Carbon nanotubes

Types, products, market, and provisional assessment of the associated risks to man and the environment


This report provides a detailed overview of the variability and physico-chemical complexity of carbon nanotubes (CNT) and how they are produced, purified and surface modified. In addition the report gives an overview of the different commercial uses of CNT now and in the future. Finally the report gives an overview of CNT-exposure in relation to consumers, environment and workers.

Last part of the report is providing an overview of the existing knowledge of effects on humans and the environment and this information is used in a preliminary risk assessment on basis of existing knowledge.
