Safety and Potential Health Risks

Health risks caused by nanoparticulate materials are suspected but until now not unequivocal proven.
Because of the potential risk, nanoparticles should be handled with extreme care!
Aerosols of nanoparticles, similarly like aerosols emitted by Diesel engines, should be avoided strictly.
Nanoparticulate metals, carbides, nitrides, etc. are potentially pyrophoric. Some of these materials must be handled in inert atmosphere.
