The Working Party is jointly supported by DECHEMA und VCI. Its aim is to identify both the advantages and the potential risks of chemical nanotechnology and to promote its commercial and technologically successful implementation by initiating appropriate measures with consideration given to ethical, ecological, social and economic aspects.
The Working Party focuses on nanoparticulate systems and nanotubes both in the free form and integrated in matrices. The discussion targets the use of nanotechnological products for the consumer, completed research on risk assessment of nanotechnology, and areas that still have to be clarified. The results of this internal communication will then be made available to the scientific community.
