Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearch


Due to their small size and high surface-to-volume ratio, the properties and reactivity of NPs are different from those of their bulk forms. However, these properties might cause different behaviour and effects in the environment and investigations of possible nano specific effects are thus highly relevant. Investigation of the long-term effects of CuO NPs on growth, mortality and precopulation of Hyalella azteca compared to CuCl2 and to further examine possible delayed effects and ability to recover from Cu exposure.
