Nanomaterial-biosystem interaction is emerging as a major concern hindering wide adoption of nanomaterials. Using quantum dots (Qdots) of different sizes (Qdot-440nm and Qdot-680nm) as a model system, we studied the effects of polyethylene glycol (PEG) thin-layer surface modification in attenuating Qdot-related cytotoxicity, genotoxicity perturbation and… CONTINUE READING
