Teeny-Weeny Rules for Itty-Bitty Atom Clusters

Abstract:
IT is hard enough to regulate something when you know what it is, what it does, how it works and who is actually making it.

Nabil Al-Hadithy had none of those advantages when he began to consider what — if anything —Berkeley, Calif., wanted to do about regulating nanotechnology.

That issue became a concern for Mr. Al-Hadithy, the city's hazardous waste manager, when a federal research laboratory affiliated with the University of California filed an environmental impact statement three years ago for its latest building project — a "molecular foundry" to make nanoparticles.

"We sent them a bunch of questions, starting with: 'What the heck is a nanoparticle?' " Mr. Al-Hadithy said.
