About this product
- DescriptionNabiotechlogy is a fast developing field of research and application in many domains such as in medicine, pharmacy, cosmetics and agro-industry. The book addresses the lastest fundamental results on natoxicology and naethics, and the ermous range of potential applications in the fields of medical diagstics, namedicine, and food and water administration. Nascale objects have properties leading to specific kinds of behaviour, sometimes exacerbating their chemical reactivity, physical behaviour, or potential to penetrate deeply within living organisms. Hence it is important to ensure the responsible and safe development of namaterials and natechlogies. This fourth volume in the Nascience series should make its mark, by presenting the state of the art in the fields of natoxicology and naethics. This is the first book to combine both scientific kwledge and ethical and social recommendations. It also presents specific policies on natechlogies set up by national and international authorities. This book is of interest to engineers, researchers, and graduate students.
