In parallel with the growing use of nanoparticle-containing products, their release into the environment over the coming years is expected to increase significantly. With many large population centers located in near-coastal areas, and increasing evidence that various nanoparticles may be toxic to a range of organisms, biota in estuarine and coastal waters may be particularly vulnerable. While size effects may be important in cases, silver nanoparticles have been found to be toxic in large part… CONTINUE READING
