Intrinsic toxicity

What are intrinsic toxicity factors?

The intrinsic toxicity of nanoparticles depends on the physical and chemical parameters:

For inorganic compounds (e.g., silica, titanium dioxide), the degree of crystallinity of the surface can also influence the toxicological properties of nano-objectsAs an example, in the case of TiO2, the anastase form produces more reactive species of oxygen and cytotoxic effects than the rutile form.

Physical parameter influence.
