It is inevitable that carbon nanotubes (CNTs) will be released to and widely dispersed in environmental ecosystems, given their numerous expected applications. Determination of their potential for bioaccumulation by ecological receptors is thus critical. Previous, research involving several different terrestrial and benthic organisms has indicated that CNTs spiked to soils or sediments do not bioaccumulate. Conversely, we report here distinctly different uptake and depuration behaviors for an… CONTINUE READING
