Silver nanoparticles (Ag(NP)) are widely utilized in increasing number of medical and consumer products due to their antibacterial properties. Once released to aquatic system, Ag(NP) undergoes oxidative dissolution leading to production of toxic Ag(+). Dissolved Ag(+) can have a severe impact on various organisms, including indigenous microbial communities, fungi, alga, plants, vertebrates, invertebrates, and human cells. Therefore, it is important to investigate fate of Ag(NP) and determine… CONTINUE READING
