The advantages and challenges of integrating the methods of life-cycle assessment and risk assessment are discussed in terms of the objectives for evaluating nanotechnologies in a safe and sustainable way.
This Progress Article reviews recent developments in analytical methods used for nanomaterial analysis and highlights opportunities for methods used in environmental toxicology to be applied in human toxicology and vice versa.
Using antibody-conjugated gold nanoparticles and a suite of techniques, the spatial location and type of protein binding sites across biomolecular coronas formed on the surface of nanoparticles are identified.
