While invaluable for their uses in medicine as a drug delivery system or as an imaging agent in cancer detection, nanoparticles do present possible medical and environmental dangers. Due to the thousands of commercial and medical applications for engineered nanoparticles currently available or under development, guidelines for evaluating and controlling exposure to engineered nanoparticles are essential. Designed for EHS professionals working with nanoparticles, this important reference outlines the acceptable levels of exposure to nanoparticles and describes methods for evaluating and controlling worker exposure to engineered nanoparticles. With case studies on various nanoparticle exposures, the book sheds light on the toxicity of such nanoparticles as carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, TiO2, and metal nanoparticles as well as routes of exposure, such as skin and the respiratory system.American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists [ACGIH].
