Abstract:

Provides information about the toxicology and work health hazards of engineered nanomaterials. This report updates and builds on the findings of the 2009 report and provides specific information about the health hazards of:

  • Carbon nanotubes
  • Titanium dioxide
  • Zinc oxide
  • Cerium oxide, and
  • Silver

The report provides suggestions for workplace exposure standards for carbon nanotubes and nanoscale silver and titanium dioxide. It also finds that conventional risk assessment approaches for chemicals can be used in managing risks of working with engineered nanomaterials.
