Plenary Lecture 5
Environmental transformations and exposure are key elements in determining the environmental and health effects of nanomaterials. Tools for predicting the environmental behaviour include functional assays that can be used to evaluate nanomaterial properties in complex or reference systems. Simulations show that nanoparticles introduced in a complex, albeit greatly simplified environment...
