Quantitative assessment and characterisation of airborne engineered nanoparticles

Majd Faghihi, Ehsan (2015) Quantitative assessment and characterisation of airborne engineered nanoparticles. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This research has brought new scientific insight into the characteristics of airborne engineered nanoparticles, which is essential when considering their effects on human health. The key findings of the work were a harmonised and traceable protocol for the size characterisation of engineered nanoparticles, and quantification of their emissions and dynamics in workplaces. The novelty of this project is in coupling a comprehensive experimental measurement approach with innovative and effective data interpretation. Also, for the first time, the existence of a general trend in the emission of nanoparticles from a nanotechnology process was investigated.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
