Metal and metal oxide nanomaterials are found in many consumer products for use in a wide range of applications including catalysis, sensors and contaminant remediation. Because of the extensive use of metal-based nanomaterials, there are concerns that these materials have the potential to get into the environment sometime during production, distribution, use and/or disposal. In particular, there exists the potential that they will make their way into water systems, e.g. drinking water systems… CONTINUE READING
