Abstract

There are significant challenges in assessing the toxicity of nanoparticles in the environment in which effective methods for detection are crucial. An inexpensive method that uses superhydrophobic well with an evaporating droplet followed by a simple squeeze flow is described here and found to provide practical high nanoparticle collection from samples for detection. The process could be hastened by placing a radiant heater close to the droplet if temperature rises in the sample can be tolerated.
