Bioaccumulation and biological effects of cigarette litter in marine worms
The results illustrate the vulnerability of organisms in the water column to smoking debris and associated toxicants, and highlight the risks posed by smoked cigarette filter debris to aquatic life.
Dissolution and bandgap paradigms for predicting the toxicity of metal oxide nanoparticles in the marine environment: an in vivo study with oyster embryos
Bio-imaging identified potential cellular storage-disposal sites of solid particles that could ameliorate the toxicological behavior of non-dissolving NPs, whilst abiotic screening of surface reactivity suggested that the adsorption-complexation of surface active sites by seawater ions could provide a valuable hypothesis to explain the quenching of the intrinsic oxidation potential of MnO2 NPs in seawater.
Ecotoxicological assessment of nanoparticle-containing acrylic copolymer dispersions in fairy shrimp and zebrafish embryos
Results illustrate how CRS microscopy can be used to investigate the bioaccumulation of organic nanomaterials, provided that they induce hyperspectral profiles distinct from the biological samples.
Mitigating effect of organic matter on the in vivo toxicity of metal oxide nanoparticles in the marine environment
Major constituents of seawater, i.e. ions and natural organic matter (NOM), can influence the environmental and toxicological behaviour of nanoparticles (NPs) in aquatic systems. By
