Ecotoxicological effects of nanoparticles (NP) are still poorly documented while their commercialization for industrial and household applications increases. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of physicochemical characteristics on metal oxide NP and carbon nanotubes toxicological effects toward bacteria. Two strains of bacteria, Cupriavidus metallidurans CH34 and Escherichia coli MG1655 were exposed to TiO(2) or Al(2)O(3) NP or to multiwalled-carbon nanotubes (MWCNT… CONTINUE READING
