Abstract: This technical note describes the relationship of acute lethality between citrate or polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) coated silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and silver nitrate (AgNO₃) to varying concentrations of dissolved organic carbon (DOC). The results of this relationship were obtained to provide a data set that supports the Environmental Modifying Factors Tool in NanoExPERT (, a suite of tools that were developed within the nanomaterial risk assessment focus area at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to aid in environmental risk assessment.
