Conserving plastic objects in museums: Emitted volatiles act as exhibit degradation markers

Date: Oct 15, 2012

Author: Steve Down

Specific volatiles emitted from plastic objects in museums have been identified by SPME-GC/MS, giving a series of degradation markers and that will help with the preservation of valuable exhibits.

Swimming pool imperfections: Disinfection by-products from skin and urine

Date: Jul 16, 2012

Author: Steve Down

New disinfection by-products identified in swimming pools are mainly halophenols and halonitrophenols that originate from the chlorination of human urine and skin, so swimmers should avoid urinating in the water, say Chinese researchers
