Key Features

  • Multi-authored book, written by leading researchers in the field of nanotoxicology and nanosafety
  • Features state-of-the-art physical and chemical characterization of engineered nanomaterials (ENM)
  • Develops strategies for exposure assessment, risk assessment and risk management
  • Includes practical case studies and exposure scenarios to demonstrate how you can safely use ENM in the workplace

Description

Handbook of Nanosafety: Measurement, Exposure and Toxicology, written by leading international experts in nanosafety, provides a comprehensive understanding of engineered nanomaterials (ENM), current international nanosafety regulation, and how ENM can be safely handled in the workplace.

Increasingly, the importance of safety needs to be considered when promoting the use of novel technologies like ENM. With its use of case studies and exposure scenarios, Handbook of Nanosafety demonstrates techniques to assess exposure and risks and how these assessments can be applied to improve workers' safety. Topics covered include the effects of ENM on human health, characterization of ENM, aerosol dynamics and measurement, exposure and risk assessment, and safe handling of ENM.

Based on outcomes from the NANODEVICE initiative, this is an essential resource for those who need to apply current nanotoxicological thinking in the workplace and anyone who advises on nanosafety, such as professionals in toxicology, occupational safety and risk assessment.

Quotes and reviews

"Most of the information is from the NANODEVICE research project funded by the European Union, but the findings often integrate results of other research as well. Contributors from a wide range of sciences cover nanotechnology and exposure scenarios; nanomaterials and human health…"--ProtoView.com, April 2014
