Abstract:
Most people agree that the environmental and health effects of nanoparticles need a lot more study. David Goldston looks at why so little progress has been made.

For at least the past four years, experts have been calling, even pleading, for a tightly coordinated, well-funded US government research programme on the potential effects of nanotechnology on the environment and on human health and safety (see Nature 444, 267-269
