Nanotechnology has proved to be efficient in laboratory diagnosis of infections in general and viral detection in particular.
Nanotechnology has a role in solving different environmental and health issues which occurs with the excessive usage of chemical fertilizers in agricultural practices. Many nanoparticles show improved plant growth and an increase in crop production when used in proper concentrations.
Nanotoxicology studies the toxicity of nanomaterials or nanoparticles. Materials that are toxic at the nanoscale might not be toxic at the macroscale.
Global food security is under serious threat across the world because of the limited availability of natural resources such as fertile land, quality seeds, and water.
The development of agriculture is essential due to the rapid growth in population, creating a demand for food. Sustainable growth of the agricultural system using new and innovative techniques such as nanotechnology, brings positive increases in agricultural produce.
In the global energy market, hydrocarbons have been the principal source of energy supply. Global energy demand has increased significantly over the last few decades, but the discovery of new oil and gas resources is diminishing constantly.
A borehole is a narrow shaft drilled into the ground, either vertically or horizontally. It is constructed for different purposes, such as the extraction of water, petroleum, and gases, etc.
The study of cell-nanoparticle interactions is vital for researchers specializing in the fields of nanomedicine and nanotoxicology. In nanotoxicology, the quantity of nanoparticles internalized by the cells or attached to the external surfaces of cells, regulate the toxic profile of those particles.
A nano lubricant was developed by suspending a small number of nanoparticles onto conventional heat transfer fluids. Nano lubricants have the capability to reduce frictional losses and enhance the transfer of heat.
Nano-FTIR is a scanning probe technique that is based on the combination of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy.
