Title Evaluation of the risk of exposure to nanoparticles by means of a simplified method
Original title Evaluación del riesgo por exposición a nanopartículas mediante el uso de metodologías simplificadas [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information July 2010, No.58, p.22-27. Illus. 14 ref.
Abstract Considering the important gaps in knowledge for many variables related to nanoparticles such as toxicological properties, benchmarks or methods of assessing environmental concentrations, conducting a complete risk assessment is not an easy task. This article proposes a simplified, practical and affordable method of evaluation, using qualitative methods such as control banding.
