Abstract Given increasing use of copper-based nanomaterials, particularly in applications with direct release, it is imperative to understand their human and ecological risks. A comprehensive and systematic approach was used to determine toxicity and fate of several Cu nanoparticles (Cu NPs). When used as pesticides in agriculture, Cu NPs effectively control pests. However, even at low (5–20 mg Cu/plant) doses, there are metabolic effects due to the accumulation of Cu and generation of reactive… CONTINUE READING
