Abstract

Nanomaterials are quickly moving from research benches to the manufacturing environment and into product lines. These materials pose unique safety concerns, which should be made clear to both the workers and the consumers who are exposed to them. The following is a summary of documents concerning the dangers posed by a wide variety of nanomaterials as well as references, which may be useful to practicing process engineers and EHS professionals. © 2010 American Institute of Chemical Engineers Process Saf Prog, 2010
