Abstract

Methods for the detection and quantification of micro and nano-plastics- A Review

Author(s): Priyanka S.

Plastics are synthetic or semi-synthetic polymers that are widely used across multiple fields due to their low cost, versatility, durability over the past 35 years. Plastics have proved to be a boon to mankind. However, overuse of non- biodegradable plastics comes with its own downsides. Despite constant efforts to reuse and recycle plastics, these polymers substantially contribute towards the accumulation of debris hazardous to the environment. Plastic materials are slowly broken into fragments of micro- and nano plastics due to aging and weathering. Micro nano plastics were found capable of entering the food chain and hence are viewed as threats. This review paper revolves around methods used for the detection and quantification of Micro nano plastics. Detection of Micro nano plastics using methods like Raman spectroscopy, Infrared Spectroscopy, SERS, MALDI-TOF, and machine learning approach are discussed in this review. The research efforts carried out in this article aims to further facilitate the R&D initiatives of Jozbiz Technologies.
