Performance of rapid sand filtration inter-chlorination system was compared with nanofiltration (NF) to reduce the arsenic health risk of drinking water. It was found that rapid sand filtration with inter-chlorination is not effective in removing arsenic. If total arsenic concentration in raw water is below 50 microg/L regardless of the turbidity of raw(More)
Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls (Co-PCBs) analyses in raw and treated water throughout Japan were implemented to identify the concentration and homologue patterns of dioxins before and after the water treatment process. In 40 surface water and 5 ground water treatment plants, the(More)
Computational human phantoms have been widely used to estimate organ doses and other dosimetric quantities related to the human body where direct measurements are difficult to perform. In recent years, voxel phantoms (voxel = volume element) based on computed tomographic (CT) data of real persons have been constructed which provide a realistic description(More)
Antimony has been one of the contaminants required to be regulated, however, only limited information has been collected to date regarding antimony removal by polyaluminium chloride (PACl) and ferric chloride (FC). Accordingly, the possible use of coagulation by PACl or FC for antimony removal was investigated. Jar tests were used to determine the effects(More)
The effects of chlorination on the elimination of three estrogenic chemicals such as 17beta-estradiol, nonylphenol and bis-phenol A were investigated using yeast two-hybrid assay (YTA), estrogen receptor (ER) competition assay (ER-CA), and high-performance liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS). The results of YTA, ER-CA and the analysis of LC/MS(More)
The report deals with 22 cases of two-phase head-shaking nystagmus. The results can be summarised as follows: 1. The two-phase head-shaking nystagmus is only found in connection with peripheral-vestibular disorders and particularly with unilateral disorders. It occurs only temporarily in the course of the vestibule disorder and may be observable for several(More)
A drinking water supply system operates at Chyasal (in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal) for purifying the groundwater that has high levels of ammonium nitrogen (NH4-N). However, high NO3-N concentrations were seen in the water after treatment. To further improve the quality of the drinking water, two types of attached growth reactors were developed for the(More)
Detection of various types of contaminants in water treatment plant by sophisticated analytical methods such as inductively coupled plasma/mass spectrometry and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry requires hours to days to provide the results. Because naturally occurring ultraviolet (UV) active compounds are commonly present in almost all source waters and(More)
We discuss a method for the production of microwave polymer-dispersed liquid-crystal devices. We also show how to obtain a fine grained uniform fibrous polymer network. We then measure how the microwave-band dielectric properties and response-time characteristics of microstrip-line-type polymer-dispersed liquid-crystal devices vary with polymer(More)
The present study was carried out to differentiate orienting reflexes (OR) from defensive reflexes (DR) using 20 female college students as Ss. All Ss received 5 stimulations of 1 sec weak tone (1000 Hz, 40 dB) and 5 stimulation of 1 sec strong tone (white noise, 100 dB) in a randomized order and time interval. Finger pulse amplitude (PA), finger blood(More)
