A phenylarsenical, 3-nitro-4-hydroxyphenylarsonic acid (RoxarsoneÂ®, Rox), has been used extensively as a poultry feed additive for over 60 years. However, little is known about the concentrations of different arsenic species present in chicken meat as a consequence of feeding Rox to chickens....
Roxarsone® (ROX, 3-nitro-4-hydroxyphenylarsonic acid) has been used in the poultry industry to prevent coccidiosis, enhance feed efficiency, and to promote growth of the broiler chickens. However, the metabolism, distribution, and elimination of ROX from poultry are not well understood. The focus...
Analytical Characterization of Halobenzoquinones as Emerging Disinfection Byproducts in Disinfected WaterDownload
Water disinfection is necessary for killing pathogens, but it causes an unintended chemical risk from the formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs). Epidemiological studies show a potential association of water disinfection with increased risk of bladder cancer. It is unknown what DBPs are...
This thesis describes a binding-induced DNA nanosensor and its application to homogeneous detection of DNA and proteins. This nanosensor was based on the binding-induced assembly of fluorescently labeled DNA on the DNA-functionalized quantum dots, resulting in fluorescence resonance energy...
Disinfection byproducts (DBPs) are an unwanted consequence of water disinfection. Consumption of chlorinated drinking water has been associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer; however, the DBP or DBPs responsible has not been identified. The N-nitrosamines are a class of DBPs that are...
Drinking water disinfection byproducts (DBPs) are formed unintentionally when organic matter in raw water reacts with disinfectants used to kill pathogens. Epidemiological studies have shown that an increased risk of bladder cancer is associated with consumption of chlorinated water, but little...
The assembly of nanoparticle building blocks into more complex nanostructures has important applications in analytical chemistry, materials science, medical science, optics, and electronics. Due to its exquisite specificity and programmable nature, DNA has emerged as a very promising biomolecule...
