Nanotoxicology meets green chemistry: toward safe and sustainable nanomaterials
 
Over the last two decades a great amount of data has been produced on the putative adverse effects of nanomaterials in different biological settings, posing concerns for human health. However the importance of the physical-chemical characteristics in mediating toxicity of the nanomaterials has emerged, and research and development in nanotechnology is currently oriented toward the production of “safe-by-design” nanomaterials. The proposed symposium will focus on this aspect. In particular, the possibility to transfer the results matured within the nanotoxicology experience to the sustainable development of new chemicals and composite materials will be discussed. The importance of an even stronger multidisciplinary approach and collaboration with the stakeholders to address nanosafety and to guarantee safer marketable products will be highlighted.
Nevertheless nanotoxicology is facing the urgent need to better address some key underexplored fields, such as dosimetry in realistic exposure scenarios, potential adverse effects under chronic exposure and possible interference with reproduction and development. Including these aspects into the safe-by-design approach will support the possibility to guarantee sustainable nanotechnologies.
In these two symposia the most recent findings and the possible future advancements in nanotoxicology studies, needed to match the requirements of sustainable and green chemistry, will be presented by invited speakers coming from basic and applied research in different disciplines as well as from private companies.
