Outline of nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is a complex scientific area involving the rearrangement of atoms at a molecular level, i.e. creating devices at a molecular level.[1] Atomic rearrangement depends on the material used because any alteration of the atoms changes the identity of the material. Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology ("nanotech") is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale.


The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology[1][2] referred to the particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication of macroscale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology. A more generalized description of nanotechnology was subsequently established by the National Nanotechnology Initiative, which defines nanotechnology as the manipulation of matter with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. This definition reflects the fact that quantum mechanical effects are important at this quantum-realm scale, and so the definition shifted from a particular technological goal to a research category inclusive of all types of research and technologies that deal with the special properties of matter that occur below the given size threshold.

NANOTECHNOLOGY LAW BLOG 24/03/08 DuPont and ED Will Hold Nano Risk Management Training Workshops

The workshops are intended to give participants the tools they need to: Understand (and explain to others) why nano-specific risk management is necessary; Assemble and leverage the internal and external resources to implement nano-specific risk management; and Begin implementing nano-specific risk management in an efficient and effective manner. The workshops will include: Interactive discussions of how to implement nano-specific risk management; Case studies of nano-specific risk management in use by companies and governments; and Sources of additional help for companies adopting these approaches. The first workshop will be held April 2, 2008, at the Sustainable Packaging Coalition in San Francisco, California.

MADISONCOMMONS 11/01/08 Nanotechnology Impacts Food and Food Processing

But this and other nano-food products, such as drinks that turn pink or yellow when microwaved, are in development and others already have reached the market and may be on your shelves. Madison, WI | Posted on January 12th, 2008 Nanotechnology, which involves the understanding, manufacture and manipulation of materials at the molecular or atomic level, is already impacting food and food processing, from nutrition delivery to intelligent packaging.

More than 600 nanofood products now are available on the market worldwide. NANOTECHNOLOGY LAW BLOG. Oberdörster G, Oberdörster E, Oberdörster J: 2005, 823-839.

ISB NEWS REPORT JUNE 2006 Au sommaire: A Nanotech Revolution in Agriculture and the Food Industry

Wood from plantations is used for the production of paper, cardboard, structural timber, and furniture. Intensive conventional breeding programs have produced significant genetic gain in some species, and genotypes with improved growth and form characteristics, resistance to pathogens, and those lending themselves to improved forest management have been produced. Biotechnology tools, such as gene expression analysis, genetic fingerprinting, marker assisted selection, and genetic engineering, contribute to a better understanding of the genetic basis for important commercial traits, and furthermore, these techniques provide the potential to introduce significant genetic gain. This in turn will ensure commercial viability and environmental sustainability of plantation forestry. 1. 2.

Les nanotechnologies représentent un marché en rapide expansion ; on les utilise déjà dans une variété de technologies et de produits de consommation. (Cliquer ici pour obtenir une liste de tels produits) Cependant, les matériaux contenant des nanoparticules peuvent être préoccupants pour la santé humaine et l’environnement, et il convient d’évaluer les risques induits par ces matériaux récemment développés.

Les méthodologies qui existent pour évaluer ces risques sont-elles appropriées ?

FOOD PRODUCTION 19/07/07 Nanotechnology used in additive to keep PLA clear. A new nanotechnology additive on the market is designed to add strength to polylactic acid (PLA) without diminishing clarity, its manufacturer claims.

FOOD PRODUCTION 19/07/07 Nanotechnology used in additive to keep PLA clear

Rohm and Haas said its new additive, Paraloid BPM-500, broadens the usability of PLA, a bioplastic used in some "green" packaging. Over the past five years packaging suppliers have been introducing various forms of biodegradable materials in response to projections that consumers and recycling regulations will drive demand for environmentally-friendly packaging. Mandates from giant supermarkets forcing suppliers to make the switch are also coming into effect. PLA, a biodegradable plastic resin made from corn, is manufactured by Cargill subsidiary NatureWorks in the US.

Rohm and Haas claims that the packaging industry's move toward PLA resin has been hampered by unmodified PLA being somewhat weaker and more brittle than traditional materials. European Advisory Services (EAS) 14/11/07 Nanotechnology use in food applications: a scientific and regulatory challenge. 14 November 2007 The growing use of nanotechnology in food applications poses new challenges for both science and regulation in Europe’s food and nutrition market, an industry expert has said. EAS-Italy nutritional product regulatory affairs manager Stefanie Geiser said that as the nanotechnology market continues to grow regulators and scientists are actively working to find regulatory and risk assessment models to embrace its research and safety aspects.

The first nano-food contact material (a silicon dioxide coating) has already been approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) this year, and a second, titanium nitride, is under review.
