Phototoxicity of CdSe/ZnSe quantum dots with surface coatings of 3-mercaptopropionic acid or tri-n-octylphosphine oxide/gum arabic in Daphnia magna under environmentally relevant UV-B light.


The potential ecotoxicological consequences about semiconductor crystal nanoparticles (NPs) are a growing concern. However, our understanding of the mechanism of toxicity in NPs is very limited, especially under varying environmental conditions such as ultraviolet (UV) light. We performed an in vivo study employing Daphnia magna to evaluate the mechanism… (More)
