Call for Information on Carbon Nanotubes, Carbon Nanofibers and Quaternary Ammonium Compounds

The TURA Program has received a petition to list carbon nanotubes (both single-walled and multi-walled) and carbon nanofibers. The TURA Science Advisory Board (SAB) is beginning the process of reviewing these substances and is seeking additional information from stakeholders. For more information about nanomaterials, see TURI’s Nanomaterials Fact Sheet.

The SAB has also initiated a review of quaternary ammonium compounds, which are active ingredients in many disinfectant products, in addition to many other uses. TURI is gathering information and welcomes scientific information contributed by stakeholders.

Please send information to Heather Tenney.
