This study presents the research on the chemical analysis and genotoxicity of 28 virgin/recycled paper products in food-contact use. In the chemical analysis, paper products were extracted by reflux with ethanol, and analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. 4,4'-bis(dimethylamino)benzophenone (Michler's ketone: MK),(More)
A new rotary encoder is proposed which detects displacement of speckle arising in the diffraction field of a cylinder illuminated by a narrow laser beam. The displacement is detected from the peak position of the cross-correlation between the outputs of a linear image sensor. The speckle displacement due to small rotation of the cylinder is derived first.(More)
In order to identify potential genotoxicant(s) in recycled paperboard, samples were fractionated using multiple liquid/liquid extraction, and gel permeation chromatography, and analysed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry. The rec-assay was used as an indicator of genotoxicity. Genotoxicants in the recycled(More)
An improved method for determination of bisphenol A (BPA), phenol (PH), p-tert-butylphenol (PTBP) and diphenylcarbonate (DPC) in polycarbonate products was developed without using the hazardous solvent dichloromethane. Polycarbonate samples were ground to powder or cut into small pieces, and 0.5 g was soaked in 5 mL of acetonitrile for 24 hours at 40(More)
Toxic equivalent (TEQ) levels of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDDs/DFs) and coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls (CoPCBs) were analyzed in both crude (n = 5) and refined-hardening fish oils (n = 2), which are used in part as the raw materials of margarine and shortening, and in some retailed fish (n = 6), which may be similar to those(More)
The possibility of colloid generation from cement hydrates in a cementitious repository environment has been investigated through leaching experiments. Pulverized samples of High Flyash and Silica fume-content Cement (HFSC) and 1:9 ordinary portland cement/blast furnace slag (1:9 OPC/BFS) hydrate were leached in low-salinity groundwater at three(More)
