      Nanotechnology Deskbook

      By Lynn Bergeson (Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.) and Tracy Hester
      (Bracewell & Giuliani, LLP)


      anotechnology promises to have far reaching impacts on the economy,
      including offering technological advances in pollution control. While
      over 200 products that use nanomaterials are already in the marketplace,
      minimal data exist on the health and environmental effects of
      nanomaterials. This poses significant questions for companies,
      regulators, consumers, and lawyers.

      The Nanotechnology Deskbook guides the reader through the application of
      existing law and regulations to nanomaterials by exploring domestic laws
      and regulations and considering developments in the international
      context. It includes a focus on special business considerations when
      this technology is involved and concludes by discussing the development
      of an effective environmental governance structure for nanotechnologies
      that protects human health and the environment without stifling the
      development of this new field.

      "Â…This timely book looks carefully at the key statutes that govern
      aspects of nanomaterials throughout their lifecycles...There is simply
      no other single source that provides such a comprehensive overview of
      the governance structure and hot issues in
      nanotechnology."-Mark Duvall, Managing Counsel, The Dow
      Chemical Company

      "This is a `must have' guidebook through the legal maze of
      the nanotechnology revolution. . . No lawyer, businessperson,
      policymaker or government official can afford to be without this
      Deskbook."-Julia A. Moore, Deputy Director, Project on
      Emerging Nanotechnologies, Woodrow Wilson Center International Center
      for Scholars
