About the Authors
  • The widespread and increasing use of carbon nanotubes in scientific and engineering research and their incorporation into manufactured goods has urged an assessment of the risks and hazards associated with exposure to them. The field of nanotoxicology studies the toxicology of nanoparticles such as carbon nanotubes and has become a major growth area aimed towards risk assessment of nanoparticles. Compiled by a team of leading experts at the forefront of research, this is the first book dedicated to the toxicology of carbon nanotubes. It provides state-of-the-science information on how and why they are so potentially dangerous if breathed in, including their similarities to asbestos. The book examines various aspects of carbon nanotubes, from their manufacture and aerodynamic behaviour to their effects at molecular level in the lungs. It is invaluable to the many groups involved with research in this area, as well as to regulators and risk assessors.

    • The first book on this subject, written by experts in the field
    • Describes the nature of carbon nanotubes in the context of their toxicology
    • Takes a sophisticated toxicological approach to analyse the toxicology of nanotubes in the lungs

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The authors provide state-of-the-science information on how and why carbon nanotubes are potentially dangerous if inhaled, and elaborate on their similarities to asbestos. As such, the book should be instructive to scientists and organizations involved with research in this area, as well as to regulators and risk assessors."
    American Institute of Chemical Engineers
