That research has already borne fruit, particularly in the use of nanomaterials for environmental clean-up and in beginning to understand the disposition of nanomaterials in biological systems. Some environmental applications using nanotechnology have progressed beyond the research stage. The purpose of this book is elucidate the needs associated with nanotechnology, to support related EPA programs, and to communicate these nanotechnology science issues to stakeholders and the public.
