The distribution ratios of n-alkanes, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and nitrated PAH components between fine and coarse fractions of soot has been investigated in downtown Rome through three field campaigns carried out at different times of the year. The preferential accumulation of almost all species investigated onto fine particles has been(More)
13C NMR spin-lattice relaxation (T1) rates and 13C-1H nuclear Overhauser effects (NOEs) were measured in an identical fashion in two lipid preparations having dramatically different curvatures. The T1 times that were obtained at four magnetic field strengths were fit along with the NOEs to simple models for lipid molecular dynamics. The results indicate(More)
In this paper a comparison between the air quality data collected in urban and rural areas is performed taking in account the PM10 levels allowed in the European Union and in the world and is related to the increase of respiratory diseases. The parameters considered are essentially due to the anthropogenic primary pollution: particulate matter PM10, benzene(More)
The Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy, and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA) Neutron Active Interrogation (NAI) device is a tool designed to improve CBRNE defense. It is designed to uncover radioactive and nuclear threats including those in the form of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), the so-called “dirty bombs”. The NAI device,(More)
