Phytotoxicity of Rare Earth Nanomaterials
Rare earth nanomaterials (RENMs) are widely used in various applications, leading to potential release of these materials into the environment. The study of interactions between RENMs and plants are of particular importance. In this review paper, we summarize recent advances on this topic, including three sections: (1) toxicological effects of RENMs on plants, (2) uptake and translation, and (3) transformation. It is expected that this review will provide necessary background information to further advance the knowledge on the phytotoxicity of RENMs.
