Characterization of substances in nanoscale as a basis for their assessment under Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH)

Project number: F 2261 Institution: Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) Status: Completed Project


Literature research considering the available information for physical chemical characterization of nanomaterials. Evaluating which physical chemical methods listed in Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 can be applied to substances in nanoscale. Evaluating which of the physical chemical data of substances in microscale can be transferred to substances in nanoscale. Identification of systematic differences concerning substances in nanoscale and microscale. Identification of additional physical chemical methods which are necessary to characterize nanomaterials. These methods should satisfy international standards to be accplicable under the REACH Regulation.
