Nanoparticles have the potential to tackle environmental problems, but their growing use could also raise concerns about health and persistence in the environment. The EU-funded iCore project plans to develop advanced imaging technologies to investigate the physical and chemical properties of aluminium nano matrix composites in complex polymer matrices. Major focus will be placed on creating a model characterising and predicting the impact of nanomaterials on brain health. New methodologies will be provided to evaluate changes in nanomaterial morphology, chemical composition and reactivity when embedded to homogeneous matrices.
