Organophosphate esters (OPEs) have been widely used in various products as alternatives to brominated flame retardants. Although widespread OPE exposure is expected in humans, the accumulation of OPEs has seldom been studied in the human body. In this study, 12 OPE analogs were analyzed in 50 human placentas collected in Eastern China. The concentrations of(More)
Capillary electrophoresis (CE) coupled with fiber-optic light-emitting diode-induced fluorescence detection has been developed for the separation of tyrosine (Tyr) enantiomers. R(-)-4-(3-isothiocyanatopyrrolidin-1-yl)-7-(N,N-dimethylaminosulfonyl)-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole was used as a chiral fluorescence tagged reagent for derivatization of Tyr. The effect of(More)
The saccule is known to play an important role in hearing in fishes. In this study we investigated spatial frequency selectivity of single saccular afferents in a teleost fish (the sleeper goby, Dormitator latifrons) to acoustic particle motion at 50-400 Hz. Saccular afferents have similar distributions of best sensitivity (-90.0 to -54.8 dB re. 1 g, mean(More)
Highly ordered titanium dioxide (TiO(2)) nanotubes film was successfully synthesized via anodic oxidation of a Ti foil in an ammonium fluoride-based ethylene glycol solution. The electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL) behavior of the resulting TiO(2) nanotubes film was subsequently studied. Strong ECL emission was observed at -1.40V (vs. Ag/AgCl) and the(More)
To assess microbial degradation of alpha-cypermethrin in soil, attenuation of alpha-cypermethrin was investigated by compound-specific stable isotope analysis. The variations of the residual concentrations and stable carbon isotope ratios of alpha-cypermethrin were detected in unsterilized and sterilized soils spiked with alpha-cypermethrin. After an 80(More)
A method for preparation of a stationary phase-adjustable column with in-column stationary phase-coated fused-silica fiber annular column was successfully developed. The surface of a 0.12 mm o.d. bare optical fiber was first coated with a stationary phase and then inserted into a fused-silica capillary (non-coated or coated) as an annular column for gas(More)
In this study, the microbial degradation of lambda-cyhalothrin in soil was investigated using compound-specific stable isotope analysis. The results revealed that lambda-cyhalothrin was biodegraded in soil under laboratory conditions. The half-lives of lambda-cyhalothrin were determined to be 49 and 161 days in non-sterile and sterile soils spiked with(More)
