Summary With contributions from leading researchers and government experts involved with the safety assessment of nanomaterials, this book gives an up-to-date review on the safety of engineered nanomaterials and their impact on health and the environment. It covers the whole nanomaterial life cycle-from production, transport, and distribution in the environment to biological responses and toxicology. The book also addresses occupational safety measures as well as societal and economic contexts, such as medical applications of nanomaterials, public acceptance, and risk communication and management
