Physiochemical properties and risk assessment strategies for the use of ENP

As the use of engineered nanoparticles (ENP) increases so does the need for risk assessment strategies designed specifically for the unique physicochemical properties of ENP and their implications for environmental safety. This project will look at the existing methods available and will assess the appropriateness for use with ENP. The outcome will be a framework for the development of an intelligent testing strategy, including practical guidance and recommendations for industry and regulatory use.
