India 'must regulate nanotechnology' urgently

Abstract:
Indian scientists have called for the development of regulations on the safe use of nanotechnology in healthcare and the environment.

The absence of regulations for nanotechnology in India and worldwide is a serious problem, said Prasenjit Sen, from Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University, at a meeting this week (8 October) in Delhi, India, to discuss the key problems that India faces in its quest to develop the emerging technology.

Several Indian institutes and firms are already working on nanotechnology products for drug delivery, water filters, arsenic removal, reducing water and air pollution, antimicrobial coatings and river cleaning projects, Sen said, and the country must develop guidelines on nanoparticle toxicity and biosafety.
