Special Issue Introduction
The presence of nanomaterials in the environment is not a recent development. Early applications included their use in ceramic reinforcement and dye production. However, their wide applications and multiple uses -nowadays- have generated an increase in engineered nanomaterials in environmental compartments. About 7% of global production is considered to find its way into the aquatic systems (Keller et al., 2013). Nanomaterials encompass a great number of compounds with different compositions, chemical structures, physicochemical characteristics, and toxicity. Consequently, there is a growing concern about how nanoparticles disperse, interact with aquatic species, and induce toxic effects. In response to these open questions and information gaps, nanotoxicology is focused on the toxic effects of nanomaterials, and various approaches and strategies have been employed. In this webinar, we are going to provide an overview of different techniques, case studies, and approaches aimed at assessing the environmental impact of nanomaterials.
