Behaviour of natural aquatic nanoparticles in a split-flow thin-cell (SPLITT) system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A split-flow thin-cell (SPLITT) system in different operating modes was used to size fractionate colloids and particles in a lake water. The unperturbed lake water sample and eluent fractions (nominally a1 mum) were analysed with atomic force microscopy (AFM) to assess the quality of the separation, in particular to quantify the contamination of the b (>1 mum) fraction with nanocolloids (defined here as material
