Understanding carbon nanoparticle transport in saturated porous media: the influence of dissolved organic matter
Nanoparticles (NPs), or objects with all dimensions between 1 nanometer (nm) and 100 nm, are ubiquitous in atmospheric, aquatic, and terrestrial settings. The ability to engineer NPs and utilize their unique size-dependent physicochemical properties has resulted in the rise of nanotechnology as a prominent component of twenty-first century research and industry. Engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) commonly reach groundwater systems after being released to the environment as byproducts of various human goods and activities or agents of groundwater remediation. While ENPs are released at a significant ...
