Towards Efficient Designing of Safe Nanomaterials : Innovative Merge of Computational Approaches and Experimental Techniques Hardback
Edited by Jerzy (Jackson State University, USA) Leszczynski, Tomasz (University of Gdansk, Poland) Puzyn
Part of the Nanoscience series
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.
