An increased understanding of the environmental and human health impacts of engineered nanoparticles is essential for the responsible development of nanotechnology and appropriate evidence-based policy and guidelines for risk assessment. Presenting the latest advances in the field from a variety of scientific disciplines, this book offers a comprehensive overview of this challenging, inter-disciplinary research area. <p>Topics covered include:</p> <ul> <li>The properties, preparation and applications of nanomaterials</li> <li>Characterization and analysis of manufactured nanoparticles</li> <li>The fate and behaviour of nanomaterials in aquatic, terrestrial and atmospheric environments</li> <li>Ecotoxicology and human toxicology of manufactured nanoparticles</li> <li>Occupational health and exposure of nanomaterials</li> <li>Risk assessment and global regulatory and policy responses</li> </ul> <p>Understanding the behaviour and impacts of nanotechnology in the environment and in human health is a daunting task and many questions remain to be answered. <i>Environmental and Human Health Impacts of Nanotechnology</i> will serve as a valuable resource for academic researchers in nanoscience and nanotechnology, environmental science, materials science and biology, as well as for scientists in industry, regulators and policy makers.</p>
