Nanoparticle Release from Polymer Nanocomposites Used for Potable Water Infrastructure and Food Packaging: Current Progress & Beyond

, , , , ,
Engineered nanoparticles (ENP) are increasingly being integrated into polymeric infrastructure and food packaging materials worldwide. ENPs can improve product strength, extend infrastructure service life, and increase a polymer’s antimicrobial resistance and oxygen barrier properties. While [...]

Assessment of comparative toxicity of nano- and microparticles of magnetite

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Assessment of toxicity of 10 nm, 50 nm and 1 um Fe3O4 particles based on shift in the cell population of the broncho-alveolar lavage fluid after their intratracheal instillation into lungs of rats and on [...]

Molecular Effects of Silicon Dioxide Nanoparticles on Cell Survival Signaling of Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) Neurons and Schwann Cells

, , , , , , , , ,
The molecular mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of peripheral neuropathies have not been fully elucidated. To meet the need for suitable cell culture models in vitro of peripheral nervous system (PNS) neural cells that allow long-term [...]
