Research Abstract:
These particles were collected during a health and safety assessment at a metal refinery. Included in this work was a full assessment and characterization of the ambient aerosols. Silver nanoparticles were collected from ambient air during the melting and refinement of silver. Many of the nanoparticles contained other trace metallic substances including zinc, titanium, selenium and lead. Particle number concentrations exceeded 10^7 particles/cc near the melting furnaces.  less info
