Free Access to ACS Nano Virtual Issue on Nanotoxicology

Nanotoxicology Virtual Issue

We are pleased to present this Virtual Issue from ACS Nano devoted to nanotoxicology, with articles selected by Associate Editor Wolfgang Parak and Editor-in-Chief Paul Weiss. We are pleased to offer free access to these articles from ACS Publications through the end of 2010.

The topic of nanotoxicology has been gaining importance because, as the use of products containing nanoparticulate materials becomes more widespread, safety concerns must be considered. The articles selected for this Virtual Issue demonstrate the breadth of research coverage and include the latest developments in this area.

Several additional Virtual Issues from ACS Nano will be released in 2011. We hope they will be a valuable resource for the scientific community.
