Nanotoxicology: Seeing the trees for the forest.

Cadmium-containing semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) can be tailored and tuned for specific applications in imaging, medicine, electronics, and other fields. They can vary in size, coatings, functionalization, chemical content, and surface charge, and as applications proliferate, so does the number of unique QD types. There are hundreds of in vitro studies… CONTINUE READING
