Abstract

Ecotoxicological testing of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) began some years ago, but satisfactory knowledge of their environmental effects is still far from acceptable. In this study, the effects of three ENPs, i.e. nano silver (nAg), nano titanium-dioxide (nTiO2) and nano zinc-oxide (nZnO) on surface waters were examined using Species Sensitivity Distributions (SSD) models. Ecotoxicity data (acute EC50/LC50/IC50) from 44 scientific publications were evaluated. The nAg proved to be the most toxic among the three examined ENPs, followed by nZnO and nTiO2 with HC5 values of 0.00015, 0.275, and 3.246 (mg/L), respectively. Risk Quotient (RQ) values of nAg, nTiO2 and nZnO showed irrelevant risk (RQ
