New article by Slomberg et al. in Science of The Total Environment

Predicting nanoparticle (NP) fate in the environment continues to remain a challenge, especially for natural surface water systems, where NPs can hetero-aggregate with natural organic and mineral suspended matter. Here we present the interactions and aggregation behavior of TiO2 NPs with natural organic matter (NOM) in a natural lake water. Read More

Poste d'ATER à Paris Sud, à partir de septembre 2019

Profil recherché : personne ayant une expérience d’enseignement dans les disciplines des Sciences de la Terre et de l’Environnement, en cours, TD, TP et dans l’encadrement des stages et travaux de terrain. L’agrégation de sciences de la vie et de le Terre serait un plus, mais n’est pas une condition indispensable. Read More

New article by Morin et al. in building and environment

Given toxic nature of many VOCs present within indoor environments, it is necessary to measure and quantify indoor VOC emissions to better inform and protect the public from possible adverse health effects of indoor air pollution. To better understand and quantify this problem, a horizontal flow tube reactor was used to study VOC emissions from selected paint. Read More

New article by Auffan et al. in NanoImpact

Environmental risk assessment of nanomaterials generally relies on a decision-tree based strategy which provides guidance and protocols for the determination of a collection of hazard end-points. Mesocosm testing is based on a different approach. It consists in monitoring the evolution of a re-created miniature ecosystem subsequent to a nanomaterial contamination. Read More

New article by Bossa et al. in Environmental Science: Nano

Nanomaterials have been widely used in a wide range of manufactured products in order to improve/add new properties. Photocatalytic cement maintains clean and white wall fronts and also provides interesting air pollution-reducing properties due to the photocatalytic activity of incorporated TiO2-NMs. Read More

New article by Askri et al. in Food and Chemical Toxicology

Iron Oxide Nanoparticles (IONPs) are used in several fields of application, mainly in the biomedical field for their magnetic properties and in food additive known as “E172” for their colour. In the present investigation, we focused on IONP effects on Wistar rat following acute oral exposure. Read More

New article by Dorier et al. in Environmental Science: Nano

Environmental contamination with TiO2 and the use of TiO2 as a food additive (E171) or in cosmetics result in human exposure to TiO2 via inhalation, ingestion, and through skin contact. When inhaled, most TiO2 particles are cleared via the mucociliary escalator and are then swallowed. Read More
