Nanopinion: European nanomaterial market expected to grow – new barriers emerging
17 January 2023

Dr Anastasios Papadiamantis and Dr Antreas Afantitis tell us about the findings of a study commissioned by the EU Observatory for Nanomaterials on the EU market for nanomaterials, including substances, uses, volumes and key operators. Read all about it in our Nanopinion guest column.

Nanomaterials and health


ImageNanomaterials 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.



ImageFighting cancer using nanotechnology

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.
