Ultrafine particles in cities.
Ultrafine particles (UFPs; diameter less than 100 nm) are ubiquitous in urban air, and an acknowledged risk to human health. Globally, the major source for urban outdoor UFP concentrations is motor… Expand
A review of the characteristics of nanoparticles in the urban atmosphere and the prospects for developing regulatory controls
The likely health and environmental implications associated with atmospheric nanoparticles have prompted considerable recent research activity. Knowledge of the characteristics of these particles has… Expand
Dynamics and dispersion modelling of nanoparticles from road traffic in the urban atmospheric environment—A review
Abstract Reducing exposure to atmospheric nanoparticles in urban areas is important for protecting public health. Developing new or improving the capabilities of existing dispersion models will help… Expand

The characterization of cells with tumour initiating potential is significant for advancing our understanding of cancer and improving therapy. Aggressive, triple‐negative breast cancers (TNBCs) are… Expand
Concentration dynamics of coarse and fine particulate matter at and around signalised traffic intersections.
The understanding of rapidly evolving concentrations of particulate matter (PMC) at signalised traffic intersections (TIs) is limited, but it is important for accurate exposure assessment. We… Expand
Technical challenges in tackling regulatory concerns for urban atmospheric nanoparticles
Abstract Recent Euro 5 and Euro 6 vehicle emission standards are the first ever initiative to control particles on a number basis at the source. Related standards are also desirable for ambient… Expand
