  • Nanotechnology, the unknown technique of the future

    Nanotechnology has not yet reached public consciousness in the way that other new technologies have, says DIW Berlin (German Institute for Economic Research) in its weekly bulletin. Although one person in two has heard of the concept, only one in five can think of a concrete example. The report is based on a specific survey forming part of a long-term research project by the Socio-economic Panel ...

  • Risks of nanotechnology remain uncertain

    Toxicology experiments on nanomaterials often seem to run the same way: put some nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, quantum dots, or other kind of nanosized structures in a petri dish, water column, soil sample, or lab test tube of choice. Then expose daphnids, microbes, zebrafish, pig lung cells, human skin cells, or other model organisms to the new and exciting materials. Sit back and see what ...

  • Nanotechnology in Energy Applications

    Nanotechnology is increasingly impacting the U.S. and world energy balance, both on the supply and demand sides. On the supply side, nanotechnology is being used to optimize production from existing energy sources (e.g., crude petroleum) and to exploit new sources such as heavy oil, liquefied coal and solar energy (including using solar energy to produce hydrogen). Nanotechnology is also ...

  • Nanotechnology and its implications for environmental legislation

    The major problem for environmental legislation arising from nanotechnology is the size of nano-particles. Nano, meaning dwarf, is measured in nanometers or billionths of a meter. One way of contamination is penetration through human skin. Since nanoparticles are so small, they have a very large surface area as compared with the amount of their interior. Inside, the contents are stable, but those ...
