UMass Amherst environmental chemist flashes warning light on new nanoparticle

In a cover story in Small, Baoshan Xing of UMass Amherst and colleagues report on toxicity for layered BP in three cell lines. They found disruption of cell membrane integrity related to particle size, concentration- and cell-type-dependent cytotoxicity IMAGE: A schematic diagram illustrating mechanisms of BP toxicity, which include disruption of cell membrane integrity related to layered BP particle size and generation of reactive oxygen species.
