Clemson scientist to discuss benefits and risks of nanotechnology

Abstract:
Stephen Klaine, scientist, professor and director of the Clemson University Institute for Environmental Toxicology will speak on the past, present and future of nanotechnology at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, at the Hendrix Center McKissick Theatre.

Last year Klaine was awarded two $400,000 EPA grants to study a subject that did not exist a decade ago: the young field of nano-ecotoxicology, the investigation of the impact that nanoparticles have on the environment. With these grants, Klaine is studying the behavior of carbon nanomaterials in aquatic environments and how carbon nantotubes affect the aquatic food chain.
