Nano Database Goes Online

Abstract:
Sorting through the scientific literature on the environmental and health impacts of nanomaterials can be downright confusing. Because nanoscience cuts across many disciplines, a report on the toxicity of fullerenes, for example, is as likely to be published in a chemistry-heavy journal like Nano Letters as it is to be reported in Environmental Health Perspectives.

Now, anyone with an Internet connection can easily access this information with just a few keystrokes, thanks to a new database devoted to the environmental, health, and safety implications of nanomaterials. This catalog of scientific literature (icon.rice.edu/research.cfm) was launched in August by the International Council of Nanotechnology (ICON) with the goal of helping researchers and government agencies make informed decisions about the safety of nanomaterials.
