Disease relevance of Gasoline

  • Bacillus naphthovorans strain MN-003 can also grow on benzene, toluene, xylene and diesel fuel while Micrococcus sp. str [1].
  • OBJECTIVES: The possible etiologic relevance of occupational factors such as cadmium, cutting oils, diesel fuel and fumes, herbicides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), polychlorinated biphenyls, soot, tar, mineral oil, and solvents to prostate cancer was studied [2].

High impact information on Gasoline

  • The sensing phase was evaluated for identification of sources of contamination of water in simulated studies, employing Brazilian gasoline type A (without ethanol), gasoline type C (with 25% of anhydrous ethanol), and diesel fuel [3].
  • We used the resulting two-dimensional retention indices to estimate the liquid vapor pressures, aqueous solubilities, air-water partition coefficients, octanol-water partition coefficients, and vaporization enthalpies of a nearly complete set of diesel fuel hydrocarbons [4].
  • Analyses of base fuels from five different sources demonstrated that an automated FI-CL-SPE system could provide a portable instrument for monitoring the presence/absence of dodecylamine in diesel fuels [5].
  • The method is based on the peroxyoxalate/sulforhodamine 101 chemiluminescence reaction, with SPE required to remove indigenous compounds within the diesel fuel matrix that interfere with the CL response [5].
  • Arrays of these vapor detectors were easily able to resolve signatures due to exposures to DMMP from those due to DIMP or due to a variety of other test analytes (including water, methanol, benzene, toluene, diesel fuel, lighter fluid, vinegar, and tetrahydrofuran) in a laboratory air background [6].

Biological context of Gasoline


Associations of Gasoline with chemical compounds

  • Q15 utilized a broad range of aliphatics (C10 to C21 alkanes, branched alkanes, and a substituted cyclohexane) present in diesel fuel at 5 degrees C. Mineralization of hexadecane at 5 degrees C was significantly greater in both hydrocarbon-contaminated and pristine soil microcosms seeded with Q15 cells than in uninoculated control soil microcosms [10].
  • Population Dynamics within a Microbial Consortium during Growth on Diesel Fuel in Saline Environments [11].
  • In a microcosm study, adding diesel fuel hydrocarbon to an uncontaminated soil (agricultural unfertilized soil) treated with ammonium sulfate dramatically reduced the amount of KCl-extractable nitrate but stimulated ammonium consumption [12].
  • Studies with a variety of diesel fuels showed that the amount of dioxin-receptor ligands present in exhaust emissions are fuel-dependent and that substantial amounts of dioxin-receptor ligands are present in the semivolatile phase of exhaust emissions [13].
  • Analytical results are reported for samples taken from terminals as part of an effort to assess the sources of MTBE in heating oil and diesel fuel [14].

Gene context of Gasoline

  • The screening of rainwater from different locations showed that samples collected in countries in which leaded gasolines are now banned contain organolead species at concentrations below 2 pg/ mL, levels that can be detected only for sample volumes of 25 mL and using MIP-AES or ICP-TOFMS as detectors, their determination being impossible by GC/MS [15].
  • A bacterial consortium which rapidly mineralizes benzo[a]pyrene when it is grown on a high-boiling-point diesel fuel distillate (HBD) was recovered from soil and maintained for approximately 3 years [16].
  • Determination of total sulfur in diesel fuel employing NIR spectroscopy and multivariate calibration [17].
  • Comparison of exhaust emissions from Swedish environmental classified diesel fuel (MK1) and European Program on Emissions, Fuels and Engine Technologies (EPEFE) reference fuel: a chemical and biological characterization, with viewpoints on cancer risk [18].
  • A pilot scale experiment for humic acid-enhanced remediation of diesel fuel, described in Part 1 of this series, is numerically simulated in three dimensions [19].
