Insight into chemical changes during nanoplastics degradation in aquatic environment

Project Details


Project to have access to the Swiss Light Source (SLS) facilities in Switzerland. The SLS at the Paul Scherrer Institut is a third-generation synchrotron light source. The goal of the experiments is to use the scanning transmission X-ray microscopy (STXM) to investigate the chemical changes of nanoplastics degraded under environmental like conditions.
