Aspects of Engineered Nanomaterials

This new report, requested by Congress in P.L. 111-8, is the final of two completed by the National Academies.

Based on research criteria developed in the first report, this second study addresses to what extent short- and long-term research priorities have been initiated, evaluates research progress in understanding the environmental, health, and safety aspects of nanomaterials, and updates research priorities based on recent study results and emerging trends in the nanotechnology industry.

These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on September 12, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
