The use of nanomaterials is rapidly increasing, while little is known about their possible ecotoxicological effects. This work investigates the toxic effects of silver (Ag) and gold (Au) nanoparticles on rainbow trout hepatocytes. In addition to toxicity assessment the particles were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA). Hepatocyte primary cultures were exposed to Au and Ag nanoparticles, with and without dissolved organic carbon (DOC… CONTINUE READING
