Nanotechnology: New Promises, New Dangers

Availability: Ready to download

Buckyballs. Quantum dots. Golden triangles. Organic light-emitting diodes. Welcome to the world of nanotechnology - the engineering of new materials and new products, the use of new manufacturing techniques, all exploiting properties possessed at the infinitesimally small, or nano, scale. Virtually every large corporation now has a nanotechnology R & D operation. The US go Buckyballs. Quantum dots. Golden triangles. Organic light-emitting diodes. Welcome to the world of nanotechnology - the engineering of new materials and new products, the use of new manufacturing techniques, all exploiting properties possessed at the infinitesimally small, or nano, scale. Virtually every large corporation now has a nanotechnology R & D operation. The US government is putting in serious investment. Huge promises are held out in the fields of medicine, energy, computing. And, more ominously, the Pentagon is exploring nano applications in a new generation of hi-tech weaponry. But as this book makes clear: * There is little public debate, even among consumer groups or trade unions, about the ways in which nanotechnologies are creeping into our lives as consumers and workers. * Regulatory agencies take no account of scale when assessing the safety of new products and there is no regulatory framework for nanotechnology even in industrialized countries. * Little research is going on into the health and environmental consequences, and safety, of nano-materials. This book explains the fast moving world of the new technology and who controls it. It explores the potential consequences - the upsides as well as the downsides - for individuals, the environment, and relations between the powers. Nanotechnology could bridge or widen the gap between developing and industrialised countries - that is a political decision that civil society must address.

    وليد خالد القاضي

    الكتاب في الإجمال جيد لغير المتخصص فهو يعطي نبذة تاريخية عن تقنية النانو، وعن تأثيرها على الاقتصاد العالمي، ويطرح رؤى مستقبلية لها ما عبت عليه في هذا الكتاب هو رداءة الترجمة في بعض فصوله مقابل جودتها في أخرى ويبدو أن هذا يعود إلى كون المترجمين اثنين

    اريك دركسلر المنظر الاول للمارد الجديد تقنية النانو الكمال المحسوس الذى يقترب منه العالم ضخامة الفجوة التى ستتولد بين من يمتلك ومن لا يمتلك هذه التقنية التقدمية آمال وطموحات فى مستقبل افضل فى جميع المجالات

    الكتاب يحتوي على معلومات شيقة ومفيدة لكن طريقة السرد لم تعجبني يوجد تكرار للمعلومات وأيضاً عدم تنظيم لعناصر الموضوع مما يسبب تشتت وتملل القارئ.
