Nanotechnology and the regulatory framework for nanopesticides
The American Bar Association (ABA) is hosting Program Five in its Nanotechnology Teleconference Series this afternoon. Title: "Nanotechnology and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act".
One of the most exciting new developments in pesticides is the prospect of nanopesticides. Nanotechnology is expected to be used to develop pesticides with new or enhanced activity, or more targeted application (such as through microencapsulation or affinity for specific target pests). Some consumer products are already being marketed as using silver nanoparticles with antimicrobial activity. EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs has already formed a Nanotechnology Work Group to develop a regulatory framework for nanopesticides.
