Details the source, release, exposure, bioavailability, transport, transformation, and modeling of engineered nanoparticles found in many common products and applications

Engineered nanoparticles are found in an increasing number of consumers products (such as lotions, shampoos, socks, paints, and toys) and applications (e.g., biomedical, electronic, and environmental) due to the rapid development and implementation of nanotechnology. Due to their anticipated high–volume production and widespread use, engineered nanoparticles will be unavoidably introduced into the environment during intentional application, accidental release, and disposal at the end of the life–cycle of products containing engineered nanoparticles.

Engineered Nanoparticles and the Environment: Biophysicochemical Processes and Toxicity provides the latest information and critical evaluation by the world–leading scientists on biophysico–chemical processes and toxicity of engineered nanoparticles in the environment. It details the source, release, exposure, adsorption, bioavailability, transport, transformation, and modeling of engineered nanoparticles which are found in many common products and applications.

Engineered Nanoparticles and the Environment features:

  • Synthesis, environmental application, detection and characterization of engineered nanoparticles
  • Toxicity and risk assessment of engineered nanoparticles
  • Topics on the adsorption, aggregation, transport, transformation, and modeling of engineered nanoparticles
  • Latest information and critical evaluation of engineered nanoparticles

This book provides an advanced treatise on the subject matter and a unique addition to the scientific literature for both research and education in this extremely important and exciting area of science.
