Engineered nanomaterials advance manufacturing processes supporting the growth of new and competitive technologies. The health effects of the 38,000 tons of nanoparticles that are produced annually remain uncertain, in large part, because nanoparticles spontaneously accumulate biofilm that enhances contaminant binding and delivery. Emerging analytical tools are continuously developed to elucidate the complex interaction among nanoparticles, biomolecules, and biological systems. The purpose of this session is to highlight the role of analytical chemistry in supporting and improving the development of safe nanomaterials.
