Nano-Transfer

Nanomaterials in the aquatic environment

The distribution, bioaccumulation and biomagnification of C-MNMs in complex micro- and mesocosm systems represent a broad research field.

BUT

What about the long term behaviour of nanoparticles under environmentally relevant conditions?

These aspects will be analysed in the NANO-Transfer project
