Where and how nanotechnologies are used now
This section provides an overview of the main areas where the various nanotechnologies are used in products which may be available in the UK now or in the near future.
It is not possible at this time to give a definitive list of the individual products available. This is because there isn't a centrally compiled list and it is not currently required that companies disclose how they are using the technology in their products.
We have focused some attention on the most commonly used areas, giving an overview of what nanotechnologies are used and where there are potentially safety concerns.
On the full site we hope to give more information on all these sectors and create a more comprehensive listing of brand names. The safety section will also be more comprehensive.
