OECD publishes nano-material risk results

Written by Brett Mathews

The OECD investigated the commercially viable nanomaterials across 110 different chemical tests, looking at issues such as environmental fate, toxicological and eco-toxicological effects, environmental toxicology, mammalian toxicology and material safety.
