Nanoparticles are an area of increasing research interest in many fields. However, the risk data related to the safety, health and environmental impacts is still limited. How should lab researchers approach these uncertainties?
Join Chemical Safety Specialist Tilak Chandra and third-year Grad Student Katie Kruszynski from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as Research Safety Manager Markus Schaufele of Northwestern University as they discuss what their work in this field has taught them about safe procedures and potential hazards.
This ACS Webinar is moderated by Environmental Safety Manager Ralph Stuart of Keene State College and is co-produced with the ACS Division of Chemical Safety and the ACS Committee on Chemical Safety.
What You Will Learn
- The emerging concerns related to nanoparticle safety, both in the laboratory and in the environment
- How a “what if” method can be used for a hazard assessment to develop a safe operating procedure
- What research about nanoparticles in the environment tells us about potential hazards
