Influence of the zeta potential on the sorption and toxicity of iron oxide nanoparticles on S. cerevisiae and E. coli.


The influence of the zeta potential on the sorption between microorganisms (Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Escherichia coli) and iron oxide nanoparticles is demonstrated in a model salt solution at two different pH-values. There was only a 1% survival rate of E. coli (4.5 x 10(7)cells/mL) in the presence of 24 mg/L nanoparticulate iron oxide at pH 4. S… (More)
