Abstract

Radiolabeling is a strong tool for the research of nanoparticle fate in the environment as it allows sensitive detection at very low concentrations. We introduced radiolabels into commerical TiO2, CeO2 and multi-wall carbon nanotubes using various cyclotron and non-cyclotron techniques. The so-labelled nanoparticles can be used in fate studies of nanoparticle beahavior in waste water treatment and their possible uptake into plants.
