Nanotechnology and the Environment by Kathleen Sellers

"Nanotechnology and the Environment" by Kathleen Sellers, Christopher Mackay, Lynn L. Bergeson, Stephen R. Clough, Marilyn Hoyt, Julie Chen, Kim Henry, Jane Hamblen
СRС Рrеss, Таylоr & Frаnсis Grоuр | 2009 | ISBN: 1420060225 | 296 pages | PDF/djvu | 4 MB

Given the potential risks, the book explores the apparent paradox of using nanomaterials in environmental remediation. The final chapter discusses frameworks for evaluating the balance between risk and reward as nanomaterials are manufactured, used and released to the environment. Nanotechnology and the Environment provides the fundamental basis needed to assess and understand the life cycle of nanomaterials. It begins with a general explanation of nanomaterials, their properties, and their uses and describes the processes used to manufacture nanoscale materials. Subsequent chapters furnish information on the analysis of nanomaterials in the environment and their fate and transport, including the effects of wastewater treatment on nanomaterials.
The book discusses possible risks to human health and the environment and the environment, and describes developing regulations to manage those risks.
