Changes in speciation of engineered silver and zinc oxide nanoparticles driven by microbial stratification in sediment-water microcosms.

Project Details


EXAFS analysis of sediments from Blackford Pond following incubation for several weeks after addition of nanoparticulate silver and ZnO

Key findings

Both Ag and ZnO nanoparticles were rapidly transformed to sulphides due to the presence of reactive sulphide in the sediment.
