Paving the Way For Nanotech

Abstract:
Nanotechnology has been billed as the next great technological revolution - sometimes referred to as the “second Industrial Revolution.” It holds great promise in a number of areas, including medicine, energy, and materials science. But as the science advances and applications begin to emerge, researchers and policymakers fear that unintended health and environmental implications and a backlash of negative public opinion will stop the field in its tracks. To guard against such a backlash, a push is under way to make sure that, as the science moves forward, issues related to the environmental and safety implications and the ethical concerns of nanotechnology also are studied.
