The introduction of nanotechnology and its purposes in fields corresponding to nano fabrics and nano structures have resulted in an elevated main issue in regards to the safeguard and compatibility of those platforms with organic platforms. this is often quite actual as the major routes of nano fabrics touch are inhalation, dermal absorption, and ingestion.

Biointeractions of Nanomaterials addresses those concerns regarding toxicity and security of nano fabrics and nano structures. It covers the diversity of interactions in organic platforms and provides quite a few instruments and techniques used for review, together with in vitro and in vivo concepts.

Applications such as the detection of anthrax and the quantification of chromium in wastewater have been demonstrated using NPs (Alagarasi 2011, Wang et al. 2004b). 4 Fuel Cells Electrochemical fuel cells translate chemical energy into electricity. The electrodes are mainly responsible for the channeling of energy, making their surface area important. Another factor that plays a key role in the performance of the fuel cell is the electrocatalyst. In an ideal structure, an electrode must have a large surface area for a maximized contact with the catalyst, reactant gas, and electrolyte, thereby facilitating gas transport, supply, and good electronic conductance (Alagarasi 2011).

In spite of its high sensitivity and selectivity, PCR has major drawbacks, such as its complexity of method, susceptibility to contamination, cost, and lack of portability (Rosi and Mirkin 2005). Currently available protein detection methods, such as the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), permit the detection of protein concentrations at which the disease is frequently advanced. More sensitive NM methods would transform the physical treatment of many cancers and diseases (Rosi and Mirkin 2005).

NMs have been made for prolonged circulation by modifying their surface with chemical functional groups for targeted drug deliveries. This functionalization of NMs can potentially alter their interaction with biological components. , QDs), which may otherwise result in the release of toxins and free radicals in the body, leading to subsequent cell death. Both nondegradable and biodegradable NMs can cause detrimental effects to cells through their intracellular accumulation and unexpected toxic degradants, respectively (Aillon et al.
