|Abstract: ||Nanomaterials provide a new avenue of progress into technological development.
By manipulating materials on the very basic atomic and molecular levels the
property of a given material can be specifically altered to suit the purpose of
intended applications. However, nanomaterials (nanoparticles and nanolayers)
have a more complex nature in physiochemical properties and surface reactivity
than their larger counterparts. Therefore, the release of these nanomaterials as
dust during crushing or drilling may lead to serious health hazards for humans
and the surrounding environment. This study, supported by the NEPHH
(Nanomaterial-related Environmental Pollution Health Hazards), addresses two
important questions about nanomaterials: - Whether nanomaterials can be released
from physical process of nanoproducts. - Toxicity potential of nanodusts
generated from nanoproducts in comparison with reference products. Both
questions address a massive gap in knowledge for toxicity and more specifically
