ASTM WK37716

    New Test Method for NanoParticle Analysis and Characterization by TEM

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D22.07 | Committee D22 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    To outline standardized analysis procedures to identify, characterize and quantify nanoparticles in air samples.

    Though still in its early stages nanotechnology is generating keen interest and also concerns about health effects. There is a growing need for standardized methods for the analysis and characterization of nanoparticles and to test the efficacy of exposure controls.


    Titanium Oxide, Zinc Oxide, Particle Size Analysis, Particle Size Distribution, Circularity

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
