Biokinetics of nanomaterials: The role of biopersistence

Analytical tools that potentially can facilitate elucidation of key nanomaterials (NM) characteristics, such as ion beam microscopy (IBM) and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS), are discussed in the article in relation to their potential to advance the understanding of biopersistent NM kinetics. The authors conclude that a major requirement for future nanosafety research is the development and application of analytical tools to characterize NPs in different exposure scenarios and biological matrices.
