The DMA-APM technique has been applied to realtime structure characterization of airborne carbon nanofibers. The effective densities of the carbon nanofibers decreased with increasing mobility diameter, indicating that they have an increasing overall void with increasing mobility size. The results showed that it is important to characterize the structures of airborne materials used for toxicology studies because structure may affect toxicology and does affect transport rates.
