A special issue of BAOJ Nanotechnology is "Nanotoxicity". The field of Nanotoxicology deals with the toxic effects of nanomaterials at both the cellular and physiological levels. While there has been a substantial rise in the nanotoxicological studies over the past few decades, the overall outcome of the research efforts appears to be inconsistent due to the lack of standard measurement tools and appropriate testing methods.

Nanotechnology is a rapidly developing field within the twenty first century, and the commercial use of nanomaterials for novel applications is increasing aggressively. Nanoparticles are appearing as a useful tool for a broad variety of biomedical, consumer and instrumental applications that consists of drug delivery systems, biosensors and environmental sensors. As the variety of commercial and consumer products containing engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) frequently rises, the elevated use and making of these ENMs presents an important toxicological concern. Nanotoxicological studies are designed to determine whether and to what extent these properties may pose a threat to the environment and to human beings.
