Overview

Offering a unique overview of nanoparticle-related environmental risks depending on particle type and exposed surroundings, this volume brings together both medical and nanotechnological aspects. The book adopts an in-depth approach to toxicology from both particle size as well as particle nature, covering all important nanomaterial classes: carbon materials, polymers, metals, and metal oxides. Clearly structured, the text is careful to address the effects on human physiology, air, water and the general environment.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book as well as the other volumes in this series are excellent reading for scientists working in the field of nanotechnology—toxicologists, industrial hygienists, chemists, engineers and physicians." (Journal of Chemical Health and Safety, January/February 2007)

"This book is a good starting point for anyone wishing to acquaint themselves with the key issues relating to nanomaterials…(British Toxicology Society Newsletter, Summer 2007)

"...the book offers a broad survey over new developments in a field which finally will be decisive for the future development of nanotechnology." (Clean - Soil, Air, Water, 2007 35(2))
