Investigation of Statistical Experimental Design Results Showing UV-Vis Absorbance Values of Characterized Zn and ZnO Nanoparticles
Nanoparticles (NPs), whose current potential to be studied are increasing day by day due to their important physical and chemical properties,
also show toxic effects in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. In this context, it is important to make environmental/ecological risk assessments.
The properties of NPs to be used should be determined also in the toxicity studies.
Ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy results for the characterization of Zn (40-60 nm) and Zn (80-100 nm) and ZnO (10-30 nm) NPs used
in our study were examined and evaluated with statistical experimental design results. According to the results of the study, the models created
for all NPs were statistically significant at 95% significance level; the order of action was found to be in the form of time and dose for Zn (40-
60 nm) and Zn (80-100 nm) NPs and equal for ZnO (10-30 nm) NP. Intensive and possible misuse of nanoscale materials is one of the greatest
threats to the environment and all living things. In this study, important results were obtained on the establishment of control mechanisms for
uses of NP.
