Silver Nanoparticles are more common than we thought!

If you've used silverware and worn copper jewelry in a warm, humid room, you've been in a perfect storm in which nanoparticles were dropped into the environment, say scientists at the University of Oregon.

Ever since nanotechnology emerged, researchers, regulators and the public have been concerned about the potential toxicity of the residual materials from nano-sized products that that might threaten human health by way of environmental exposure.

SNNI, ONAMI and the American Chemical Society's Green Chemistry Institute (ACS GCI) announce the publication 

A Fresh Look at Nanomaterials

In a recent interview with Research Media, LTD, Dr Robert Tanguay provided an insight into his work with SNNI on identifying hazards and risks of nanomaterials; research that has the potential to improve and protect human and environmental health. In the interview, he describes how we:

ONAMI and SNNI announce Greener Nano 2011 (GN11)

ONAMI and SNNI announce Greener Nano 2011 (GN11), May 1-3, 2011 at Hewlett-Packard in Cupertino, CA

SNNI announces GN11, 1-3 May, at HP in Cupertino, CA

SNNI's 6th annual Greener Nano 2011 (GN11) will be hosted by HP in Cupertino, CA, in conjunction with the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council (GC3) Innovators Roundtable. GN11 will explore challenges and opporunities facing nanotechnology in the next decade. We will address reproducibility in nanomaterials syntheses, and discuss methods in understanding nanomaterial properties and the impacts of nanomaterials in biological systems.

SNNI receives support for a sixth year

SNNI receives funding support for its sixth year. Since its inception, SNNI has received approximately $15M to support seed funding for innovative, high risk/high pay-off proposals to researchers and faculty as UO, OSU, PSU and PNNL. As a result of this support, researchers under SNNI have been awarded >$30M in individual project investigator and collaborative grants and published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers.
