Hypochlorite scavenging activity of cerium oxide nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this report, we provide evidence that specific synthesis of cerium oxide nanoparticles can scavenge the hypochlorite anion, which is a strong extracellular oxidant involved in the inflammatory processes. The scavenging process takes place by a surface reaction involving the evolution of oxygen and the reduction of Ce4+ to Ce3+.
