With the increased presence of nanomaterials in commercial products such as cosmetics and sunscreens, fillers in dental fillings, water filtration process, catalysis, photovoltaic cells, bio-detection, a growing public debate is emerging on toxicological and environmental effects of direct and indirect exposure to these materials. Nanomaterials: A Danger or a Promise? forms a balanced overview of the health and environmental issues of nanoscale materials.

By considering both the benefits and risks associated with nanomaterials, Nanomaterials: A Danger or a Promise? compiles a complete and detailed image of the many aspects of the interface between nanomaterials and their real-life application. The full cycle of nanomaterials life will be presented and critically assessed to consider and answer questions such as:

How are nanomaterials made?

What they are used for?

What is their environmental fate?

Can we make them better?

Including coverage of relevant aspects about the toxicity of manufactured nanomaterials, nanomaterials life cycle, exposure issues, Nanomaterials: A Danger or a Promise? provides a comprehensive overview of the actual knowledge in these fields but also presents perspectives for the future development of a safer nanoscience. This comprehensive resource is a key reference for students, researcher, manufacturers and industry professionals alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The topic of this volume is very actual, as in the last decade there is an increasing use of different types of nanomaterials in a plethora of commercial available products ... . The style is clear and concise, inviting the reader to really interact. Illustrations are complex ... rich and very suggestive. ... The present volume is a comprehensive resource and a key reference for professionals (students, researchers, teachers and related manufacturers) as well as politicians and, hopefully, advised, responsible and cultivated citizens." (Ioan I. Ardelean, Romanian Biochemical Journals, Vol. 50 (2), 2013)
