Background, aim, and scopeWe recently developed a new isolation method for diesel exhaust particles (DEP), involving successive extraction with H2O, sodium bicarbonate, and sodium hydroxide, in which the sodium hydroxide extract was found to consist of phenolic components. Analysis of the extract revealed that vasodilative-active nitrophenols are in DEP in significantly higher concentrations than those estimated by an earlier method involving a combination of solvent extraction and repeated… Expand

TLDR
From one of the obtained fractions that showed estrogenic activity, three alkyltrimethylbenzenes were identified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and 1H-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Expand
Isolation of nitrophenols from diesel exhaust particles (DEP) as vasodilatation compounds.
TLDR
The compounds in diesel exhaust particles (DEP) that are responsible for vasodilatation were isolated and characterized for the first time and caused dilatation of rat thoracic artery and the other two nitrophenols also showed vasodILatation activities. Expand

TLDR
The results demonstrate that PNMC in diesel exhaust particles clearly has anti-androgenic activity both in vitro and in vivo and can therefore be considered as an endocrine-disrupting chemical. Expand

Secondary effects of catalytic diesel particulate filters: conversion of PAHs versus formation of nitro-PAHs.
TLDR
It is concluded that both DPFs detoxified diesel exhaust with respect to total aryl hydrocarbons, including the investigated carcinogenic PAHs, but the authors also noticed a secondary formation of selected nitro-PAHs. Expand

TLDR
Results from this study show that mutagenic activity can be compared to seasonal and local variations of gaseous indicator air pollutants and “classical” indicators of air pollution and bacterial mutagenicity of organic extracts from airborne particulate matter are influenced by connected effects.
