Abstract: Silver nanoparticles (nAg) are widely used as antimicrobial agents in medical and consumer products and represent a potential threat to natural environments. This research was designed to assess the effect of solution chemistry on the fate and transport of nAg in groundwater systems. The effects of pH, ionic strength and dissolved oxygen (DO) on nAg transport, retention and dissolution k... read more
