Abstract: The use of nanotechnology-based products is constantly increasing and there are concerns about the fate and effect on the aquatic environment of antimicrobial products such as silver nanoparticles (AgNP). By combining different characterization techniques (asymmetric flow field-flow fractionation, single particle ICP-MS, UV-VIS) we show that it is possible to assess in detail the agglomeration process of AgNP in artificial seawater. In particular we show that the presence of alginate or humic acid differentially affects the kinetic of the agglomeration process. This study provides an experimental methodology for the in-depth analysis of the fate and behaviour of silver nanoparticles in the aquatic environment.
