Nano-H SAS, specialized in the engineering and production of marketable hybrid multifunctional nanoparticles, will design new vectors dedicated to water flows. It will consist of controlled fluorescent silica particles which are biodegradable and stable over months. The fluorescent dye will exhibit a specific signature that will enable the tracking of the particles through soil media. Their characterization will be performed by Zeta potential, DLS and TEM, and the detection and monitoring will be performed by UV-vis spectroscopy.
