Nanomaterials of organic and inorganic nature have been used for a variety of applications
ranging from catalysis to gas storage, and from biosensors to drug delivery. With extensive previous reports showing materials with dimension nano have unique
physicochemical properties that lead to increased biosystems’ reactivity, and with
increasing concerns regarding adverse health effects upon such nanomaterial’s implementation,
there is a growing interest to evaluate the toxicological profiles of nanomaterials
and how their characteristics can be controlled to lead to effective risk assessment
and mitigation prior to their implementation.
