Title: Chemical characterisation, antibacterial activity, and (nano)silver transformation of commercial personal care products exposed to household greywater

Abstract

The objective of this study was to test the original speciation of silver (Ag) in eight different commercially available personal care products and investigate the chemical transformation of Ag during exposure to two types of synthetic greywater.
