A prediction model for estimating the ecotoxicity of the water-accommodated fraction (WAF) and water-soluble fraction (WSF) of heavy crude oil is proposed. Iranian heavy crude oil (IHC), one of the major components of the Hebei Spirit oil spill in Korea in 2007, was used as a model crude oil for the preparation of the WAF and the WSF. Luminescence(More)
Recently, there are many researches to enable future ubiquitous environments based on wireless sensor network (WSN). Various sensing devices deployed in wireless sensor network collect meaningful data from physical environments and the data are delivered to neighbor node through radio interfaces for further processing. The representative application in WSN(More)
Wireless communication technology and state-of-the-art miniaturization have enabled the wireless sensor network with smart environmental sensors. The sensor network is a new field which has been vigorously researched in the ubiquitous computing and ad hoc network. How efficiently use the limited energy in this USN (ubiquitous sensor network) has been(More)
Due to high usage of tetracycline antibiotics, concerns have been raised about their environmental fate. In this study, potential changes in the pseudo-first-order hydrolysis rate constants for three tetracyclines, tetracycline (TC), oxytetracycline (OTC) and chlortetracycline (CTC), were evaluated by measuring the rate constants in batch and column(More)
Crude oil and refined petroleum products contain many polycyclic and heterocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, in particular, alkylated PAHs. Although alkylated PAHs are found in significantly higher quantities than their corresponding unsubstituted PAHs, the most studies on the physico-chemical properties and toxicities of these compounds have been conducted on(More)
Effects of individual petroleum hydrocarbons on the luminescence inhibition of Vibrio fischeri were evaluated according to a standard protocol to develop a quantitative structure-activity relationship and identify the apparent toxicity cutoff. Eighteen aromatic hydrocarbons, including benzene and its derivatives and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs),(More)
