Nano Toxicology

Nanotoxicology is the combinational study of the toxicity of nanomaterials.  Due to quantum size effects and large surface area to volume ratio, nanomaterials have distinct properties compared with their larger counterparts. Nanotoxicology is a branch of bionanoscience which includes the study and application of toxicity of nanomaterials. Nanomaterials, even when prepared of inert elements like gold, become highly active at nanometer dimensions. Nanotoxicological studies are planned to determine whether and to what level these properties may pose a risk to the environment and to human beings.  For example, Diesel nanoparticles have been studied to harm the cardiovascular system in a mouse model.
