Towards Efficient Designing of Safe Nanomaterials : Innovative Merge of Computational Approaches and Experimental Techniques Hardback
The expanding field of nanotechnology is now one of the most promising areas of science.
However, because some nanoparticles can have a negative impact on human health and the environment, the design of novel materials must always be accompanied by a comprehensive risk assessment.
Until now, the information on the methods available has been fragmented and incomplete.
This book is the first to provide a comprehensive review of recent progress and challenges in the risk assessment of nanomaterials by empirical and computational techniques.
Topics covered include: benefits versus risks, carbon based nanomaterials, environmental detection and quantitative analysis, chemometric modelling, human exposure assessment, toxicity testing, nano-QSAR, risk assessment strategies, policy and regulatory frameworks.
