NanoData URL update
3 October 2022

The Nano Technology Knowledge Base (NanoData) is available on the EUON website since June 2022. During the transition period all users visiting the old NanoData website were automatically redirected to the new one. However, such automatic redirection is no longer available.

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.

We are experiencing technical problems on EUON web site and we are working to solve them. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
