Guest Edited Special Issue on "Nanomaterials and the Environment"

Developments in nanoscience have brought industrial benefits as well as environmental concerns. Nanomaterials have been considered a potential environmental emerging contaminant, and their origin can be natural, incidental, or from manufacturing processes. I as a "Lead Guest Editor", along with my collaborators acting as Guest Co-Editors from the UK, Australia and India, have recently completed an special issue titled as "Nanomaterials and the Environment" for the "Journal of Nanomaterials".

We invited researchers to contribute original research articles as well as review articles related to characterisation, emissions, transformation, dispersion, fate, and effects of nanomaterials in different environmental compartments (air, water, and soil). Also were invited articles dealing with the environmental and health impacts, of nanomaterials and particulate matter in general, and the implications for policy and regulations for both the indoor and outdoor environments.

The issue is now available online and the articles published as a part of this special issue can be freely accessed by clicking here.
