Abstract

This article reports on research that looks at the potential of laboratory personnel to be exposed to engineered carbon-based nano materials in a laboratory setting. To do this, a team of researchers measured the amount of carbonaceous nanomaterials (CNMs) released into the air during routine material handling and processing tasks in standard environmental matrices such as artificial river water. The authors evaluated nano-material releases using real-time particle counters and transmission electron microscopy.
