[CEST2019_00215] Validation of a multistep derivatization method for the determination of polar species in organic aerosol.
by Kanellopoulos P.G., Chrisohou E., Koukoulakis K., Papadakis I., Bakeas E.

Secondary organic aerosol (SOA) is a significant constituent of airborne fine particles. A multistep derivatization method was developed, optimized, and validated for the determination of organic compounds in the atmospheric aerosol with mono- and multi-functional species, with GC/MS. The first step includes the alkylation of the carbonyl (C=O) moieties using o-methylhydroxylamine hydrochloride as the derivatization reagent. The second step refers to the conversion of carboxylic acids to methyl ester derivatives using TMSD/methanol or BF3/methanol.

[CEST2019_00960] Necessity of Full Implementation of Type Approval for Non Road Mobile Machinery in the Republic of Croatia
by Lulić Z., Sraga V., Šagi G., Ilinčić P.

Along with continuous progress in the reduction of emissions from road vehicles, the Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) becomes a more and more important source of emissions.
Namely, although the EU Regulation 2016/1628 for NRMM introduces the latest limit emission values known as Stage V, their values are still considerably higher than those of road vehicles. Also, the average age of the NRMMs is always significantly higher than the average age of road vehicles. Additionally, a significant share of NRMM is used in highly urbanised areas.

[CEST2019_00749] Risk assessment and apportionment studies of particulate pollution at Ankamaly,South India
by Keerthi R., Selvaraju N., Varghese L.A.

In the present world which is engulfed by the ill-effects of air pollution, stringent permissible emission standards to curb pollution are mandatory. Source and risk apportionment studies help to understand the sources and their contributions. Four parameters, lifetime average daily dose, hazard quotient, hazard index, excess cancer risk helped in assessing the risk at sampling site selected at Ankamaly, Kerala. Lifetime average daily dose was found be in the descending order as Fe> K> Na> Ca.
