Magic Nano shows industry need for standard terminology

Abstract:
Andreas von Bubnoff: "Magic Nano," a protective glass and bathroom sealant that was recalled March 28 in Germany after causing sometimes severe breathing problems in consumers, may not be much of a nano product after all.

The confusion over whether or not the "Magic Nano" product really is "nano" points to the need to develop standards for terminology so that there is agreement as to what constitutes a nanoparticle, nanofilm, or a "nanofluid," said Sean Murdock, executive director of the NanoBusiness Alliance, the U.S. trade association of the nanotech industry. "If companies call things nano that are not and then have issues with them it does create a potential problem with perceived risk being associated with nanotech products," he said.
