Scientists study adverse effects of carbon, silicon nanotubes and carbon nanofibersNanoparticles with a wide range of applying, including medicine, damage cells of microalgae Heterosigma akashivo badly. This algae species is widely spread in the Russian Far East marine area. The acute toxic effect exhibited at concentrations of 100 mg/l of carbon nanotubes and silicon nanotubes in the sea- or fresh water.
 
 
 Ferrofluid and Cancer
 
Ferrofluid and CancerFerrofluids are colloidal suspensions of magnetic particles in a liquid carrier, which become magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field. These may be composed of iron, nickel, or cobalt, and show magnetic properties.
