Environmental Health Sciences at Birmingham has its own modern laboratories housing an extensive range of state-of-the art analytical instrumentation all available for 'hands-on' use by our research students, including: - Atmospheric particle counters and size fractionating devices - Aquatic colloid fractionating and sizing devices (flow and sedimentation FFF, SPLITT, CFUF) - Atomic force microscopes and Scanning near-field optical microscope - Aerosol Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer - Carbon analyser - CO, SO2, O3, and NO/NO2/NOx analysers - Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry Systems, one with negative and positive chemical ionisation facilities, and one interfaced with a thermal desorption system to facilitate VOC determination - HPLC-MS/MS system - 2 atomic absorption spectrometers - Ion chromatography - Solvent Evaporation Equipment (inlcuding Accelerated solvent extractor (ASE); TurboVAP automated solvent evaporator; TracePrep automated solid phase extraction system) - Facility for Environmental Nanoparticle Analysis and Characterisation (FENAC)
Nanoscience is the science at the nanoscale, where 'nano' refers to processes that occur on the size range between 1 and 100 nm. Environmental Nanoscience research at the University of Birmingham focuses on understanding reactivity at the nanoscale, particularly where this influences the environmental fate and behaviour of nanomaterials. The group studies many aspects of the interactions of nanomaterials with pollutants and biota, biomineralisation processes, and the behaviour of manufactured and natural nanoparticles in the environment.
