Latest Environmental impact of nanotechnology Stories
In experiments mimicking a natural environment, Duke University researchers have demonstrated that the silver nanoparticles used in many consumer products can have an adverse effect on plants and microorganisms.
Scientists have, for the first time, traced the nanoparticles taken up from the soil by crop plants and analyzed the chemical states of their metallic elements.
- The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
