Special Symposium

Multifunctional, high-performance nanomaterials and nanocomposites are making major inroads into many industries including electronics, construction, automotive, consumer goods, and textiles. However, research indicates that nanoparticles, the very constituent that enhances the high performance in these materials, may be harmful to human health and the environment. Such fear could present a roadblock to commercialization of nanotechnology. Current research on health and environmental effects of nanoparticles focuses on exposure during the manufacturing process. However, the release of nanoparticles from their final products potentially poses greater risks due to the large volume of these materials that could be exposed in-service and after service.

This symposium will address the characterization, mechanism, and modeling of nanoparticles released from their products during service (including environmental exposure, fire, and mechanical erosion) and post service (including disposal in landfills and recyling). The symposium will include keynote speakers, oral presentation and posters dealing with nanoparticle release from nanomaterials (including, but not limited to, nanodevices, nanocoatings, nanosensors, and colloids) and nanocomposites (including inorganic and polymer matrices). Characterization of the released nanoparticles includes rate of release, chemical composition, size, and morphology. The symposium will also cover papers on degradation and degradation mechanisms of nanomaterials and nanocomposites during service and post service. Studies on nanoparticles released during combustion of all materials (i.e., macro sizes) are also suitable for this symposium.
