Issues in Nanotechnology

  • Environment: Being very small these particles can create environment pollution
  • Security: nano particles can be used in devices to capture videos or use as drones to launch offensive attack
  • Equity: developing countries have less access to funds to create nanotechnology products
  • Ethical:Using nano technology and devices in human beings can create a more powerful human being with enhanced human capabilities..should we pursue them?
  • Technical barriers


Issues in India

  • No single regulatory body in INDIA
  • Insufficient studies on toxicological studies of nanoparticles
  • Facilities required for research are less and outdates
