Sulfidation of metallic nanoparticles such as silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) released to the environment may be an important detoxification mechanism. Two types of AgNPs-an engineered polydisperse and aggregated AgNP powder, and a laboratory-synthesized, relatively monodisperse AgNP aqueous dispersion-were studied. The particles were sulfidized to varying degrees and characterized to determine the effect of initial AgNP polydispersity and aggregation state on AgNP sulfidation, and then exposed to… CONTINUE READING
