Baoshan Xing, professor of environmental and soil chemistry in the Stockbridge School of Agriculture, is one of the editors of “Engineered Nanoparticles and the Environment: Biophysicochemical Processes and Toxicity,” which is being released this month by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
The volume details the source, release, exposure, adsorption, aggregation, bioavailability, transport, transformation and modeling of engineered nanoparticles found in many common products and applications. The book covers synthesis, environmental application, detection and characterization of engineered nanoparticles and details the toxicity and risk assessment of engineered nanoparticles. The work includes topics on the transport, transformation and modeling of engineered nanoparticles and presents the latest developments and knowledge of engineered nanoparticles.
The other editors are Chad D. Vecitis, Harvard University, and Nicola Senesi, professor emeritus at the University of Bari in Italy.
