The powerful antibacterial properties of engineered silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have, in recent years, led to a great increase in their use in consumer products such as textiles and personal care products offers. This widespread and often indiscriminate use of nano-silver is inevitably increasing the probability that such materials be accidentally or deliberately lost into the environment. Once present in the environment the normally useful antibacterial properties of the silver may instead… CONTINUE READING
