Results of last year's UK government-backed report into nanotechnology announced in July 2004, determined that new regulations are required to protect human health and the environment from the as-yet unknown threats posed by the emerging science of nanotechnology. The report also called for a £6 million research programme to investigate the effects of nanotechnology on human health. These thoughts are being reflected on a global basis.
Taylor & Francis Limited are proud to announce the launch of Nanotoxicology in 2005. This international journal aims to address research into the interactions between nano-structured materials and living matter. This interaction has been dubbed the 'wet-dry interface'. There appears to be a size range of aggregations of molecules or atoms where there are toxicological mechanisms which are determined predominantly by surface chemistry. It is precisely that size range which defines the scope of this journal. The Journal will include not only biological interactions but also all man-made nano-structured materials, for example, the interactions between living tissues and the surfaces of prostheses (e.g. wearing can produce nanoparticles) or in the context of 'eco-nanotoxicology' (i.e. the movement of nanomaterials through the biosphere, interactions with bacteria, invertebrates and vertebrates).
Specific areas in the field of particle toxicity in which the Journal wishes to encourage submission of papers include the mechanism of toxicity associated with diminishing particle size. The Journal is particularly interested in methods of toxicity minimisation, through coatings and other methods, in fields such as the medical and therapeutic use of nano-particles for the treatment of disease.
