Review of analytical methods for the measurement of nanoparticle size distribution
JRC scientists evaluated the availability of appropriate analytical methods urgently needed for the detection, quantification and characterisation of nanomaterials in consumer products. Such methods are not only important in the safety testing of nanomaterials but also for implementation of labelling requirements.

The authors conclude that current instrumental techniques providing size distributions have advantages and drawbacks, with the result that there is no single technique at present that can by itself provide a robust analytical method for the purpose of implementing upcoming legislation referring to the definition of nanomaterials.
