"Spicy world of NanoScience"
Semiconductor nanocrystals, or Quantum Dots (QDs), have gained considerable attention due to their unique size-dependent optical and electronic properties that make them attractive for a wide range of applications, including biology and nanomedicine. Their widespread use, however, poses urgent questions about their potential toxicity, especially because of their heavy metal composition that could cause harmful effects to human health and environment. In this work, we evaluated in vivo the…Continue
