CRC1357 Microplastic Seminar

We are looking forward to our next guest Prof. Dr. Bernd Nowack from the Environmental Risk Assessment and Management Group, EMPA, ETH Zurich and his lecture: Modeling the release of plastic and microplastic to the environment. 13 June 2022 at 16:00 H18! and via ZOOM.  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

Interactions of microplastic particles with environmental components depend on their surface morphology and functionality. Here we present a home-build polariser which boosts the sensitivity of 129Xe NMR spectroscopic experiments by five orders of magnitude, turning 129Xe NMR spectroscopy into a promising technique for MP surface characterisation. Congratulation!  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication

In many cases, the sedimentation of MP is accelerated by aggreagtion with other substances. A major impact on the transport of MP is that the kinetics of aggregation are decisive in the formation of heteroaggregates from iron(oxy)hydroxides. Congratulations!  ...more

Insights CRC Microplastics Seminar

Nachverfolgung des Mikroplastik-Transports auf der Bodenoberfläche und an der Wasser-Sediment Grenze. Exklusive Einblicke in die aktuelle und interdisziplinäre Mikroplastikforschung.geben die SFB 1357 Mitglieder Jan-Pascal Boos und Dr. Hannes Laermanns in Ihrem Seminarvortrag am 16. Mai um 16:00 im H33.   ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

Most investigations of MP cytotoxicity use pristine and spherical particles. However, once in the environment, microplastic weather is very fast. Sharp-edged weathered MP induced broader adverse cellular reactions than new MP and stress the need for more realistic test particles. Congratulation!  ...more

New CRC 1357 press release:

How does flooding influence the abundance of microplastic in floodplains? New insights about how input pathways, spatial distribution, and local topography influence in the new CRC 1357 publication in Science of the Total Environment. Congratulation!  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

Microplastic extraction from environmental samples is a critical task in the analytical workflow from sampling to quantification. Unfortunately, some extraction methods also degrade microplastic. The new publication gives essential insights into best extraction practices. Congratulation!  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

How can the turnover of reactive solutes or small particulate substances like microplastic be described in the riparian zone? Here we present new insights into water source variation and mixing at a river's land–water interface. Congratulation!  ...more

Nanoplastic particles love company: New CRC 1357 Press Release

Polyethylene will be fragmented into nanoplastics as it degrades in the environment. However, these do not like to remain alone. They quickly attach themselves to larger colloidal systems that occur naturally in the environment.  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

The weathering of plastics by sunlight is significantly involved in the formation of microplastics. With a new method based on NMR spectroscopy, this can now be described in more detail. Congratulations!  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

The residence time of microplastics in a lake depends decisively on its sinking speed. With the help of laboratory experiments and flow models, the parameters that influence this could be systematically investigated. This makes it possible for the first time to predict the exposure times of organisms. Congratulations!  ...more

Collaborative Research Centre 1357 Microplastics

The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1357: "Microplastics - Understanding the mechanisms and processes of biological effects, transport and formation: From model to complex systems as a basis for new solutions" investigates the formation, migration and effects of microplastics and develops new approaches to solving this immense environmental problem.
