The blended active layers of PCDTBT : [PC.sub.71]BM were prepared by spin-coating technique, with different blend ratios of 1 : 3 to 1 : 6 being adopted for three different organic solvents of chloroform (1wt%), chlorobenzene (2wt%), and o-dichlorobenzene (3wt%), respectively.
The authors looked for associations between 15 categories of congenital heart defects and exposure to types of organic solvents known to be relatively common in the workplace.
Regulations differ worldwide, importantly for coatings technology development, in their treatment of the various types of organic solvent. In the E.U., for example there is no distinction between types of VOC, control levels are based on carbon content only.

The researchers found that, overall, exposure to organic solvents increased the risk of MS (odds ratio, 1.5).
"How this cocktail of MS genes, organic solvents and smoking contributes so significantly to MS risk warrants investigation," said Gabriele C.
Although a number of studies demonstrating that chronic exposure to organic solvents affects visual processing and basic visual functions such as CSF have been conducted, the majority of the studies on this topic have been performed in men (8,9) rather than in women, despite the evidence that men and women have different body compositions, a factor that may influence the toxicokinetics of solvents (10).
The high flux that the OSN method displays opens up new opportunity to separate molecules from different organic solvents for chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
The synthesis of polymers in organic solvents, a widely adopted practice on industrial scales, has been gradually replaced by methods that employ water as the solvent.
