With the growing availability and use of copper-based nanomaterials (Cu-NMs), there is increasing concern regarding their release and potential impact on the environment. In this study, the short-term (/=135 d), their fates are dictated by the soil properties, are independent of the initial Cu form, and are likely to present minimal risk of nanospecific Cu-NM impact in the soil environment for the concentration studied here.
