Scrutinization of Nanoparticles as Potential Toxins

Ayesha Kausar

Abstract


This article offers toxicology effects related to nanoparticles. The nanoparticles including nanocarbon have been used as technological tools, however may cause harmful effects on biosystems and environment. The toxic effects are dependent on several factors such as size, shape, surface area, morphology, and chemical nature. Owing to nanosize, these particles may enter living systems, tissues, microcells, and blood stream. They can interact with living systems, so causing damage in different ways. Consequently, these nanoparticles may harm the normal functioning of biological structures and systems. The main aim of this paper is to highlight the toxic effects, potential hazards, and possible remedies for future advancements in this field.
