Green Nanomaterials: A Sustainable Development for Greener World

Besides numbers of commercial manufacturing attempts, nanoscience is regarded as the key technology of the 21st century. It provides novel products and facilitates applications of innovative techniques in medicine, pharmacy, computer technology, and sensing. At the same time, it is recognised that their application may raise new challenges in the safety, regulatory or ethical domains. Such challenges provide a new word, called Green nanoscience or nanotechnology. It means applications of nanotechnologies must be environmentally benign and sustainable. Use of nanotechnology in medicine are especially promising, and areas such as disease diagnosis, drug delivery targeted at specific sites in the body and molecular imaging are being intensively investigated and some products are undergoing clinical trials. But the area of health and medicines is more sensitive than others so the use of sustainable and green nanotechnology reduces the risk of negative impacts on environment, plant and animals. Many nanotechnologies pose no new risks to health and almost all the concerns relate to the potential impacts of deliberately manufactured nanoparticles and nanotubes that are free rather than fixed to or within a material. Several studies have shown that altering the surface chemistry of nanoparticles has been effective in preventing toxicity of the core nanomaterials.
