Assessing the risk and consequence of engineered nano-scale zinc oxide in phytological and bacterial systems

Abstract:

With the increased usage and production of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs), entry into the environment and hence contact with plant root systems is inevitable. Nano zinc oxide (nZnO) is widely used in commercial products, such as sunscreens, paints and coatings due to its high antimicrobial properties and wide electrical band-gap. Disposal down drains and into greywater leads to particle entry into the environment via waste water systems. Here, ENPs could potentially interact with plant...
