Responsible Development of Nanotechnology: Maximizing Results while Minimizing Risk

Oct. 2011- Nanotechnology holds the promise of new materials and devices that can be designed and engineered to solve critical questions in almost every sector of our economy – from treating cancer, to cleaning contaminated water, accelerating advanced manufacturing, meeting energy needs, and fixing our roadways and bridges. That’s why, for the last 10 years, the United States has engaged in an ...

Stanford University Responds to California's DTSC Data Call-In for Carbon Nanotubes

Jan. 2010- In late December 2009, California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) received the first response1 to its January 22, 2009 information request regarding carbon nanotubes2. The original request targeted 26 purported California manufacturers and/or importers of carbon nanotubes3.


Considerations on Occupational Medical Surveillance in Employees Handling Nanoparticles

The use of engineered nanoparticles not only offers new technical perspectives but also raises questions regarding possible health aspects for producers and users. Nanoparticles may, just by virtue of their size, exert biological effects unrelated to the chemicals they are composed of. These considerations, and results from experimental animal studies suggesting that engineered nanomaterials may ...

EPA Whitepaper on Nanotechnology

The EPA Nanotechnology White Paperwas issued in February 2007 by the EPA's Science Policy Council and includes discussion of risk assessment, responsible development, and research needs for environmental applications.

EPA and Nanotechnology: Oversight for the 21st Century

This paper focuses on the need for an oversight system for nanotechnology that will identify any potential adverse health or environmental effects of the technology and prevent them from occurring. It analyzes the steps that must be taken to create such a system, particularly emphasizing the role of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Environmental Health and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials

A report of the National Nanotechnology Initiative, identifying the information needed to enable sound risk assessment and risk management of engineered nanoscale materials and the products that incorporate them.

Green Nanotechnology: It's Easier Than You Think

Green nanotechnology can proactively influence the design of nanomaterials and products by eliminating or minimizing pollution from the production of nanomaterials, taking a life cycle approach to nanoproducts to estimate and mitigate where environmental impacts might occur in the product chain, designing toxicity out of nanomaterials and using nanomaterials to treat or remediate existing ...

Induction of mesothelioma in p53+/? mouse by intraperitoneal application of multi-wall carbon nanotube

Nanomaterials of carbon origin tend to form various shapes of particles in micrometer dimensions. Among them, multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) form fibrous or rod-shaped particles of length around 10 to 20 micrometers with an aspect ratio of more than three. Fibrous particles of this dimension including asbestos and some man-made fibers are reported to be carcinogenic, typically inducing ...

Nanoinformatics 2011 Supports Updated NNI EHS Research Strategy

The responsible development of nanotechnology has an impact across essentially all economic sectors, including advanced manufacturing. As core research areas of the recently released 2011 National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Research Strategy include a nanomaterials measurement infrastructure, as well as informatics and modeling, it has become evident ...

Nanotechnology Risk Governance: Recommendations for a global coordinated approach to the governance of potential risks

Sponsored by the European Commission and Institute of Nanotechnology, a roadmap for development of nanotechnology in four energy sectors: solar cells, thermoelectricity, rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors, and heat insulation and conductance

National Nanotechnology Initiative: Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy

Nanotechnology safety benefits everyone, from lab researchers and factory workers to the consumers of products enabled by this emerging technology. Accordingly, the Federal Government has developed the 2011 NNI Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Research Strategy, a comprehensive approach to ensuring the safe, effective, and responsible development and use of nanotechnology. The NNI 2011 ...

Persistent Tissue Kinetics and Redistribution of Nanoparticles, Quantum Dot 705, in Mice: ICP-MS Quantitative Assessment

Background: Quantum dots (QDs) are autofluorescent semiconductor nanocrystals that can be used for in vivo biomedical imaging. However, we know little about their in vivo disposition and health consequences. Objectives: We assessed the tissue disposition and pharmacokinetics of QD705 in mice. Methods: We determined quantitatively the blood and tissue kinetics of QD705 in mice after single ...
