Table 3 The loss rate (%) of CNMs by mechanical processes such as washing and centrifugation

From: Carbon nanomaterial-derived lung burden analysis using UV-Vis spectrophotometry and proteinase K digestion

Nominal Dose (μg/mL) 10 20 30
CB 4.60 ± 0.78a 4.84 ± 1.14 4.60 ± 0.68
ND 4.19 ± 1.06 3.95 ± 1.27 3.87 ± 0.44
MWCNT 6.20 ± 0.71 5.28 ± 0.94 4.54 ± 0.79
CNF 5.73 ± 1.70 4.25 ± 0.99 4.11 ± 0.75
GNP 4.97 ± 1.15 4.81 ± 1.14 4.26 ± 1.91
  1. aThe recovered concentration was divided by the initial dose to calculate the loss rate
  2. Data are mean ± SEM and n = 4 for each concentration
