Nanoparticles Analysis by ICP-MS

The use of nanomaterials – as anti-fouling agents for marine applications, administration of fertilizers and pesticides for agricultural purposes, and in personal care products such as facial creams and toothpaste – has increase the concentration of these silica, metallic and organic based materials in the environment. The limited understanding regarding nanoparticle fate and impact in the environment has driven some countries to ban their use. Characterizing nanoparticle concentrations, distribution environmental impact require requires detection, quantitation and single particle characterization in complex matrices. Agilent’s solution for ICP/MS – Model 7900 ICP/MS and 8800 Triple Quadrupole ICP/MS – Agilent’s solutions provide researchers with powerful, fast and cost effective tools that facilitate NP characterization, and quantitative analysis.
