||Nanoparticle dermal absorption and toxicity: A review of the literature
||Oct. 2009, Vol.82, No.9, p.1043-1055. 106 ref.
||The article reviews the literature on the percutaneous absorption of nanoparticles and their effect on skin. It highlights the important knowledge gaps and research needs in areas including: health and environmental impact; life cycle of nanoparticles; exposure routes; behaviour of nanoparticles in the body; risk for workers. Data on titanium dioxide are inconsistent, data on carbon-based nanoparticles are limited and data on metal-based nanoparticles are rare.
