High School Nanoscience Program - Biotoxicity

Linked product

"Biotoxicity" is an experiment that explores the antimicrobial properties and biotoxicity of nanoscale particles of silver. Students first produce nanosilver and then use the rate of respiration of yeast in the presence of different forms of silver to compare their biotoxicity.
