The present document provides a brief synopsis of the (potential) mechanisms underlying the toxicity of synthetic, polymer (plastic) nanoparticles, i.e. nanoplastics, towards marine organisms. General hypotheses concerning material properties and their ROS generating capacities are roughly outlined, most of which remain to be verified for nanoplastics, and the concept of bioavailability is presented as a crucial concept for understanding and assessing toxicity, which allows to link chemical and physical speciation with possible biological effects. 20 more words
