Bioaccessibility of Co and Ni from LIB particles. LIB particles and Co3O4 were incubated in artificial fluids mimicking the extracellular (pH 7.3) (a, c) or the phagolysosomal (pH 4.2) (b, d) compartment. Particles were incubated at 37 °C under gentle agitation and released Co (a, b) and Ni concentrations (c, d) were determined by ICP-MS in the SN after centrifugation of an aliquot of the suspensions after 3, 24 h, 7, 14 and 30 days
