Agilent Technologies has presented its latest Thought Leader Award to Arturo Keller, director of the Center for the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, US. Agilent's Thought Leader program promotes fundamental scientific advances by contributing financial support, products and expertise to the research of influential thought leaders in the life sciences and chemical analysis.

Keller is being recognized for his research into the uptake, accumulation and biotransformation of nanoparticles in natural waters and soil. The award will include the latest LC/ICP/MS and LC/MS/MS systems from Agilent, which Keller will use to develop new analytical methods for understanding the efficacy and environmental impact of emerging nanoparticle delivery methods for fertilizers, nutrients, pesticides and herbicides.

'We are proud to grant the Agilent Thought Leader Award to Dr Arturo Keller and honored to collaborate with such a world-renowned scientist in the area of nanoparticle research,' said Sue Strong, Agilent vice president and executive sponsor of this award. 'Through our partnership with Dr Keller, we will be able to support important research that will improve crop yields and quality through the use of nanoparticle delivery systems for essential nutrients, pesticides and herbicides. The results of this research will help ensure a clean environment for future generations.'

'The Agilent Thought Leader award will provide my research team with leading-edge analytical instrumentation to better understand the potential benefits and implications of nanotechnology in agricultural systems, particularly the interaction between nanoparticles and a wide range of natural or novel organic chemicals,' said Keller. 'I expect our research team will be able to make significant contributions to the safe and sustainable introduction of nanotechnology in this vital application.'
