Nanomaterials are extensively used in a wide range of fields nowadays and very little is known with respect to their toxicity to humans and to the environment. This special issue would focus on the potential harm that nanomaterials could do the environment in specific. More importance would be given to engineered nanomaterials compared to naturally occurring nanomaterials.
