Abstract english

The one-hour workshop, containing both a demonstration and hands-on experiments on the topic of nanosafety, is based on current science on a topic of general interest. The workshop aims to provide a deeper knowledge and understanding of nanoparticles. The participants get an introduction to what nanoparticles are, why nanosized materials are interesting, how nanomaterials interact with biological molecules, and potential risks associated with nanoparticles. Furthermore, by participating in the workshop the audience gains insights into how research about nanoparticles is conducted. The participants carry out experiments to demonstrate that daily-used plastic products can be disintegrated into particles in the nanometer size range, which may have important implications for the environment.
