Nanoengineering: Global Approaches to Health and Safety Issues provides a global vision on the impact of engineered nanomaterials both for the consumer/general public and in occupational settings. The book also presents a hint on what can be expected for the future from nanomaterials and their effects on our lives, both at home and at work. In addition, users will find valuable information on nanomaterials' irreplaceable value and their risks for health, safety, and environmental issues. Case studies illustrate key points and provide information on important processes. * Provides a global vision on the different aspects related to nanosafety and a synthesis of the information available* Gives all the information required for precision decision-making in a single book, offering both general public and occupational aspects* Contains separate chapters on each subject written by world-renowned contributors * Presents a complete vision of the problem, with perspectives on global approaches* Includes case studies that illustrate important processesÜber den Autor:
Professor Dolez received her bachelor degree in electrochemistry and electrometallurgy from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble in France in 1993, and her Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Sherbrooke in Qu bec, Canada, in 1998. She currently works at the CTT (Group, Saint-Hyacinthe, QC, Canada) and has worked in the past with the Research Chair in Protective Materials and Equipment for Occupational Safety and Health at the cole de technologie sup rieure (Montr al, Canada). Her research activities included the development of applied and fundamental knowledge regarding materials behaviour, especially polymers, elastomers, textiles and composites, when subjected to various types of mechanical and chemical aggressors, as well as aging, with a particular focus of personal protective equipment. During the last few years, she has developed a strong interest for the subject of protection against nanoparticles. In particular, she has designed a method for measuring the penetration of nanoparticles through textile and polymer protective membranes in conditions simulating occupation use. This allows her to study the interaction of nanoparticles with flexible barrier materials in various types of applied conditions and look for example at the effect of the nanoparticle colloidal solution liquid carrier and of sample deformation of nanoparticle penetration. Dr. Dolez has authored more than 50 publications, with several dedicated to knowledge transfer to workers and health & safety advisors, and holds four patent and patent disclosures.
