* The sources/authors are diverse, and so are also the statements, assessments, opinions, proposals… expressed in these different documents. Nanocolors provides such a contrasted list for feeding the debate and considers all these reports are worthy of reading for self-education on nanotech and some of the “hot” issues in the field .
