Exploring the Depths of Plastic Pollution and Nanoparticle Dynamics 🌊

Venturing into the intricate realm of plastic pollution and nanoparticle behavior, I unravel the mysteries behind their environmental transformation. From dissecting the impact of UV exposure and oxidation to understanding the effects of mechanical stress, I delve into the intricate journey of plastics breaking down into micro and nanoplastics.

My current research thrust revolves around crafting a finely tuned model of nanoplastics within a liquid environment, mirroring the complexities of real-world pollutants. With a keen eye on the biodegradability of bioplastics and the nuanced interactions between nanomaterials and persistent organic pollutants, I'm driven to illuminate the path toward sustainable solutions.

Eager to contribute to the ever-evolving landscape of environmental science and nanotechnology, I invite you to join me in navigating this captivating intersection where innovation meets environmental stewardship. Let's embark on a journey of discovery together! 🌱🔬
