Influence of the diesel fuel sulfur content on the formation of nanoparticles

Ristovski, Zoran, Jayaratne, Rohan, Ayoko, Godwin A., Lim, McKenzie, & Morawska, Lidia (2002) Influence of the diesel fuel sulfur content on the formation of nanoparticles. In 6th International Aerosol Conference, 8-13 September 2002, Taipei, Taiwan..


In recent years fine and ultra fine particles emitted from internal combustion engines have attracted an increasing level of attention. This attention has arisen from epidemiological studies conducted by a number of research groups and pointing to the health effects resulting from inhalation of fine particles. Previous studies on the influence of fuel sulfur level on diesel vehicle emissions were mainly concentrated on particle mass emissions. This study aims at investigating the influence of the reduction of diesel fuel sulfur level on the emission and formation of nanoparticles

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
