What is Nanotechnology ?

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are the study and application of extremely small things that can be used across all the other science fields, such as chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering. Nanotechnology offers the solution for many problems that we face in our life. Nanotechnology changes the physical and chemical properties of materials which enhance their properties. 


Nanotechnology in Healthcare:
Diseases pose a tremendous challenge to modern medicine. the application of nanotechnology to human healthcare, offers numerous potential pathways to improving medical diagnosis, therapy and even disease prevention. It can provide personalised yet more affordable healthcare while at the same time offering an improved quality of life for everyone.

Nanotechnology in Textiles:
The innovative potential of nanotechnology offers a wide span of opportunities for the textile industry. With the help of nanotechnology, textile materials can be improved for both professional and general public users; whether nano-engineered materials are integrated into the polymer matrix or coated onto the surface of the fibres, they offer possibilities such as improved durability, self-cleaning, and water/dirt repellent features.

Nanotechnology in Building Facades:
Nanotechnology is employed in the manufacture of self-cleaning windows, graffiti-resistant concrete and solar energy-collecting paints. Intelligent coatings are the largest application for nanomaterials in the construction industry. Architectural paints, water sealers and deck treatments, as well as treatments applied during the fabrication process such as scratch-resistant or anti-graffiti coatings, all present substantial market opportunities for nanomaterials. The materials offer a number of performance attributes that make them useful in coatings applications, including transparency, photo reactivity, UV blocking, and stain, odor and mildew resistance.

Nanotechnology in Construction Chemicals:
Nanotechnology in the construction chemicals industry include the use of nanomaterials and the application of technologies for the production of nanomaterials. Findings in Nanotechnology are selectively implemented in the formulations and manufacturing processes of construction chemical products to optimise their performance parameters and properties.

Nanotechnology in Cosmetics:
The applications of nanotechnology and nanomaterials can be found in many cosmetic products including moisturisers, hair care products, make up and sunscreen. This widespread influence of nanotechnology in the cosmetic industries is due to the enhanced properties attained by the particles at the nano level including color, transparency and solubility. Cosmetic manufacturers use nanoscale versions of ingredients to provide better UV protection, deeper skin penetration, long-lasting effects, increased color and finish quality.
