Increased surface area of halloysite nanotubes due to surface modification predicts lung inflammation and acute phase response after pulmonary exposure in mice.

Halloysite is a natural clay mineral that can occur in nature as rolled-up sheets of aluminum and silica, then called halloysite nanotubes (HNTs). HNTs can be used in food packaging. Loading of HNTs with essential oils and the subsequent incorporation into food packing material can increase the food shelf life, since essential oils have antimicrobial [...]

NanoPack first results have been published

NanoPack first results have been published under the title 'Occupational exposure during handling and loading of halloysite nanotubes – A case study of counting nanofibers'. Halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) are used in NanoPack films to encapsulate antimicrobial essential oils. When inhaled, they could represent a potential health risk. In this paper, the potential inhalation exposure to [...]
