FFF Workshop 2017
From 28th-29th September 2017, the University of Vienna is organizing together with the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) and German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG) a workshop on Field-Flow Fractionation & Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS) focussing on the analysis of nanoparticles in environmental- & life-sciences as well as in consumer products. It is designed for PhD students and scientist who are working the field of colloid and nanomaterial analysis. Deadline for Abstract Submission is August 15th 2017. Part I (first day – free of charge) will...

Publication in Environ Sci Technol 2017
A team of French scientists has recently published new findings on the effects and interactions of silver nanoparticles and plants titled "Silver Nanoparticles and Wheat Roots: A Complex Interplay" in the journal of Environmental Science & Technology. Scientists have hypothesised that silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) may act as "Trojan horses" entering living organisms and then releasing silver cations (Ag+) over time, causing toxicity. This has been recently proposed as the mechanism by which Ag2S-NPs could be toxic to wheat and cowpea.New work by a team of French scientists...

DGUV Nanorama
The DGUV Nano-Portal contains aside from exhaustive information material also interactive 360°-Nanoramas, which depict standards for a safe work environment with nanomaterials in different job fields. These applications have now been optimised for use on mobile devices (tablets, smartphones). This allows the nanoramas to be used "on site" during training, without the need for a computer or laptop. Nanomaterials are found in many industrial products and processes. Several construction materials, paint or plastics contain nano materials that are supposed to enhance the properties of...

UBA Scientific Stakeholder Meeting
From 10th–11th October 2017, the German Federal Environmental Agency (UBA) is hosting a scientific stakeholder meeting on Nanomaterials in the Environment at the UBA Headquarters in Dessau-Rosslau, Germany. The meeting focusses on regulatory relevant results of German and European research projects on nanomaterials in the environment which are carried out or finalised in the current years. The event is organised by UBA and financed by the German Federal Ministry of for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). Deadline for Registration is 15th August...
