Safety of Nanomaterials

The topic of nanotechnology and its safety is an often discussed topic in science and society. The authors Wendel Wohlleben, Thomas Kuhlbusch, Jürgen Schnekenburger und Claus-Michael Lehr have made it their task to take a closer look at this topic.

 

"Safety of Nanomaterials along Their Lifecycle: Release, Exposure, and Human Hazards" presents the state of the art in nanosafety research from a lifecycle perspective. Although major knowledge gaps still exist, solid data are now available to identify scenarios of critical risk as well as those of safe nanomaterial use for our benefit.

The book is divided into four parts: characterization, hazard, release and exposure, and real-life case studies. To improve coherence throughout the book, various chapters review the same suite of well-characterized, judiciously chosen, and identical industrial nanomaterials. The book is a helpful resource to professionals in product development, industrial design, regulatory agencies, and materials scientists and engineers involved in the safety of nanomaterials.

The book is available from Amazon or from CRC Press (Shipping from the UK).
