ECOTOXICITY CONCERT OF NANO ZERO-VALENT IRON PARTICLES- A REVIEW

M. I. NIYAS AHAMED.

Abstract
Nanotechnology is based on the idea that, by engineering the size and shape of materials at the scale of atoms, i. e. nanometers (nm), distinct optical, electronic, or magnetic properties can be tuned to produce novel properties of commercial value. However, there is an obvious concern that such novel properties may also lead to novel behavior when interacting with biological organisms, and thus to potentially novel toxic effects. Nano zero-valent iron particle has been used for site remediation by creating permeable reactive barriers (PRBs) by filling trenches with ZVI designed to allow groundwater to pass through while “filtering” out the contaminants. Research indicates that using the nanoscale ZVI in place of the macroscale ZVI will accomplish the same remedial work more efficiently and with less cost. The full acceptance of NZVIs as a remediation agent depends on several issues. One of the most important factors relates to the fate, impact and toxicity of these nanomaterials on the ecosystems to which they are applied.

Key words: Nanotechnology, Nano zero-valent iron, Ecotoxicity.
