FFF-MS workshop
Analytical tools in life sciencesEngineered nanomaterials are subject of intense research since several years - nanoanalytical tools are mainly based on fractionation techniques such as FFF, HDC and CE coupled on-line with ICP-MS. Nowadays imaging techniques gain importance in life-science, e.g. for the application of nanomaterials or the analysis of single-cells.Thus, the 7th Workshop on Field Flow Fractionation and Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS) will focus on the application of nanomaterials in life science and environmental technology and the applicability of nanoanalytical tools in these...

Book Ecotoxicology of Nanoparticles in Aquatic Systems
The book which includes one chapter written by members of the DaNa-Project was published at CRC Press. The content is summarized as “The use of nanoparticles in medicine, industrial, and other applications has triggered an interest in their potential. This book explores the use of nanoparticles related to their occurrence in the environment, their impact on biota in aquatic systems, application of new methodologies, and changes associated with new global scenarios. The book also covers the bioaccumulation and internalization of nanoparticles as key aspects to assess their uptake and...

OECD
The OECD Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) has recently published several new reports in its Series on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials, focusing on guiding principles for measurements of physical-chemical parameters, a physical-chemical decision framework and updates of the developments from the delegations. The purpose of these reports is to provide up-to-date information on the OECD activities related to human health and environmental safety.   New OECD WPMN reports 2019: No. 91 - Guiding Principles for Measurements and Reporting for...

MetalSafety Project Logo
 At the beginning of 2019, the "METALSAFETY" project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) was launched as part of the new "NanoCare 4.0 - application-safe material innovations" funding measure.The overall scientific objective of the MetalSafety project is the development of concepts for the toxicological evaluation and grouping of fibrous and granular metal compounds with different solubility or bioavailability. The project is coordinated by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) under the direction of Prof. Dr. Andrea Hartwig, Institute of...
