Safety Concern of Nanomaterials

Open access


Nanomaterials are sure to take an important part in shaping the 21st century. Nevertheless, their increasing application in many fields of the industry also turns attention to the impact on health and environment. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to fully understand the influence of nanoparticles on the environment and the relevant safety issues.

The aim of the present review is to characterise the current state of regulation and legislation of nanomaterials, as well as the factors of safety assessment and their toxicity.
