Characteristic properties of population of suspensions of agglomerated engineered nanoparticles
Engineered nanoparticles pH Zeta potential[mV] Stability behaviour Size(measured by DLS)
TiO2 in PBS- citrate 7,9 −26 Incipient instability
ZnO in PBS- citrate 7,9 −29 Incipient instability
TiO2 in 0,3 M glucose 4,4 −22 Incipient instability 600-4000 nm (average 1820 nm)
ZnO in 0,3 M glucose 6,6 −15 Incipient instability 100 – 1200 nm (average 431 nm)

The DLS measurements of TiO2 and ZnO EP suspensions in glucose could be performed, but the DLS measurements of TiO2 and ZnO EP suspensions in PBS citrate could not be performed due to fast sedimentation.
