Inherent redox properties of diesel exhaust particles: catalysis of the generation of reactive oxygen species by biological reductants.


The toxicity of diesel exhaust particles (DEP) can be due to the particle itself, extractable components, or both. Many studies focus on the biological properties of DEP-extractable components although it is possible that chemical properties inherent to the DEP itself can lead to toxicity. Thus, an examination of the chemistry inherent to DEP was carried… (More)
