We explored the effects of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) of nucleotide excision repair (NER) genes on DNA damage caused by exposure to carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in 475 Chinese workers. We quantified urinary 1-hydroxypyrene using high-performance liquid chromatography, and the DNA damage level of lymphocytes was examined by(More)
Sulphur doping effects on the crystal structures, thermoelectric properties, density-of-states, and effective mass in Cu1.98SxSe1-x were studied based on the electrical and thermal transport property measurements, and first-principles calculations. The X-ray diffraction patterns and Rietveld refinements indicate that room temperature Cu1.98SxSe1-x (x = 0,(More)
Simultaneously optimizing electrical and thermal transport properties of bulk thermoelectric materials remains a key challenge due to the conflicting combination of material traits. Here, we have explored the electrical and thermal transport features of In-filled CoSb3 through X-ray absorption fine structure, X-ray photoemission spectra, transport(More)
OBJECTIVE Workplace aerosol sampling is challenged by its influencing factors and methodological limitations. Some factors, including blank setting, electrostatic effect, sample mass gain, and limit of detection (LOD), were studied to characterize them further and thereby to improve the sampling method. METHODS Through a field sampling in two shipyards(More)
OBJECTIVE Dust sample mass gain is too smaller to satisfy the limit of detection (LOD) even in most cases during dust sampling at workplaces nowdays, especially for respirable fraction. Therefore, it is aimed to solve the problem by increasing sample load with high flow rate samplers. METHODS In A and B two shipyards respirable welding fume was sampled by(More)
In China, dust samplers were originally designed to collect 'total dust' for a short term during production, which is different from the widely adopted sampling strategy for dust. With the aim to provide the conversion factor from Chinese total dust to US and German respirable dust and to look at the influences on conversion factors from environment,(More)
