Scientists model nanoparticle risk to aquatic environment

Researchers from the Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) at Duke University in the US have presented a model to estimate the risk posed by nanomaterials in aquatic environments. 

The scientists demonstrate the model by evaluating the risk posed by nanosilver, concluding that this substance may pose significant risk due to its accumulation in sediments. 

The study is published in Science of the Total Environment.
