Nanotechnology Applications

filtration system that can be professionally installed, or used as a do it yourself project for use in the home or business to protect against viral and bacterial outbreaks in the air and on surfaces (GENS, 2012). One drawback on the use of nanomaterials is the uncertainty of the side effects. No one knows what the long-term effects of these new materials will bring. Nearly, every new material that is the breakthrough of today brings about the lawsuit for injury of tomorrow. For instance, Yasmin...
