Study of Titanium nanoparticles in biological system using different techniques
Nanotechnology is a promising field of science and technology that deals with the effects of engineered or manufactured nanomaterial and their applications on living organisms. In addition to toxicity evaluation, these particles were characterized by different techniques like transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA). Titanium nanoparticle was within the small nanometer size range when dispersed in pure water. The particles were tended to agglomerate in media with higher ionic strength. The assessments of cytotoxicity showed that Ti nanoparticles caused a significant lessening in membrane integrity and cellular metabolic activity in a concentration dependent manner. The current study shows that size of Titanium nanoparticles and their ionic strength is adequate and also can be used at low concentrations to determine adverse effect in further studies.
