Simple method to measure microplastic concentration

Current techniques for measuring nano/ microplastic (N/MP) concentrations in soil require the soil organic matter content to be separated and have limited resolution for analysing N/MPs sized <1 µm. Researchers have developed a simple method to measure N/MP concentration in different soil types using spectroscopy at two wavelengths. This method does not require the soil to be separated in order to detect the N/MPs and can accurately quantify N/MPs regardless of their size. Read More
