Title Moving beyond Mass: The Unmet Need to Consider Dose Metrics in Environmental Nanotoxicology Studies.
Publication Date 2012
Media Count 3p
Personal Author A. J. Kennedy C. Detzel M. Hull M. A. Chappell P. Vikesland
Abstract The field of nanotechnology has rapidly developed due to recognition that nanoscale particles often exhibit properties that differ substantially from comparable bulk phases. Given this fact it is unfortunate that the environmental nanotoxicology community continues to rely heavily upon mass-based dosemetrics. To truly evaluate if nanoscale particles elicit toxicological responses that differ from those of bulk phases then alternative dose-metrics must be simultaneously considered.
