Nanomaterials uses applications of potential interest to ESOH
nanodiamonds tox data - possible substitute for hexchrome and other metal fini (PDF)
Independent studies that indicate that the purity and inertness of nanodiamond reduces the risk that is posses a biohazard. Due to widespread concern about the growing use and presence of nanomaterials in the workplace, I am sure there will be many more studies. However, in comparison to other nanomaterials, including carbon-based materials, nanodiamond looks very favorable.

EPA Nano 2007 Feb (PDF)
The EPAs final document which was published in the Federal Register 15 Feb 07, provides a series of recommendations for research on risks and potential exposure pathways for nanomaterials; development of methods for detecting nanomaterials; and recommendations for promoting green manufacturing and energy. Many of the recommendations were included in a draft released in late 2005, but the increased focus on green applications of nanomaterials is new.
