Advanced Carbon Materials Market – Challenges
Health Hazards Related to Advanced Carbon Materials
Advanced carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes are widely used nowadays due to ease of synthesizing when compared with other types of CNTs due to their properties, such as high strength, diameter length ratio, and more. The simple addition of CNTs does not produce the desired outcomes in the rubber mixture as nanotubes coagulation because of its strong van der Waals attraction results in poor dispersion in a high viscosity of elastomer. The modification on the surface of the nanotubes is done using carbon black as fillers to overcome this problem. Carbon black particles can, however, irritate the lungs and cause coughing while irritating the eyes, nose, and throat when inhaled. However, the particles can lie deep in their lungs when individuals are exposed to high carbon black levels for several years, leading to bronchitis and ultimately a chronic condition called obstructive pulmonary disease. Longer fibers of carbon nanotubes may also find their way deep into the lungs, which can cause mesothelioma cancer in the tissue lining the lung in the worst case. All these health risks may restrain the advanced carbon materials market.
