NanoFARM researchers collaborate to measure in situ dissolution rates for Cu-based fungicides in wetland mesocosm

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon, University of Kentucky, and Aveiro University show that Cu(OH)2 and CuO NPs dissolve in a freshwater wetland mesocosm is a few days to a week.  This provides insight into the time scale for selected fate processes to occur prior to their ocmplete dissolution, e.g. heteroaggregation and settling into the sediment layer.
