Environmental Implications of Nanomaterials: Biological Interactions
- Conference: AIChE Annual Meeting
- Year: 2013
- Proceeding: 2013 AIChE Annual Meeting
- Type: Oral

- Location: Hilton
- Time: Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 3:15pm-5:45pm
With the widespread usage and commercialization of nano-scale materials, the consequent exposition of human and environment to such materials is undoubtedly increasing, both in the production phase and throughout the life cycle of nanomaterial-based applications. This session will highlight the latest research on toxicity and exposure-monitoring advances, risk evaluation, risk communication, and eventually risk reduction associated with nanomaterials exposure, as well as the hazard identification in relation to the nanomaterials physicochemical properties. Special focus will be given to the papers addressing the interactions between nanomaterials and microbes, lipid membranes, or other forms of biota as well as papers addressing the questions related to the safety of composites that contains nanomaterials.
Paper abstracts are public but to access Extended Abstracts, you must first purchase the conference proceedings.
