Description:

This book is a one-stop source that allows EH&S professionals to educate themselves on the unique and novel properties of Nanomaterials — those that are powerful and exciting and those that may be a source of concern. Nanoscience and Nanotechnology: Environmental and Health Impacts is a compilation of the latest basic research on nanotechnology and is divided into three sections:

  • Environmental and Health Impacts of Nanomaterials: Overview and Challenges — provides fundamental information including an overview of commercially produced nanomaterials.
  • Fate and Transport of Nanomaterials in the Environment — examines what happens when nanomaterials get into the environment, emphasizing their impact on water and soil.
  • Toxicity and Health Hazards of Nanomaterials — explores how nanomaterials affect the environment and its biota.
"As a practicing industrial hygienist having read this text, I have a greater appreciation and fascination for nanotechnology and feel compelled to think ‘outside the box’ in my approach to nanotechnology projects and these amazing nanomaterials." — Amy H. Snow, MHS, CIH
