How to Deal with Nanosafety?

Steven Abbott – Jun 23, 2017

Dealing with Nanosafety In my previous articles, I explained you the positive effect nanoparticles have, when used with controlled aspect ratio plus the possible challenges you likely face while formulating with them.

In this final article I want to talk about nanosafety. Although, nanoparticles cannot readily penetrate skin, but their key exposure risk is inhalation. Also, the shocking toxicological result adds on to it even more.

So, how to deal with nanosafety? Well, nanosafety is no different from any other form of safety. We assess the risks and take sensible precautions.

Read this article now and find out what all precautions you should take while formulating with nanoparticles.

It is not clear how the author comes to the conclusion that burning candle release nanoparticles full of polycyclic aromatic carcinogens. The wax used to make the candle is refined to remove most of the PAH to meet EPA and FDA requirements. Even for the 22 PAHs regulated there are only few which are considered as possible carcinogens. Even this result is questionable since it has not been successful to isolate the true alkylated PAHs from the refined petroleum waxes. Analytically we still could not positively identify those PAHs. People knowing less are bold to draw any conclusions irresponsibly.
