NPs interaction with pulmonary surfactants

Characterization of NPs interaction with pulmonary surfactants

This work focuses on adsorption and interaction of MNM on lung surfactants. NMR, ATR-FTIR,  DSC and AFM  are applied to study the impact of the MNM on membrane  structure and properties, which is relevant for MNM crossing and uptake.
