Title: Detection of ethylene gas in exhaled breath of people living in landfill using CO{sub 2} laser photoacoustic spectroscopy with multicomponent analysis

Abstract

The photoacoustic spectrometer (PAS) had been built and the performance had been determined. The research was based on the conversion of the absorbed middle infra red (IR) radiation by gas confined in a closed PAS cell into standing acoustic wave, which could be detected by a suitable electroacoustic transducer such as a microphone. The lowest detection limit for this setup was (57,1 ± 0,3) ppb and quality factor was (14,5 ± 0,6) for ethylene gas in 10P14 CO{sub 2} laser line. Then, this PAS was used to measure of ethylene gas concentration in breath sample of people living in near the Piyungan Bantul Yogyakarta landfill. The result from multicomponent analysis showed that PAS enable to measure the lowest concentration of volatile organic compound (VOC), such as ethylene, which occured on ambien air in Piyungan landfill. Variaty of distance area applied in this research. In the range of ±0,5 km from landfill, we obtained the concentration of ethylene gas concentration for human breath was (1,520 ± 0,002) ppm, while in the range of ±45 km, the ethylene gas concentration for human breath was (0,424 ± 0,002) ppm. Ethylene gas concentrations in exhaled gas decreased along with increasing distance variation of themore » landfill.« less

  • Rats pretreated with three agents known to stimulate cytochrome P-448-associated enzymes, 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), 3-methylcholanthrene (3MC), and Aroclor 1254 were studied with a /sup 14/CO/sub 2/ breath analysis techniqe after administration of /sup 14/C-dimethyl aminoazobenzene (DMAB). The half-life of breath /sup 14/CO2 after (/sup 14/C)DMAB administration was significantly decreased in the TCDD- , 3MC-, and Aroclor 1254-treated rats compared with controls. In vitro studies indicated that DMAB N-demethylase was increased by these three agents. Phenobarbital, an inducer of cytochrome P-450-associated enzymes, had no effect on /sup 14/CO/sub 2/ half-life or on DMAB N-demethylase. Studies with (/sup 14/C)aminopyrine, a cytochrome P-450 substrate,more » showed that TCDD and 3MC had no effect on /sup 14/CO/sub 2/ half-life or aminopyrine N-demethylase; Aroclor 1254 and phenobarbital decreased /sup 14/CO/sub 2/ half-life and stimulated aminopyrine N-demethylase. The data suggest that a (/sup 14/C)DMAB breath analysis technique may be useful for in vivo studies of inducers of cytochrome P-448.« less
  • Tunable diode lasers (TDLs) are applied to the diagnostics of gastroenterological diseases using respiratory tests and preparations enriched with the stable {sup 13}C isotope. This method of the analysis of the {sup 13}C/{sup 12}C isotope ratio in CO{sub 2} in exhaled air is based on the selective measurement of the resonance absorption at the vibrational - rotational structure of {sup 12}CO{sub 2} and {sup 13}CO{sub 2}. The CO{sub 2} transmission spectra in the region of 4.35 {mu}m were measured with a PbEuSe double-heterostructure TDL. The accuracy of carbon isotope ratio measurements in CO{sub 2} of exhaled air performed with themore » TDL was {approx}0.5%. The data of clinical tests of the developed laser-based analyser are presented. (laser biology and medicine)« less
  • Laser photoacoustic (PA) spectroscopy has shown itself to be a promising method for routine monitoring of trace amounts of pollutants in the atmosphere. The use of isotope-replaced variants of CO{sub 2} as an active laser medium is a fairly natural and simple approach for selective detection of small amounts of air pollutants. The present work introduces an intraresonator PA gas analyzer based on continuous {sup 13}C {sup 16} O laser which can give rapid determinations in less than one minute. Three air pollutants were investigated by PA determination: ammonia, phosphine, and arsine. The PA method show close agreement with calculatedmore » values of the pollutants.« less
  • An antimonide distributed feedback quantum wells diode laser operating at 3.32 μm at near room temperature in the continuous wave regime has been used to perform ethylene detection based on quartz enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy. An absorption line centered at 3007.52 cm{sup −1} was investigated and a normalized noise equivalent absorption coefficient (1σ) of 3.09 10{sup −7} cm{sup −1} W Hz{sup −1/2} was obtained. The linearity and the stability of the detection have been evaluated. Biological samples’ respiration has been measured to validate the feasibility of the detection setup in an agronomic environment, especially on ripening apples.
  • Measurements are reported of absorption coefficient for nitrogen-diluted propane obtained by both photoacoustic spectroscopy and photothermal deflection spectroscopy using a CO/sub 2/ laser.
