Analysis & Fate of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes
The general objectives of this research are to: (1) develop and validate sensitive and selective analytical methods based on near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) spectroscopy for assaying the fate and transport of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) in estuarine sediment, water, and fauna and; (2) utilize the developed NIRF methods in parallel with radiotracer experiments (14C-SWNT) to determine the partitioning, biological uptake, and transformation of SWNT and their nanocarbon manufacturing byproducts in estuarine sediment microcosms under laboratory conditions.
