Wonder of Nanotechnology - A Review
Published on Jan 1, 2014
Nanotechnology is the creation and utilization of materials, devices, system through the control of the properties and structure of the matter at the nanometric scale. Nanotechnology is an emerging technology that has the potential for use in a broad array of foods, medical products and cosmetics. These nanomaterials can have different chemical, physical as well as biological properties. This review is focused on applications of nanotechnology in agriculture as well as in medicines. Nanotechnology can be used for combating the plant diseases either by controlled delivery of functional molecules or as diagnostic aids for disease detection. The potential contribution of nanotechnology in the medical sector is extremely broad and includes new diagnostic tools, imaging agents and methods, drug delivery systems and pharmaceuticals, therapies, implants and tissue engineering.
