The critical role of light in moderating microbial stress due to mixtures of engineered nanomaterials

Light influences chemical interactions of engineered nanomaterials and their toxic effects. Under simulated solar irradiation, we observed that binary mixtures of n-Ag, n-Au, or n-Pt with n-TiO2 cause synergistic toxic effects in E. coli due to photochemical interactions governed by metal nanoparticle stability and localized surface plasmon resonance.
