Key new chapters have been included covering eco-toxicity, nanomedicine, informatics, and future threats. New case studies have also been added, including a chapter on the impact of nanosilver on the environment, as well as an assessment of how well lessons have been learned from the past, such as in the case of asbestos. The book also makes a business case for the importance of proactive EHS management - essential reading for existing or prospective producers of nanoscale products.
AudienceResearchers in academic and national laboratories, Regulators at the state and federal levels, Business professionals involved in development, manufacturing, and commercialization of emerging nanotechnologies, Risk managers and insurance professionals.
