Description of Project LIFE NanoEXPLORE
Engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) are increasingly used worldwide. The properties of ENMs differ significantly from those of bulk chemicals of the same composition: they have a much larger specific surface area and surface activity or much larger deposition rate in respiratory systems. This may lead to unanticipated effects in human health and ecosystems, causing adverse effects on the metabolism of living beings. <p>Little is known about the levels, nature and possible adverse effects after exposure to engineered nanomaterials in indoor workplaces and urban areas. No specific biomarkers have been identified or validated to detect early effec
