    • Dissolution Kinetics and Solubility of ZnO Nanoparticles Followed by AGNES 

      David, Calin; Galceran i Nogués, Josep; Rey Castro, Carlos; Puy Llorens, Jaume; Companys Ferran, Encarnació; Salvador, José; Monné Esquerda, Josep; Wallace, Rachel; Vakourov, Alex (American Chemical Society, 2012)
      There is a current debate on whether the toxicity of engineered ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) can be traced back to their nanoscale properties or rather to the simple fact of their relatively high solubility and consequent ...
    • Systematic Investigation of the Physicochemical Factors That Contribute to the Toxicity of ZnO Nanoparticles 

      Mu, Qingshan; David, Calin; Galceran i Nogués, Josep; Rey Castro, Carlos; Krzemiński, Łukasz; Wallace, Rachel; Bamiduro, Faith; Milne, Steven J.; Hondow, Nicole S.; Brydson, Rik; Vizcay-Barrena, Gema; Routledge, Michael N.; Jeuken, Lars J. C.; Brown, Andy P. (American Chemical Society, 2014)
      ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) are prone to dissolution, and uncertainty remains whether biological/cellular responses to ZnO NPs are solely due to the release of Zn2+ or whether the NPs themselves have additional toxic effects. ...
    • The chronic toxicity of ZnO nanoparticles and ZnCl2 to Daphnia magna and the use of different methods to assess nanoparticle aggregation and dissolution. 

      Adam, Nathalie; Schmitt, Claudia; Galceran i Nogués, Josep; Companys Ferran, Encarnació; Vakourov, Alex; Wallace, Rachel; Knapen, Dries; Blust, Ronny (Taylor & Francis, 2014-11)
      In this study, the effect of ZnO nanoparticles and ZnCl2 on growth, reproduction and accumulation of Daphnia magna was determined in a 21 day chronic toxicity test. Different techniques were used to distinguish between the ...
