This new volume seeks to give a broad overview of the sources, behaviour and risks associated with nanotechnology.
Setting the subject into context, this book describes the current range of products containing nanomaterials and looks at the consequences for the environment and human health for the introduction of nanoparticles and nano-tubes. A perspective from the United States indicates how the threats posed by nanoparticles are being addressed.
The book takes a careful look at the hazards posed by nanoparticles and makes a balanced assessment of the benefits and disadvantages of forging ahead with large-scale nanotechnology. Because of the timely and important message it contains, this is a work that I feel should be read by all those who may be contemplating any activity that involves contact with nanoparticles -- Chemistry World, February 2008, 64 (Dennis Rouvray) Chemistry World
