Abstract

Differential uptake of carbon nanoparticles by plant cells is illustrated. Specifically, the left panel shows accumulation of hydrophilic C 60(OH)20 between a plant cell wall and a plasma membrane, while the right panel displays aggregation and retention of C70-NOM assembly in a plant cell wall.
