Table 1: Silver nanoparticle size by Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS). The used silver nanoparticles were coated with 0.2% polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) (stated by the manufacturer to be spherical 30–40 nm particles). Particle suspensions were subjected to sodium chloride contractions (100 mg L−1 to 800 mg L−1) at stock pH value 3.9 and at the head tank (fish tank water) equivalent pH value 6.9, followed over 24 hours at 26°C. The samples were kept between measurements under conditions identical to the fish tanks used for nanosilver toxicity assessment. DLS measurement was run in triplicate using automated, optimal measurement time and laser attenuation settings.
