Genotoxicity of metal oxide nanomaterials - review

What is it about?

This review focuses on the potential of nanomaterials to cause genotoxicity and summarizes recent genotoxicity studies on metal oxide/silica nanomaterials.

Why is it important?

It is a comprehensive review on nanomaterials genotoxicity with a large table of easy to extract data for further assessments of most of the metal oxide nanomaterials' genotoxicity.
