Union Square 15 & 16 (Hilton San Francisco)
#387 - Environmental Effects of Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials (09006)
Widespread use of nanotechnology and increased production of nanomaterials will yield novel chemical species whose environmental effects are largely unknown. This session welcomes research papers on the fate of nanomaterials in the air, water, or soil environments; including transport and transformation of these materials.
