We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission (EC) has developed a new Certified Reference Material (CRM) for nanoparticle size analysis. The CRM (ERM-FD101b) is a suspension of silica nanoparticles of nominally 85 nm in diameter in an aqueous solution and has been developed to support the implementation of the EC nanomaterial definition.
The Joint Research Centre Geel (JRC-Geel), Directorate G. Nuclear Safety and Security, released a new 242Pu isotopic spike certified reference material (CRM), IRMM-049e, applied for determination of plutonium content in nuclear materials by isotope dilution mass spectrometry (IDMS) in nuclear safeguards, nuclear security and in the industry.
