One target of development and application of TiO(2) nanoparticles (nano-TiO(2) ) is photochemical degradation of contaminants and photo-killing of microbes and fouling organisms. However, few ecotoxicological studies have focused on this aspect of nano-TiO(2) , specifically whether this photoreactivity might significantly increase hazard and risk of the materials in the natural environment. In the present study, we evaluated acute phototoxicity of nano-TiO(2) under simulated solar radiation… CONTINUE READING
