Research work: “Heteroaggregation of nanoplastic particles in presence of inorganic colloids and natural organic matter” published in the Environmental Science: Nano

This study aims to clarify the behaviour of nanoplastic particles in aquatic systems. The accumulation of micro and nanoplastics pollution in marine and fresh waters represents a huge environmental concern. Due to the complexity of nanoplastic surface chemistry and impact of surrounding aquatic environment, the fate of nanoplastics is still difficult to evaluate. Our study aims to explore the effect of different water components, such as natural organic matter, inorganic colloids as well as water composition on the stability of polystyrene nanoplastics.
