An authoritative, in-depth exploration of the environmentalconsequences of nanotechnology Nanotechnology is revolutionizing the chemical, telecom, biotech,pharmaceutical, health care, aerospace, and computer industries,among others, and many exciting new nanotech applications areenvisioned for the near future. While the rapid pace of innovationhas been truly inspiring, much remains to be learned about thepotential environmental and health risks posed by this nascenttechnology and its byproducts. So important is this issue that theultimate success or failure of nanotechnology may well depend onhow effectively science and industry address these concerns in theyears ahead. Written by two highly accomplished environmental professionals,Nanotechnology: Environmental Implications and Solutions bringsscientists, engineers, and policymakers up to speed on the currentstate of knowledge in this vitally important area. ProfessorTheodore and Dr. Kunz provide a concise review of nano-fundamentalsand explore background issues surrounding nanotechnology and itsenvironmental impact. They then follow up with in-depth discussionsof: * The control, monitoring, and reduction of nanotech byproducts andtheir impact on the air, water, and land * Health risks associated with nanotechnology, and methods toassess and control them * Nanotech hazard risk assessment-including emergency responseplanning and personnel training * Multimedia approaches that are available for the analysis of theimpact of nanotechnology in the chemical, manufacturing, and wastedisposal industries * The future of nanotechnology and the "Industrial RevolutionII" * The legal implications of nanotechnology * Societal and ethical implications of nanotechnology-basedmaterials and processing method Assuming only a basic knowledge of physics, chemistry, andmathematics on behalf of its readers, Nanotechnology: EnvironmentalImplications and Solutions makes fascinating and useful reading forengineers, scientists, administrators, environmental regulatoryofficials, and public policy makers, as well as students in a rangeof science and engineering disciplines.

Nanotechnology is a highly inter- and multi- disciplinary application oriented research area. Not only does it find its use in nanomedicine, solar cells, sensor development and so on, but can also be effectively utilized to prevent water pollution. Nanostructured materials such as magnetic nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, silver-impregnated cyclodextrin nanocomposites, nanostructured iron-zeolites, carbo-iron nanomaterials, photocatalytic titania nanoparticles, nanofiltration membranes and functionalized silica nanoparticles can be employed in water treatment to remove heavy metals, sediments, chemical effluents, charged particles, bacteria and other pathogens. This edited book comprises several review-style chapters written by world experts. The chapters are devoted to each of these nanotechnology based approaches: basic principles, practical applications, recent break-through and limitations associated with it. The last chapter covers the environmental risks of applying engineered nanomaterials for water purification. The wealth of information and insight offered in this book will be appealing to scientists and researchers over a wide range of disciplines.

The emergence of nanoscience portends a revolution in technology that will soon impact virtually every facet of our technological lives. Yet there is little understanding of what it is among the educated public and often among scientists and engineers in other disciplines. Furthermore, despite the emergence of undergraduate courses on the subject, no basic textbooks exist. Nanotechnology: Basic Science and Emerging Technologies bridges the gap between detailed technical publications that are beyond the grasp of nonspecialists and popular science books, which may be more science fiction than fact. It provides a fascinating, scientifically sound treatment, accessible to engineers and scientists outside the field and even to students at the undergraduate level. After a basic introduction to the field, the authors explore topics that include molecular nanotechnology, nanomaterials and nanopowders, nanoelectronics, optics and photonics, and nanobiometrics. The book concludes with a look at some cutting-edge applications and prophecies for the future. Nanoscience will bring to the world technologies that today we can only imagine and others of which we have not yet dreamt. This book lays the groundwork for that future by introducing the subject to those outside the field, sparking the imaginations of tomorrow's scientists, and challenging them all to participate in the advances that will bring nanotechnology's potential to fruition.

Interested in Nanotechnology but Can’t Bear to Wade through Detailed Technical Reports? While reports on nanotechnology by research and marketing firms as well as governmental agencies are comprehensive and insightful, they can often be tedious to read, expensive to procure, and generally unknown to nonexperts interested in this technology. Offering a reader-friendly and affordable alternative to these options, Nanotechnology: Health and Environmental Risks introduces risk analysis as a tool for responsible environmental decision making in nanotechnology development and provides examples of past, present, and future technologies that demonstrate the need for and benefits of evaluating the risks of nanotechnology. The Most Up-to-Date and Relevant Information on the Impact of Nanotechnology on Our Health and Surroundings After outlining the steps of risk analysis, the book examines the opportunity costs inherent in current nanotechnology development. It then introduces life cycle analysis, the toxicology of nanoscale materials, and the known impacts of specific nanoscale materials on people. The text also covers environmental impacts and exposure, followed by chapters on the state-of-the-art tools that adapt life cycle thinking into risk analysis for nanotechnology. The final chapters describe current practices for managing the hazards and risks of nanoscale materials and explore the numerous international efforts that address the risks, science, and policies of nanotechnology. Recognize and Overcome the Risks Involving Nanotechnology With full-color images and insights into key health and environmental aspects of nanotechnology, this resource shows how the risk analysis of nanotechnology can play an important role in creating a sustainable future.
