Currently, there are no in vivo studies available regarding uptake and risk for environmental organisms. As part of the BMBF funded project INOS, titanium nitride (TiN) nanoparticles were examined in a gill cell line and an intestinal cell line from rainbow trout using concentrations up to 50 µg/ml over 3 hours and 3 days.


In comparison to other cell lines tested, these in vitro tests showed low cytotoxic effects of the TiN particles. On intestinal cells, TiN was slightly toxic, while in the gill cells no toxicity was observed [1].
