WHO guidelines on protecting workers from potential risks of manufactured nanomaterials

The term nanomaterials refers to materials that have at least one dimension (height, width or length) that is smaller than 100 nanometres (10−7 metre), which is about the size of a virus particle. This particular size dimension represents a major characteristic of manufactured nanomaterials (MNMs). The unique properties of MNMs may result in better paints, […]

A Study on Unpredictable Behavior of Nanoparticles

Nanoparticles behave in an extremely complex manner in the environment. In a large overview study, ETH environmental scientists have proved that currently there is a lack of systematic experimental data that could help in understanding the nanoparticles in a comprehensive way.…… http://www.azonetwork.com/go/?ruid=166bb1b132bd420181c1e309242e010c&nirid=4d4fcbd8a5844bc4af57509bfc364801

Revolutionary Screening Method for the Impact of Biomedical Nanoparticles on the Immune System

Over the last several years, the application of nanoparticles, particles with at least one dimension within the size range of 1-100 nm, has become increasingly popular in a wide variety of practical industries. Within the field of medicine, the use of nanoparticles as drug and gene delivery vehicles, particularly chemotherapeutic drugs, as well as fluorescent […]
