Determination of the surface sorption properties of talc, different salts, and clay minerals at various relative humidities using adsorption data of a diverse set of organic vapors

Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry
Kai-Uwe GossRené P Schwarzenbach


Adsorption constants of a diverse set of organic vapors have been measured on NaCl, KNO3, (NH4)2SO4, NH4Cl, kaolinite, bentonite. and talc at different relative humidities at 15 degrees C. Together with the earlier studied quartz (SiO2), CaCO3, and alpha-Al2O3, these surfaces represent relevant sorbents for organic vapors in the environment. An equation that describes the van der Waals and H-bond interactions between the sorbate and the surface can be used to describe the sorbate and sorbent variability in the measured data and to predict sorption constants of organic compounds that have not been tested on the respective surface. The unknown properties of the sorbent surfaces are used as fitting parameters in this equation. These data provide important insights into the variability of sorption properties of natural, inorganic surfaces as a function of relative humidity.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
