The Nanoparticle Information Library (NIL) is intended to help occupational health professionals, industrial users, worker groups, and researchers organize and share information on nanomaterials, including their health and safety-associated properties.
NIL status information: NIOSH is working with its national and international partners to develop a web-based Nanoparticle Information Library (NIL). The goal of the NIL is to help occupational health professionals, industrial users, worker groups, and researchers organize and share information on nanomaterials, including their health and safety-associated properties. NIOSH has released the NIL web resource in draft form for public review and feedback. Its content will be refined and improved over time. The current hosting, administration, and maintenance of the NIL web resource outside of the CDC/NIOSH website is being conducted by Oregon State University (OSU) in conjunction with it's program to characterize nanomaterials. Provision of this web resource by NIOSH and the hosting of this web resource by OSU does not constitute endorsement of the views expressed or an endorsement or recommendation of specific commercial products, process, service, manufacturer, or company mentioned. Data are for testing and demonstration purposes only. The opinions and conclusions expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily those of NIOSH or OSU. The U.S. Government does not warrant or assume legal responsibility for the completeness and accuracy of the information and data presented on this website.
