Nanoparticles and Organic Pollutants

Engineered nanoparticles (ENP) have effects on human health that are strongly related to their surface properties. However, there is limited understanding of their fate, transport, toxicity and pollutant interactions. Pollutants-colloid interaction Nanoparticles suspended in natural water come in contact with pollutants. The unique properties of ENP are influenced by their large surface area relative to […]

Measure Any Sample with Precision

Thermogravimetry (TGA) is a technique that measures the change in weight of a sample as it is heated, cooled or held at constant temperature. Its main use is to characterise materials with regard to their composition. Application areas include plastics, elastomers and thermosets, mineral compounds and ceramics. Mettler Toledo launched the TGA 1, which is […]
