nano-scale chemicals - boon or bane?
I was reading this
article about the uses of iron nano-particles. You know, nano-scale objects
are like new chemicals all their own. I’ve heard speculation that bucky-tubes
can be as dangerous as asbestos. I don’t know if that is true, but I can
certainly see where it could be so. When stuff is that small, it opens up a
whole new regime of reactions and chemical abilities. I think that the realm
of the ultra-small has infinite possibilities, but I don’t believe we should
blind ourselves to the dangers, either.
