Abstract

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) in its 2006 document, Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials (available at www.nano.gov), identifies standards and standard measurement protocols as a critical, crosscutting research area needed to ensure full realization of the potential of nanotechnology in a safe and responsible manner. In response to this research need, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) sponsored a workshop on Material Standards for Environmental Health and Safety for Engineered Nanoscale Materials at NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland, on September 12–13, 2007.
