  • Description:
    Nanotechnology is the engineering and manipulation of materials at the molecular level. This new technology creates materials with dimensions ranging from 1 to 100 nanometers (1 nanometer is 1 billionth of a meter). Particles created at the nanoscale have different chemical and physical properties than larger particles of the same material. These manufactured nanoparticles are known as engineered nanoparticles. Scientists and manufacturers can use nanoparticles to create new products that would be impossible with larger particles. This brochure addresses the following questions: 1. Are nanoparticles hazardous to workers? 2. How can workers be exposed? 3. Can nanoparticles be measured? 4. Can worker exposures be controlled?"
