Publication in Angewandte Chemie: Review of techniques to study nano plastics

On October 21, 2022, Laurens Mandemaker and Florian Meirer published a review in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Angewandte Chemie investigating the different micro-spectroscopic techniques available specifically for the detection of nanoplastics (NPs). Being able to accurately detect and characterize micro- and nanoplastics (MNPs) is a crucial first step in assessing human exposure to MNPs and their potential impacts on early life health. The study was carried out with funding from the AURORA and POLYRISK projects within the CUSP research cluster as well as from the NWO Groot project Nanoplastics: Origin, Structure, and Fate.
