Abstract

Metal oxide nanomaterials have unique properties that allow for numerous applications and uses in industry and consumer products. However, these materials also potentially pose a risk to humans, aquatic and terrestrial organisms, and the environment. This chapter will briefly identify applications of metal oxide nanomaterials. However, the major focus of the chapter will be a literature review of human health and ecotoxicology studies conducted with metal oxide nanomaterials.
