nanoparticles

Particles of very small size that are being exploited increasingly in medicine as in other sciences. Nanoparticles have recently been developed as delivery vehicles for drugs and for gene therapy. One unexpected finding emerging from this research is that nanoparticles of cerium oxide only 5 nanometres in diameter inserted into nerve cells in culture appear to increase the three week life of these cells to about six months. It is speculated that they are having a useful effect in mopping up damaging FREE RADICALS.

A current topic in the field of catalysis is the discovery that gold, dispersed as nanoparticles on metal-oxide supports, such as TiO2, exhibits high thermal and visible photo-catalytic activities, even though it is inactive in the bulk state.
Materials used for bioreduction of metal nanoparticles are Syzigium cumini leaf extract, double-distilled water, ethanol, magnetic beads, conical flask, and test tubes etc.
In the review, we focus on the effect of metallic nanoparticle on plant pathogenic microbes and th e possibility of these nanoparticles in protecting plant thus providing currently knowledge of different metallic nanoparticles which have been reported their ability to control plant-fungal pathogens at laboratory scales and to treat fungi-infected plants.
Scientists at the University of Connecticut applied pectin, a polysaccharide, as a surface coating to improve the physicochemical stability of sodium caseinate-zein complex nanoparticles. They used curcumin as a model lipophilic compound to determine the encapsulation and delivery potential of pectin-coated caseinate-zein nanoparticles.
Zhang believed they should also take into account the mechanics of the cells to design nanoparticles to achieve enhanced targeting, which forms a new targeting strategy called 'mechanotargeting.'
Metal oxide nanoparticles is a highly valuable material with various applications in optical, electrical and mechanical devices, catalysts, gas sensors, sunscreens and cosmetics (Rajendran and Sengodan, 2017).
