Nanomaterials Ecotoxicology

A Case Study with Nanosilver

Alan J. Kennedy, Steve Diamond, Jacob K. Stanley, Jessica Coleman, Jeffery A. Steevens, Mark A. Chappell, Jennifer Laird and Amy Bednar

Intensive environmental health and safety (EHS) reviews on methodology, research needs, and toxicological endpoints are available for the general field of nanotoxicology and specifically for nanosilver. Rather than replicate such efforts, the intent of this chapter was to provide conceptual examples of how to integrate diverse aquatic ecotoxicology data and methodologies to inform screening level toxicological estimations in attempt to overcome differences in experimental methods and persistent knowledge gaps. The EHS screening of a nanoparticle ...
