The risk of nanoparticles (NPs) to organisms and the environment has become more noticeable alongside their rapid applications in many fields. The release of Cd(2+) from CdTe-based NPs (CdTe-NPs), an important class of engineered nanomaterials, is one of the possible factors responsible for the cytotoxicity of these NPs. Based on the same CdTe core, CdTe/CdS, CdTe/ZnS and CdTe/SiO(2) NPs were synthesized and their Cd(2+) release rates were carefully studied based on dialysis using inductively… CONTINUE READING
