Abstract

In the last two decades nanotechnology market has undergone remarkable growth. Breakthroughs in nanomaterial synthesis increased diverse nanomaterials production and subsequently their application. Owing to its large surface to volume ratio and remarkable physical properties not seen in the bulk materials, nanoparticles are finding emerging use in industry and medicine. Hence, it is expectable that at some point these nanomaterials will end up released into the environment and interact with bio systems. The purpose of this dissertation is to elicit implications of nanomaterial transformation once it gets inside biological milieu.
