Toxicological Risk Assessment of Emerging Nanomaterial


Martin Wagr*

As the field of nanotechnology continues to advance, it brings with it a multitude of potential benefits across various industries, including electronics, medicine and energy. However, amidst the excitement surrounding nanotechnology's promises, there is a growing need to address equally important aspect nano toxicity. Nano toxicity refers to the potential adverse effects that nanomaterials may have on human health and the environment. Understanding and unraveling the dangers of nano toxicity is essential to ensure the safe and responsible development and application of nanotechnology. Nanomaterials possess distinctive properties due to their small size, typically ranging from 1 to 100 nanometers. These properties, such as increased surface area, altered chemical reactivity and unique electromagnetic behavior, make nanomaterials highly desirable for various applications. However, these same properties can also contribute to their potential toxicity. The potential risks associated with nano toxicity primarily revolve around human health. When nanomaterials are inhaled, ingested or come into contact with the skin, they can enter the body and interact with cells and tissues. Due to their small size, nanomaterials can penetrate barriers that larger particles cannot, allowing them to reach sensitive areas such as the lungs, cardiovascular system and even cross the blood-brain barrier.
