    Abstract

    We study cytotoxic properties of low-dimensional nanostructures based on aluminum oxide and hydroxide phases with the morphology of agglomerated crumpled nanosheets. Among them are nanostructures of pseudoboehmite, γ-Al2O3 and θ-Al2O3. Nanostructures of pseudoboehmite synthesized by hydrothermal oxidation of AlN/Al nanoparticles in water. γ-Al2O3 and θ-Al2O3 nanostructures were prepared by heat treatment of pseudoboehmite. The greatest cytotoxic effect is seen for cells in contact with γ-Al2O3. An analysis of properties of the synthesized nanostructures shows that γ-Al2O3 causes a higher increase in pH values of the cell culture medium and neutralizes the acidity to a greater extent.
