This book addresses the generic chemical aspects of nanoparticle properties, behaviour, life-cycle analysis, ecotoxicity and modelling as these relate to their effects in the environment – aquatic, terrestrial and atmospheric. This information is critical for the development of appropriate evidence-based policy and guidelines for risk assessment of nanotechnology.

The book compiles the latest information on environmental and health aspects of nanomaterials, discussing the latest advances in the field and integrating knowledge from many different scientific disciplines. The introductory chapter provides an overview of the area and general context, ensuring the text is accessible for scientists who are not experts on in this area.

Topics covered include:

  • Nanoparticles in aquatic, terrestrial and atmospheric environments

  • Fate and behaviour of manufactured nanomaterials in the natural environment

  • Ecotoxicology of manufactured nanomaterials.

  • Occupational health and exposure of nanomaterials

The book concludes with a discussion on the worldwide regulatory and policy responses to nanomaterials.
