Characterization of TiO2 Nanoparticle Release from Fabrics By Single Particle ICP-MS

SP-ICP-MS to detect TiO2 nanoparticle release


In the textile industry, the use of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles (NPs) is increasing due to their ability to provide UV protection, increase the hydrophilic nature of fabrics, provide antibacterial characteristics, and reduce odors. This work demonstrates the ability of PerkinElmer's NexION® Single Particle ICP-MS with Syngistix Nano Application Software Module to both detect and measure TiO2 nanoparticles released from textiles.
