mainly small soot particles were formed which grow and in the later combustion phase coagulate ...
We discuss the major mass spectral features of different types of refractory carbonaceous particles, ionized after laser vaporization with an Aerodyne high-resolution soot-particle aerosol mass spectrometer (SP-AMS). The SP-AMS was operated with a switchable 1064 nm laser and a 600 C thermal vaporizer, yielding respective measurements of the refractory and non-refractory particle components. Six samples were investigated, all of which were composed primarily of refractory material: fuel-rich and fuel-lean propane/air diffusion-flame combustion particles; graphite-spark-generated particles; a commercial fullerene-enriched soot; Regal Black, a commercial carbon black; and nascent aircraft-turbine combustion particles. All samples exhibited a spectrum of carbon-cluster ions Cx n+ in their refractory mass spectrum. Smaller clusters (x Mass spectrometry of refractory black carbon particles from six sources: carbon-cluster and oxygenated ions=10.5194/acp-14-2591-2014=lt; 6) were found to dominate the ...

The yellow flame is actually an aerosol of black particles heated to temperatures around 1000-1500 Celsium. Depending on temperature, they can emit deep red, orange, yellow and almost white light. So, for yellow flame to occur, black particles must be present. In case of carbon containing fuels the particles are usually carbon particles (soot). Soot is a product of incomplete combustion of carbon containing molecules. Now, lets see the difference between ethanol and methanol, specifically, at amount of oxygen required for combustion of same volume of vapors. Equations of burning:. $\ce{2CH3OH + 3O2 = 2CO2 + 4H2O}$ $\ce{C2H5OH + 3O2 = 2CO2 + 3H2O}$. As it can be seen, same volume of vapors in case of ethanol requires twice as much of air to fully burn, so in case of ethanol incomplete combustion is more common. It is even more common in case of larger molecules, say, higher hydrocarbons, like solid paraffines used in some candles. In case the flame of organic substance has right amount of ...

New research has recorded high levels of airborne aerosol black carbon (BC) in Lithuania during two periods in 2008 and 2009. Further investigation indicated this is from smoke produced by wildfires in Ukraine and southwest Russia, which then travels northwards. Aerosol black carbon is small particles suspended in the atmosphere that are produced through incomplete combustion of fossil fuels, biofuel and biomass. Long-term exposure to BC can contribute to respiratory health problems....
Produced during combustion of fossil fuels and biofuels, light-absorbing carbon (soot) creates haze and absorbs light with an efficiency nearly one third that of carbon dioxide. This is particularly hazardous for places such as the Arctic, where the presence of soot can drastically increase the amount of light absorbed by snow and ice surfaces. To learn more about sources of soot, Lack et al. (2008) studied emissions from commercial shipping, which is expected to increase by 2-6% each year. Using data taken from a survey in the Gulf of Mexico, the authors found that the highest soot emitters (per unit fuel combusted) were tugboats. Their study revealed as well that emissions of soot from cargo and noncargo vessels were double the most recent estimates and also independent of engine load. In total, the authors found that soot emitted by the shipping industry contributes to about 2% of the total soot present in the atmosphere. Though relatively small, this 2% can increase soot burdens in coastal ...
