Home > Spotlight January 2023: Special issue on Methods and Protocols in Nanotoxicology published

In the first Spotlight of the new year, we present a special issue on methods and protocols in nanotoxicology published in the journal Frontiers in Toxicology.

There are still too few harmonized protocols accepted by the scientific community. To improve this situation, project activities are started and special issues of journals like this one are published.

Nine articles in this issue are devoted to topics such as methods for determining genotoxicity or interferences of nanomaterials with test systems.

The methods and protocols presented in this special issue are intended to help improving the transferability and reproducibility of results from different laboratories. Many potential sources of error have been identified and interferences of nanomaterials with test systems has been highlighted. The same applies to nanomaterials as to other chemicals: toxicological data are only useful and usable if they can be confirmed by other laboratories.

The special issue is supplemented by an editorial written by DaNa partners Harald Krug and Katja Nau.

Spotlight September 2021: Wood, the raw material of the future?

One of the greatest challenges facing humanity is to produce clean drinking water under the given circumstances of global warming, population growth and increasing littering. In September, we would like to present a review article that believes one approach to solve this problem is the use of nanoscale wood. In the review, “Advanced Nanowood Materials […]

Spotlight May 2023: Dual energy – edible batteries

An Italian research group reports on edible batteries that supply electric current and can be digested as food, thus providing energy a second time. What sounds funny at first has a serious background, because in medicine, power sources are needed that could be transported through the digestive tract and possibly remain in the body unintentionally, […]

Spotlight December 2022: Fighting tumors with micro robots

When we, the DaNa team as operators of the website nanopartikel.info, write about nanobots, i.e. nanometre-sized machines, we point out that these machines belong to science fiction, may even remain a utopia – i.e. never realisable. On the significantly larger micro-scale, however, small machines are conceivable that could help in the therapy of diseases, e.g. […]

Spotlight April 2021: Nanomaterials and Fake News – a commentary based on an example

In February 2021, the article “The invisible killer lurking in our consumer products” appeared, describing nanoparticles as a greater danger than Corona [1]. “The use of nanomaterials” would be “unregulated” and “nanomaterials are so small that they cannot be determined once they are part of a product”. So what is the truth of these statements? […]
