Articles & Reports on Nanotechnology Health and Safety Issues

Selected Journals on Nanomaterial Research

  • Journal of Nanoparticle Research
    The Journal of Nanoparticle Research is a monthly peer-reviewed journal that explores the specific concepts, properties, phenomena and processes of structures at the nanoscale.
  • Nanotoxicology
    Nanotoxicology invites contributions addressing research relating to the potential for human and environmental exposure, hazard and risk associated with the use and development of nano-structured materials.

Engineered Nanoparticles: Safer Substitutes for Toxic Materials, or a New Hazard?

Nanotechnology has the potential for the development of new materials and processes that can substitute for toxic materials now used in industry. Excitement over this possibility is tempered, however, by the potential adverse environmental health and safety aspects of the new nanomaterials. Although a few examples from the literature are encouraging, e.g., wire and cable insulation, great care must be taken to perform complete alternatives assessment evaluations of any new nanotechnology enabled product before its adoption.
