Carbon Nanotubes – Exposure

Up to now, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have not yet been subjected to epidemiological studies.

Because carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are composed exclusively of carbon, an element which is found in all animals and plants and in the air, a detection of CNT in the environment is difficult to achieve. Therefore there are currently no data regarding environmental concentrations of CNT and their distribution.

Although numerous in vitro tests have been performed so far, no final statement can be given concerning the ”toxicity” of carbon nanotubes (CNTs).

In vivo animal tests have shown that carbon nanotubes (CNT), depending on their characteristics and method of administration, are detected in different organs and cell types.
