New testing finds synergistic combination leads to toxicity in nanomaterials

from Phys.Org

A new study finds reason for caution — a clear emergence of toxicity — in nanomaterial product formulations, but it also provides an early testing technique that could help the industry continue to move forward. In a surprise discovery, University of Oregon chemists and Oregon State University toxicologists found that biocompatible gold nanoparticles and widely used surfactants — each previously considered safe as individual components — become toxic to zebrafish embryos as they combine in a synergistic way. more
