CADMIUM NANOPARTICLES AND ITS TOXICITY

RAJNISH GUPTA.

Abstract
Nanotechnology is the next-generation science revolutionized the world by providing many unpredicted outcomes. Though apparent beneficial,
nanomaterials may associate with severe unknown health issues. People are exposed to nanoparticles during production, storage, shipping,
utilization, and waste treatment process without adequate protection. Cadmium Sulfide Nanoparticles (Cd. nps) are used frequently to produce
hybrid solar cells, semiconductors, Ni-Cd batteries, preparing metal alloys and coatings, fluorescence imaging and biosensing, light-emitting diode
and plastic stabilizers. Toxicity of Cd. nps has raised a significant apprehension both, occupationally and environmentally yet no compiled data is
available to signify its possible toxicity. Consequently, the present review meticulously evaluated the available literature and summaries the
detrimental effect of cadmium sulfide nanoparticles. This attempt will specify existing knowledge of the toxic effects of cadmium-based
nanoparticles and will aware personnel to minimize direct or indirect exposure.

Key words: Cadmium sulfide, Nanotoxicology, Occupational exposure, Solar cell
