About this book

As nanotechnology enters everyday life, engineered nanoparticles (ENP) will find their way into nature, including surface and groundwater. Here, distinguished experts of water chemistry present dedicated methods for the analysis of nanoparticles in the aquatic environment, their distribution and fate. This includes the influence of complex matrices such as wastewater, brown water with natural organic matter (NOM), and high salt concentrations as well as available and future standardized methods. The background of geogenic, natural nanoparticles is considered in a discussion of known environmental effects, including strategies to test for potential effects on human and environmental health.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in nanotechnology in general and in environmental aspects of nanotechnology in particular. … Its contents could be useful to Master and Ph.D. students working in nanotechnology. It should also be very interesting to scientists working in both nanotechnology and environmental science and technology. It is a good reference book, and will support those involved in the production of nanomaterials for a variety of purposes and those involved in maintaining the quality of water.” (Miguel Valcárcel, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 400, 2011)
