Here you will find information about the quality of Montana's rivers, streams, and lakes in relation to Montana's Water Quality assessments. These assessments are derived from available statewide water monitoring data and information. The Clean Water Act Information Center also provides access to Montana's Water Quality Reports and List of Impaired Surface Waters, as well as online search and mapping tools.
Phytoconstituents like flavonoids, polyphenols possesses astonishing antitumor properties; but there is no proper utilization in terms of cancer drugs due to its solubility nature, less oral intake, and ineffective delivery. These can be overcome by the application of nanotechnology (Tabrez et al. 2013). Biosynthesis of nanoparticles using plant extracts is the favorite method of green, eco-friendly production of nanoparticles and exploited to a vast extent because the plants are widely distributed, easily available, safe to handle, and with a range of metabolites (Kulkarni et al. 2011). The successful use of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in diverse medical streams as antifungal, antibacterial (Panacek et al. 2009; Singh et al. 2008), and virucidal agents (Lara et al. 2010) has led to their applications in controlling phytopathogens.
The results of formation of silver nanoparticles at different concentrations of silver nitrate (6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 ml) under various conditions are given in Table 1. The sonication method results in easy and rapid synthesis of silver nanoparticles within 40 min as compared to other methods which may be due to the effect of ultrasound, which has the ability to create clean, highly reactive surfaces on metals and thereby enhancing the rate of reactions.
There are studies that recorded high levels of silver accumulation in the brain and testicles [20, 33, 35,36,37,38,39], although the significance for toxicity is unknown . In 2018, the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) of the European Commission recommended to collect information on the reproductive toxicity of Ag NPs . The SCCS also noted the lack of information on systemic availability via the relevant uptake route(s) that would allow drawing conclusions on reproductive system toxicity . Therefore, the potential toxicity mechanism of Ag NPs is a matter of great concern with regards to reproductive toxicity .
Two mechanisms involved in the toxicity of Ag NPs have been proposed. First, silver ions are formed and released, mediated by the oxidation of the metallic silver core, inducing the formation of ROS . Second, silver ions interaction with enzymes and proteins containing thiol groups, such as metallothioneins or zinc-finger proteins, affect cellular processes such as cellular respiration and antioxidant defense system, possibly resulting in cell death [13, 14, 30, 68, 69]. Silver ions, indeed, are soft acid according to the HSAB principle, consequently they show high affinity towards soft bases and among them silver is highly affine for biomolecules containing thiols. However, it is important to go one-step back and explore the link between the oxidative stress and Ag NP dissolution to understand via which mechanism Ag NPs induce oxidative stress, in order to identify molecular initiating event(s).

(B) filament formation process under an applied bias (C) completed silver filament short circuits between overlapping nanowires (low resistance state). Yellow-gray represents AgI. Dark-gray represents Ag. Filament formation occurs as a gapless junction between Ag nanowires. (D) SEM image of the interconnected nanowire (scale bar = 20 um).
