UL Research Institutes' Chemical Insights Research Institute Launches Resource Library


The Chemical Insights Research Institute (CIRI) of UL Research Institutes has launched a new resource library, featuring standards and guidance documents, technical reports, scientific journal articles, educational videos, and other publications on its research initiatives.

Highlights include a peer-reviewed journal article, “Toxicological Assessment of Particulate and Metal Hazards Associated with Vaping Frequency and Device Age,” focused on how electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) aerosols present inhalation and adverse respiratory health risks.

The guidance document, Use of Do-It-Yourself Filtration Devices During Wildfires,” features how to make DIY air cleaners that can be used to filter out smoke particulates during wildfires or other events creating particle pollution, and is among other new publications posted in the resource website.

Library visitors can filter content by research initiative, resource type, and author.

“The resource library is an important example of how CIRI amplifies its research,” said Dr. Marilyn Black, vice president and senior technical advisor, CIRI. “Users have access to a wide range of free information on our key research topics including global air pollution, children’s health, climate change and health, wildfires, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), hazards of vaping, 3D printing emissions, and the risks of chemical exposure from consumer products. We welcome all users to click through and gain scientific insights to protect the health of their colleagues, constituents, loved ones, and themselves.”
