Abstract:

In 2010, the global capacity for production of carbon nanotubes was conservatively estimated at 350 tonnes/year.1 With a substantial increase in manufacture, handling, use and disposal forecast, increasing human and environmental exposure is inevitable, and, as a result, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in their many forms are beginning to increasingly come under toxicological scrutiny. The enormous number of permutations and combinations of CNTs being handled in the materials’ discovery, production and biomedical ...
