Big troubles may lurk in super-tiny tech

Abstract:
Today is the opening day of the five-day International Congress of Nanotechnology 2005 at the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame. On Thursday, lawyer John C. Monica Jr. of Porter Wright Morris & Arthur in Cleveland is scheduled to deliver a speech on "Preparing for Future Health Litigation: The Application of Product Liability Law to Nanotechnology."

In an advance copy of Monica's speech, he calls nanotech "one of the foremost innovations of the 21st century." While nano-robots are still on the drawing boards, far simpler "nanomaterials" and "nanoparticles" are "already being used in such diverse consumer products as machine lubricant, tennis balls, wrinkle-resistant clothing and sunscreen. In the near future, advanced new drug-delivery systems based on nanomaterials are expected to take the biomedical industry by storm."
