Description - Nanotechnology by Louis Theodore
Nanomaterials interact differently with the body and environment than do larger materials, and nanomaterials may turn out to be harmful, or benign, to the environment. However, the study of nanotechnology's environmental consequences is still in the initial stages. How the environmental risks are dealt with will ultimately determine the future of nanotechnology. This book begins to address these concerns, serving as a tool for both students and professional engineers who will need to be aware of these. Offers material both to individuals with limited technical background and also to those with extensive industrial experience Draws attention to the impacts of nanotechnology and spur further interest and analyses to this end Cuts across many fields - from environmentalists who are concerned with impacts to the researchers working in nanotechnology Written by two accomplished environmental professionals
