An Overview on Toxic Nanoparticles and Their Interactions with Microbial Cells

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Molecular Science book series (SB BIOMETALS)

Abstract

Engineered nanostructures include novel class of materials that are gaining tremendous recognition to pursuit in diverse disciplines including biomedicine, bioengineering, and electronics. Enormous applications of engineered nanoparticles in the existing and emerging technologies are leading to their large-scale production as well as environmental release. Therefore, to ensure proper uses of nanoparticles, it is important to understand the interactions of nanoparticles with biotic cells. Depending on the type of nanoparticle and its intrinsic properties, nanoparticles are considered either lethal or non-hazardous. Additionally, the size, shape, composition, and surface properties can significantly govern the performance of nanoparticles and might similarly influence their interaction with bacterial cells. This chapter will focus on overviewing the literature on the possible modes of interaction of engineered nanoparticles with the bacteria and along with the proposed mechanistic insights.
