Nanotoxicity: A New Discipline

Dr. Mae-Wan Ho

Nanoparticles billionths of metre in dimensions - produced by nanotechnology have unusual properties not found in the bulk material, which can be exploited in numerous applications such as biosensing, electronics, photovoltaics, diagnostics and drug delivery. However, research within the past few years has turned up a range of potential health hazards, which has given birth to the new discipline of nanotoxicity.

Little is known so far about whether materials being invented by
nanotechnology researchers can be hazardous to humans and if so, under
what conditions.

But at least toxicologists studying such questions now have a broad
roadmap from a government-sponsored panel of experts on how to proceed.

Formally titled "Principles for characterizing the potential human
