Table 1 Surface area and size distribution of metallic nickel particles

From: Metallic nickel nano- and fine particles induce JB6 cell apoptosis through a caspase-8/AIF mediated cytochrome c-independent pathway

  Nickel fine particles Nickel nanoparticles
Surface area (m2/g) 0.4 ± 0.01 4.36 ± 0.02
Average size 3.34 ± 0.67 (μm) 92.32 ± 29.69 (nm)
  1. Surface area was determined by gas absorption and particle size by scanning electron microscopy. Values are means ± S.E. of six independent assays.
