logo_dtuThe Technical University of Denmark, National Food Institute (DTU-Food) is a university institute covering safety and nutrition aspects of food components.

The Metals, Minerals and Nanoscience Group has high-level competences in the following areas:

  • Nanoparticle (NP) characterisation:
    • Size distribution, qualitative and quantitative determination by AFFF-MALS/DLS-ICP-MS (asymmetric flow field flow fractionation coupled to multi angle and dynamic light scattering as well as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry);
    • Number-based size distribution by ICP-MS in single particle mode
    • Imaging by SEM, TEM (scanning and transmission electron microscopy) and FIB-SEM (focused ion beam SEM)
  • Absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) in animal studies including localisation and in situ size determination of NPs in organs, tissues and organelles
  • Stability and dissolution of nanoparticles in synthetic or real biological environments
  • Bio-inorganic analytical chemistry of (organo)metallics following dissolution of NPs
