Project Description

The goal of this project is to address essential gaps in knowledge about how soil properties, soil organic and inorganic constituents as well as properties and concentration of manufactured nanomaterials (MNMs) affect the spatial and temporal behaviour of nanopesticides and nanofertilizers in soils.This project is also focused on the training of researchers in advanced analytical techniques that allow an efficient  characterization of MNMs in various matrices.
