9780080994086: Nanoscience and the Environment (Frontiers of Nanoscience)

Nanomaterials in the Environment covers all aspects of manufactured nanomaterials and their impact and behavior in the environment. Starting with a general overview of the field, emphasizing key points and background, the book then covers crucial specific areas, including nanomaterial transformations in the environment due to dissolution, aggregation, and other processes, and the modeling of environmental exposure and fate. A chapter on formation of the "eco-corona investigates the state of the art with specific reference to the protein corona literature in human health. Finally, there are chapters on mechanisms of biouptake and toxicity. The fast-moving nature of the field and the quality of the submissions make this book essential reading for all those working in this area. It is suitable for researchers from Masters-level upwards, and for regulators and industry. The book can also be used as a high-level teaching aid. * Edited and written by leaders in this area* Environmental behavior and effects are discussed in depth* Useful for specialists and generalists at all levels of experience

About the Author:

Jamie R. Lead is Director of the SmartState Center for Environmental Nanoscience and Risk (CENR) at the University of South Carolina. He received his PhD in Environmental Chemistry at Lancaster University, UK in 1994, and subsequently undertook postdoctoral work in the UK and Switzerland. He was appointed as Lecturer in Aquatic Chemistry at the University of Birmingham in 2000, becoming Professor of Environmental Nanoscience in 2008 and starting the Facility for Environmental Nanoscience Analysis and Characterization (FENAC) in the same year. Professor Lead retains an adjunct position at the University of Birmingham, UK, after moving to the University of South Carolina, USA, in 2012 to become the Carolina SmartState endowed Professor of Environmental Nanoscience and Risk and founding Director of the CENR. The CENR aims to investigate both the potential environmental and human health implications of manufactured nanomaterials and natural nanomaterials and the sustainable development of nanomaterials for applications to environmental problems. Further information on the CENR can be found at www.cenr.sc.edu. Professor Lead is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Institute of Nanotechnology and the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and is editor of the journal Environmental Chemistry. He has published more than 120 peer-reviewed papers and has edited 3 books related to natural and manufactured nanomaterials. Eugenia ( va) Valsami-Jones received her PhD in Geochemistry at Newcastle University, UK, in 1990 and subsequently undertook postdoctoral work at the Universities of Leeds and Bristol (UK). She was appointed as senior researcher at the Natural History Museum in 1996, where she worked for 15 years, setting up and leading, amongst other activities, the Nanosciences research group, and becoming individual merit researcher in 2010. She moved to the University of Birmingham in 2011, where she was appointed Professor of Environmental Nanoscience. She became Director of the Facility for Environmental Nanoscience Analysis and Characterization (FENAC) in 2012. Through her research she has revolutionised the understanding of surface reactivity in natural and man-made substances and has pioneered work on the synthesis and characterisation of nanomaterials in a nanotoxicological context; she led the development of the first stable isotope labelled nanomaterials. Professor Valsami-Jones is a Fellow of the Geological Society, the Mineralogical Society and the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and a member of the BSI NTI/1 Nanotechnologies Committee. She is associate editor of Mineralogical Magazine and has served as guest editor to Elements. She has published more than 150 peer-reviewed papers and edited 2 books on environmental science topics.
