Nanoparticles taking shape as a useful tool for a wide range variety of biomedical, consumer and instrumental applications that include drug delivery systems, biosensors and environmental sensors. Nanotoxicology is the study of the toxicity of nanomaterials to better understand and assess the health risks involved in the usage of nanoparticles. The physicochemical properties of nanoparticles, such as small size, large surface area and flexible chemical composition/structure that favour their use in nanomedicine, have also been found to contribute to their enhanced toxicological side effects.
