California DTSC Redefines Nanoscale in Draft Green Chemistry Regulation

On June 23, 2010, the California agency, the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), released a draft of the Green Chemistry Regulation for Safer Consumer Products. Incredibly, in the draft, DTSC proposes to redefine the nanoscale as: “Nanoscale” means one or more dimensions of the order of 1000 nanometers or less. " Yes, that's 1,000 nm you're reading!Some other nano-related definitions that may interest you include the following:“Nanomaterial” means any form of an engineered chemical,…See More

Review of the ABA Conference: "Chemicals Regulation: REACHing for TSCA Reform"

Last week, on Friday, June 11, I attended the ABA conference: "Chemicals Regulation: REACHing for TSCA Reform." In my opinion, the conference was a success. It was well-attended by a range of stakeholders and the speakers' topics were generally interesting. Blake Biles did a fantastic job in his opening remarks setting the context in which TSCA was passed in 1976 and the challenges that EPA has faced implementing the statue. All in all, I think the conference was worth the investment.The…See More

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
