Future Directions in Nanomaterials Research for Biological Applications

Rahul Das, Manab Deb Adhikari, Pratap Singh Chauhan

Nowadays, nanomaterial-based technologies have reached a great height from the application point of view. However, this chapter is mainly focused on nanomaterials research for biological applications and its future directions. Depending on the shape, size and elemental composition, nanomaterials are capable of exhibiting some unique and remarkable functional properties. Due to such functional properties, nanomaterials have attracted much attention for biomedical applications and are being tested for easier treatment and diagnosis without any side effects. This chapter not only provides the expected biological applications of nanomaterials but also points out some information starting from key properties of biologically applicable nanomaterials to characterization through fabrication processes.
