NIOSH requests data to help develop exposure limits for nanomaterials

Abstract:
NIOSH is seeking scientific information regarding the dangers or safety of engineered nanomaterials as the agency explores the development of occupational exposure limits.

ENMs are chemical substances that have at least one dimension (height, width or length) that is smaller than 100 nanometers and are used in numerous industrial applications, including paints, electronics and medications.
