About this book
Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field that involves manipulating matter at the nanoscale, typically in the range of 1 to 100 nanometers. At this scale, the properties of materials can be significantly different from those at larger scales, leading to unique and often enhanced characteristics. Nanotechnology encompasses a wide range of scientific disciplines, including physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, and engineering. Here are key aspects of nanotechnology. Development of Biogenic Nanomaterials and their Benign Applications: This book is an attempt to bring a perspective to the innovations that areconstantly evolving in the field of Nanotechnology towards Life Sciences. Nanomaterial’s application in the diverse fields of Biochemistry, Microbiology, Biotechnology, EnvironmentalSciences andPhytochemistry has come a long way in the field. Development of Biogenic Nanomaterials and their Benign applications is an effort to bring together the knowledge of variousexperienced and talented science minds striving silently towards Nanomaterials and their biological applications. This book has chapters contributed by masterminds in the differentareas of Nanotechnology and Life Science. The book has chapters on current and trending topics like the role of Nanotechnology and synthesized Nanoparticles in the fields of Agriculture, Environment Such as Bioremediation, Medicine and Eco-friendly synthesis of Nanoparticles. Biogenic nanomaterials are nanoscale materials that are synthesized by biological entities such as bacteria, fungi, plants, and other microorganisms. These materials have gained significant attention due to their unique properties, eco-friendly synthesis processes, and potential applications in various fields. The development of biogenic nanomaterials and their benign applications involves several procedures. Microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, and algae can be used to synthesize nanomaterials. Plants can also be employed in the synthesis of nanomaterials. Plant extracts contain various phytochemicals that can act as reducing and stabilizing agents in the formation of nanoparticles.Thorough characterization of biogenic nanomaterials is crucial to understanding their size, shape, composition, and surface properties. Techniques such as transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) are commonly used.
Benign Applications:
Biogenic nanomaterials have applications in drug delivery, imaging, and diagnostics. They can be tailored to enhance the therapeutic efficacy of drugs and reduce their side effects.
Environmental Remediation:
Biogenic nanoparticles can be utilized for the removal of pollutants from air and water. They can act as efficient adsorbents for heavy metals and other contaminants.
Food Industry:
Biogenic nanomaterials can be employed in food packaging, preservation, and sensing applications to enhance food safety and shelf life.
Nanoparticles synthesized from plant extracts or microorganisms can be used in agriculture for crop improvement, nutrient delivery, and pest control.
Considerations for the sustainability of the synthesis processes and the overall environmental impact of biogenic nanomaterials are essential. Researchers aim to develop green and sustainable methods for the production of these materials.The development of biogenic nanomaterials and their applications is a multidisciplinary field that combines biology, chemistry, materials science, and engineering. As research progresses, it is expected that more innovative and environmentally friendly applications will be discovered, contributing to sustainable technological advancements.
