Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine-mini review


Nanotechnology is explained in terms of manipulation and exploitation of substances at the nano scale (nm) in the sequence from 0.1 to 100 nm. Nanoparticles are small sized particles with size upto 100 nm and are fundamental elements in the field of nanotechnology and are characterized by advanced features associated with their size, size dependent properties and morphology. Gold, magnesium, zinc, copper and silver are the different types of nano-material which have been used recently. From all of these nano-materials silver have been used in large scale due to increasing resistivity against many eukaryotic micro-organisms, viruses and bacteria. From early time to recent, human beings used the different parts of animal for folklore pharmaceutical purpose. Different parts and products of animals like meat, fats, egg, milk, father, venom, horn, skin, excrement and corporal secretion are use for the synthesis of well known medications. Plants parts i.e. leave, root, bark, fruit, flower and etc. are also used in folklore medicine and are very effective in treatments; many of these are proved in nanomedicine.
