THE NUMBER of peer-reviewed papers showing health or environmental effects of engineered nanoscale materials has grown exponentially during the past few years, but their quality in terms of the characterization of starting materials varies dramatically. The situation has left government agencies scrambling to determine which studies are relevant for regulatory purposes.

When it comes to studying the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) aspects of nanomaterials, it is critical for researchers to know what material they . . .
