Latest Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon Stories
A group of organic chemicals that are considered carcinogens and pollutants today on Earth, but are also thought to be the building blocks for the origins of life, may hold clues to how carbon-rich chemicals created in stars are processed and recycled in space.
The very same beer that many people enjoy at backyard barbeques could, when used as a marinade, help reduce the formation of potentially harmful substances in grilled meats. The study appears in ACS' Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
Decreased exposure to air pollution in utero is linked with improved childhood developmental scores and higher levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a key protein for brain development.
A new study from Stanford University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has revealed that crude oil interferes with fish heart cells, resulting in a slowed heart rate, reduced cardiac contractility and irregular heartbeats that can lead to cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death.
Dangerous new carcinogenic compounds produced by certain types of chemical reactions, such as those found in vehicle exhaust or grilling meat, have been discovered.
Maternal psychological distress combined with exposure to air pollution during pregnancy have an adverse impact on the child's behavioral development.
Scientists have known for a while that tobacco smoke, diesel exhaust and oil combustion are sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) that are known to cause cancer.
Scientists said they confirmed the presence of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the upper atmosphere of Saturn's largest moon, Titan.
In addition to being a key component of life on Earth, carbon is the sixth most abundant element in the Universe. Yet despite its ubiquitous existence in the cosmos, the evolution of carbon in molecules has been difficult to study. Until now.
Research from the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) looked at the effects of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) exposure on a sample of
