Nanotoxicology for Agricultural and Environmental Applications: Nanobiotechnology for Plant Protection

Editat de Mahendra Rai, Indarchand Gupta
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 21 mar 2024
Nanotoxicology for Agricultural and Environmental Applications provides an introduction to nanotechnology and its applications in agriculture and the environment. This reference, especially focused on the role of each physicochemical property of nanomaterials in toxicity, also presents a consolidated discussion on the management of the risks associated with nanoparticle use and rules and regulations made by various countries and organizations around the world.

Structured into five parts, this book explores nanotoxicity concerning agriculture and food, its impact on the environment, risk management measures for avoiding exposure, and delves into the realm of nanotechnology regulations. Students, practitioners, and researchers working in plant science, agricultural science, nanoscience, and environmental chemistry alike will benefit from this necessary reference.

  • Highlights the factors contributing to toxic effects of nanoparticles, including shape, size, structure, surface charge, and dosage
  • Explores the mode of action and entry of nanoparticles, methods of toxicity evaluation, and the associated challenges
  • Describes recent developments in nanotoxicity to soil ecosystems, crop plants, and food systems
  • Emphasizes the impact of nanoparticles and their detoxification by plants on the nutritional quality of food and plants
  • Discusses the impact of toxicity of nanoparticles released in air, soil, and water and methods to reduce their effects
