In this special issue, we invited primary scientists on the leading edge in this field with recent high impact research works to share their expertise and perspectives. The collected papers cover various topics, such as the measurement and characteristics of engineered nanoparticles in the environment, toxicities of nanoparticles to organisms, complex behaviors of nanoparticles with contaminants in the environment, and fate, transformation, and transport of nanoparticles in the environment.
