Editors’ Series: Bulk and Single Nanoparticle Analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
Event Date: January 29, 2013 at 09:00 AM EST
The analysis of nanoparticles in various matrices has been carried out by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and various applications have demonstrated its efficient detection capabilities. For example, respiration is a route of entry to the human body for released nanoparticles. ICP-MS has been shown to effectively measure the uptake of cerium oxide nanoparticle in lung fibroblasts and crop uptake of nanoparticles released to the environment to see how they enter the food chain.

More than 100 million tons of municipal solid waste are incinerated worldwide every year and little is known about the fate of nanomaterials during incineration. To study this, 7 tons of waste enriched with 10 kg cerium oxide nanoparticles was aspirated into a full-scale incineration plant. ICP-MS was used to study the flue gas and incineration residues.

All of these studies demonstrate that nanoparticles remain in the environment, presenting a challenge where analytical science is crucial and some new strategies for individual nanoparticle detection are currently under investigation.

In this seminar, we will discuss such applications to understand the best approaches to ICP-MS methods for nanoparticle analysis.
