Due to their advantageous properties, their use has increased over the recent years in industrial and environmental applications and their impact can be significant. The environmental fate of nanoparticles is often complex however requiring detailed knowledge of their stability, chemistry, migration, accumulation and toxicity, whilst delivering superior performance in their intended functional capacity. A wide range of researchers from civil engineering, water science, geology, environmental science, chemistry, materials science and ecotoxicology are involved in this emerging multidisciplinary field. Nanomaterials and the Environment (NATE) exists to serve the needs of this diverse community, providing a forum for the prompt communication of original and innovative developments in nanomaterials and the environment, and in an effort to improve their utilisation and safety. NATE covers, but is not limited to, the development and use of nanoparticles, nanomaterials and nanocomposite devices in environmental applications for water, soil and air decontamination, as environmental monitoring devices, and their use in civil engineering and built environment applications. Moreover, NATE will also include contributions towards understanding the migration, disposal, toxicity and environmental regulation of nanomaterials, and advances in measurement and analytical technologies within environmental nanotechnology.”
