Project: Identification of factors affecting physicochemical fate of metallic nanoparticles released into surface waters

project duration
01-FEB-10 – 30-NOV-14
abstract
The project identifies parameters affecting the fate of metallic nanoparticles released into surface waters and reveals kinetics of transformation processes occurring after such release. In addition, environmental factors affecting remobilization of adsorbed or precipitated metallic nanoparticles into surface waters are studied. Focus is also laid on developing analytical methods to quantify metallic nanoparticles in surface waters.
