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.
