2nd Workshop on Field-Flow Fractionation – Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS)
Definition and Analysis


September 25th & 26th 2014, Vienna, Austria

Organized by University of Vienna, Austria & The German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BFG), Germany

Supported by the the “EU COST action ENTER”

Scope of the Workshop


After a successful 1st FFF-MS workshop in 2013 with almost 30 attendees a 2nd FFF-MS workshop is planned focusing on analytical demands in terms of definition and regulation of engineered nanomaterials.
In light of recent events the 2nd Workshop on Field Flow Fractionation (FFF) and Mass Spectrometric techniques will focus on the analysis of engineered nanomaterials against the background of definition and regulation.


Part I (first day – free of charge) will start with 2-3 survey lectures given by experts in the field. They will focus on definition and regulation of ENMs and will conclude on analytical demands. Scientific presentations will complete the morning session. During the afternoon session attendees will solve problems regarding data processing and analytical method development.


Part II of the workshop (second day – 280 €) is optional and will contain practical lab work. The University of Vienna (Environmental Geosciences) has several FFF systems (flow and centrifugal) and on-line coupled detectors (e.g., SLS, DLS, ICP-MS) available where users can collect practical experience and further discuss existing problems (restricted to: 10 participants).

1st Workshop on Field-Flow Fractionation – Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS)
Challenges &
Solutions

September 26th & 27th 2013, Vienna, Austria

Summery available now: link

Organized by University of Vienna, Austria & The German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BFG), Germany

Supported by the the “EU COST action ENTER”

Scope of the Workshop


The workshop addresses users and manufacturers and focuses mainly on Field-Flow Fractionation (FFF) techniques coupled to mass spectrometry applied to engineered nanomaterials in all kind of matrices. The workshop will be organized in cooperation between the University of Vienna (Department of Environmental Geosciences) and the Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG, Department G2 - Aquatic Chemistry, Koblenz, Germany). The two days’ workshop will be held in Vienna and will be subdivided in two parts:

Day I (free of charge) gives an introductionto the field of FFF; however, the focal point will be put on presentations from users containing “issues not unraveled yet”.
Day II (registration fee 280€) is optional and will contain practical lab work. At the University of Vienna (Environmental Geosciences) several FFF and hyphenated detectors (e.g., SLS, DLS, ICP-MS) are available.

Field Flow Fractionation workshop
(organized by EC 7th FP NanoLyse project partners)

April 17th – 19th 2013
Organized by University of Vienna, Austria & DTU Copenhagen, Denmark

Within the framework of the European project NanoLyse methods to detect and quantify organic and inorganic nanoparticles in different food matrices have been developed. As a result of the project the application of the analytical techniques and the developed methods are summarized in standard operation procedures. In order to provide information to potential stakeholders a workshop will be organized which addresses inorganic nanoparticle analysis using field flow fractionation hyphenated to multiple detectors.

SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP
The workshop is designed to provide hands on laboratory experience on asymmetric field flow field fractionation (AF4) and it is intended primarily to FFF system users from various institutions covering industry and university sector with focus on nanoparticle characterization. In the course of seminars and hands on training in our laboratories we will demonstrate the concept of method development for nanoparticles in complex matrices. The workshop focuses on:

1. Sample preparation for the isolation of nanoparticles from the matrix
2. Optimization of FFF run conditions for size fractionation and
3. Calibration for particle detection and quantification

The workshop emphasizes the method development for characterization and quantification of nanoparticles in food. Silver nanoparticles in chicken meat and silica nanoparticles in tomato soup will be used as two representative examples.

Workshop on Aquatic Nanoscience & Nanotechnology
- bridging environmental nanosciences and nanotoxicology -


December 9th – 11th 2007, Vienna, Austria
organized by the working group „Aquatic Nanoscience and Nanotechnology“ in the German Waterchemical Society and the Department of Environmental Geosciences

The rapid development of nanotechnology raised concerns about possible impacts of engineered nanoparticles on human health and the environment.
In environmental and geosciences the investigation of natural colloids (nanoparticles) and processes in the nanoscale is a research topic for nearly three decades. One mayor gap in knowledge is the behavior and fate of engineered nanoparticles in the environment and the detection and characterization in natural aquatic systems and laboratory experiments. It is the scope of this workshop to bring together experts from environmental nanosciences, nano(eco)toxicology and nanotechnology to present the state of the art in their disciplines and intensify cross-border discussion and information flow.
