There are indications of harmful effects of indium tin oxide (ITO) nanoparticles towards various aquatic organisms, especially to invertebrates and algae.


However, these indications need a critical review, since they are based on only one available study dealing with the environmental risk of ITO nanoparticles [1]. Due to lack of data for particle characterisation, this study does notz meet the literature quality criteria of the DaNa Consortium. In particular, data on particle size and size distribution in the appropriate dispersing media, as well as surface characteristics and chemistry, and morphology are missing.
