View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Offering a unique overview of nanoparticle-related environmental risks depending on particle type and exposed surroundings, this volume brings together both medical and nanotechnological aspects. The book adopts an in-depth approach to toxicology from both particle size as well as particle nature, covering all important nanomaterial classes: carbon materials, polymers, metals, and metal oxides. Clearly structured, the text is careful to address the effects on human physiology, air, water and the general environment.

From the Back Cover:

Nanomaterials-Toxicity, Health and Environmental Issues.

Nanotechnologies for the Life Sciences (NtLS) is the first comprehensive source covering the convergence of materials and life sciences on the nanoscale, a wide field of research which brings together the main technology drive of the 21st century and existing, multibillion dollar markets.

Written by international experts describing the various facets of nanofabrication, the ten volumes of NtLS provide the underlying nanotechnologies for the design, creation and characterization of medical, biological and cybernetic applications. Each volume addresses in detail one particular facet of the field.

Tailor-made nanomaterials find widespread new opportunities in diagnostic and monitoring microdevices, microsurgery tools and instruments, tissue engineering, drug delivery or artificial organs, and many more. Making information available from all kinds of specialized sources throughout the disciplines involved, NtLS is essential reading for all scientists working in this field from medicine and biology through chemistry, materials science and physics to engineering.

This Volume
