The only bad thing about this is that the researchers decided to use carbon nanotubes in the aerosol aspect. They chose carbon nanotubes because aluminum microparticles are a lung irritant. However, carbon nanotubes are of significant health risk:

Aluminum may not be as chic, but it would probably be safer.

Heh, yeah well the isocyanates sprayed by automotive painters are already pretty bad. Ied say theres no limit to how toxic something can be before its atomized into the air -______-

Just one strong unprotected exposure to to iso (a typical paint job) can result in a lifetime of health problems.
