Multi-walled Carbon Nanotubes and Mesothelioma: An ICON Backgrounder
23 Feb 2009 | Contributor(s):: Kristen Kulinowski
Two studies published in the Journal of Toxicological Sciences and Nature Nanotechnology in 2008 have demonstrated that some multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT or MWNT) can induce in mice a response similar to that induced by certain asbestos fibers. At a first glance, certain MWCNT and...
What is a Nanometer?
out of 5 stars
02 Apr 2005 | | Contributor(s):: EPICS LSPM Team
Join Laura and Martin on a wild ride through the milliworld and the microworld to reach the nanoworld. Along the way, they discover how small a nanometer truly is.
Nanotechnology is not just a topic for physicists, chemists, and engineers. Laura explains the important role of biologists in this field, and shows how they may help provide clues to molecular assembly techniques.
