SIMPOL.1: a simple group contribution method for predicting vapor pressures and enthalpies of vaporization of multifunctional organic compounds
The SIMPOL.1 group contribution method is developed for predicting the liquid vapor pressure p o L (atm) and enthalpy of vaporization Δ H vap (kJ mol -1 ) of organic compounds as functions of
Organic atmospheric particulate material.
TLDR
The theory of secondary organic PM formation is outlined, including the role of water, which is ubiquitous in the atmosphere, which relates how much PM is produced when a certain amount of a parent gaseous organic is oxidized.
Formation of carcinogens indoors by surface-mediated reactions of nicotine with nitrous acid, leading to potential thirdhand smoke hazards
TLDR
It is shown that residual nicotine from tobacco smoke sorbed to indoor surfaces reacts with ambient nitrous acid (HONO) to form carcinogenic tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs), which represents an unappreciated health hazard through dermal exposure, dust inhalation, and ingestion.
Hidden formaldehyde in e-cigarette aerosols.
TLDR
A chemical analysis of vapor from electronic cigarettes shows high levels of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and the authors project that the associated incremental lifetime risk of cancer could be higher than that from long-term smoking.
Thirdhand Tobacco Smoke: Emerging Evidence and Arguments for a Multidisciplinary Research Agenda
TLDR
The existing evidence on thirdhand smoke (THS) provides strong support for pursuing a programmatic research agenda to close gaps in current understanding of the chemistry, exposure, toxicology, and health effects of THS, as well as its behavioral, economic, and sociocultural considerations and consequences.
