- Are nanoplastics hazardous? The way forward to overcome the uncertainties of risk assessment
- 24 February 2022
Read the latest Nanopinion guest column from Dr. Anita Jemec Kokalj and Dr. Dana Kühnel about defining the criteria to evaluate which properties of nanoplastics should be reported in future studies to decrease uncertainties in the risk assessment of nanoplastics.
Nanomaterials and health
Are substances in nanoforms more dangerous than they are in their normal size? Some are and some are not. Just like any other chemical substance, nanomaterials have to be assessed separately.
Nanomaterials are not only used in consumer products, but also in new and innovative medical treatments. Research has shown that nanoparticles can be used to damage and even destroy cancer cells from within.
