Overview of Applications of Nanotechnology


Overview of Applications of Nanotechnology

Richa Tomar, N.B. Singh

Nanotechnology has changed science and technology. Every discipline is now making use of nanomaterials (NMs) and nanotechnology. NMs have size below 100 nm. Variety of nanoparticles (NPs) with different size and functions are available in the nature. Nowadays, NPs are being synthesized under controlled conditions in laboratories and are called engineered nanoparticles. Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary discipline and used in different industries such as agriculture, food, biotechnology, medicine, textile, electronics, drugs, etc. In Layman’s language, nanotechnology is the science of organizing, manipulating, manufacturing, and engineering products and materials at the nanoscale. This article gives an overview of nanotechnology applications in different areas.
