Stabilization of silver nanoparticles with a dithiocarbamate ligand and formation of nanocomposites by combination with polythiophene derivative nanoparticles.
We have previously reported associations of cumulative exposure to pesticides, especially herbicides and dithiocarbamate fungicides, with hypothyroidism-like effects and poorer sperm quality in male farm workers in Serra Gaucha, a family-based agricultural region in the South of Brazil (22,23).
The objective of this work is to study the toxic effect of the dithiocarbamate "thiram 80% purity" on seasonal reproduction of male domestic pigeons Columba livia domestica, subjected to a long photoperiod (19L: 05D).
NR latex based adhesives are typically vulcanized by sulfur/accelerator vulcanization (most commonly with dithiocarbamate accelerators) and elevated temperature is usually required by the vulcanization process [6].
(26) reported that TGF-[beta]-induced p38 activation was mediated by the Rac1-regulated generation of ROS in cultured human keratinocytes; nonetheless, the authors observed that DPI and pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (known as an antioxidant) had no inhibitory effects on the TGF-[beta] induced phosphorylation of Smad2.
Metam sodium (sodium N-methyldithiocarbamate), a liquid dithiocarbamate, is widely used as a soil fumigant, pesticide, herbicide, and fungicide in agricultural practices (3), with relatively low acute toxicity (4).
Another mitigation strategy is to increase the level of antioxidants such as zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP) or molybdenum dithiocarbamate (MoDTC) [23, 24].
