SilvoSept disinfection products have been designed based on nanosilver
technology by Chitotech Company.
powder (Sigma-Aldrich) with an average particle size of 100 nm and nanoclay (SUD-Chemie-Mexico) with an interlayer spacing of d = 1.
EPA Targets Nanotechnology: Hi-Ho, Nanosilver
the risk of aggregate exposures from other nanosilver
Commonly incorporated as an antibacterial agent into clothing, socks, underwear, washing machines and toothpaste, nanosilvers
eventually get washed out and end up in the sewage system.
The main benefit of nanosilver
inks is its enhanced conductivity.
But the rise of antibiotic-resistance in many bacteria has encouraged a renaissance, as has our ability to produce nanosilver
, which both enhances bulk silver's antimicrobial activity and is easy to incorporate into medical products such as plasters, bandages, and now plastics.
, silver-based and silver-hybrid conductive inks
Although silver has been used safely for centuries, some question whether the rapid expansion of new exposure sources to nanosilver
could have adverse consequences.
Samsung, for example, is using nanosilver
technology in some of its home washing machines.
The participants were asked to carefully read a news post on a (fictitious) blog about a new high-tech product called nanosilver
The Environmental Protection Agency allowed a pesticide known as nanosilver
to be used in textiles, meaning it could appear in bedsheets, clothing and other fabrics without the knowledge of consumers.
