Adriaan Markus carries out research into engineered nanoparticles. These are deliberately produced particles with a size of 100 nm or less in at least one dimension. Because of their small size, the relative surface area of these particles is very large. As most chemical reactions occur at the surface, this makes them more reactive than larger particles. Another aspect is that at these dimensions quantum effects start to play a role. Markus investigates the distribution of engineered nanoparticles in the aquatic environment, that is, the release of nanoparticles into surface waters via wastewater and runoff from arable land and urban areas, their transport, and their eventual fate in water and sediment.
