    Definition: nanotechis the study of the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale.
    Nanotechnology uses techniques, processes and materials at the supramolecular level, approximately in a range between 1-100 nanometers (nm), in order to create new properties and to stimulate particular desired functionalities.

    • Carbon nanotubes
    • 4. Molecular Manufacturing
    • 5. Nano materials
  • Carbon nanotubes
    Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon with a cylindrical nanostructure
    Nanotubes are members of the fullerene structural family, which also includes the spherical buckyballs. The ends of a nanotube might be capped with a hemisphere of the buckyball structure. Their name is derived from their size, since the diameter of a nanotube is on the order of a few nanometers (approximately 1/50,000th of the width of a human hair), while they can be up to several millimeters in length (as of 2008). Nanotubes are categorized as single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs) and multi-walled nanotubes (MWNTs).
    The nature of the bonding of a nanotube is described by applied quantum chemistry, specifically, orbital hybridization. The chemical bonding of nanotubes is composed entirely of sp2 bonds, similar to those of graphite. This bonding structure, which is stronger than the sp3 bonds found in diamonds, provides the molecules with their unique strength. Nanotubes naturally align themselves into "ropes" held together by Van der Waals forces. Under high pressure, nanotubes can merge together, trading some sp2 bonds for sp3bonds, giving the possibility of producing strong, unlimited-length wires through high-pressure nanotube linking.
    Multi-walled nanotubes (MWNT) consist of multiple rolled layers (concentric tubes) of graphite. There are two models which can be used to describe the structures of multi-walled nanotubes. In the Russian Doll model, sheets of graphite are arranged in concentric cylinders, e.g. a (0,8) single-walled nanotube (SWNT) within a larger (0,10) single-walled nanotube. In the Parchment model, a single sheet of graphite is rolled in around itself, resembling a scroll of parchment or a rolled newspaper. The interlayer distance in multi-walled nanotubes is close to the distance between graphene layers in graphite, approximately 3.3 Å (330 pm).
  • 6. Different types of carbon nanotubes
    Single walled
    Multi walled
  • 7. Application of carbon nanotubes
    Carbon Nanotubes in Batteries and Capacitors
    Carbon Nanotubes in Fuel Cell Applications
     carbon nanotubes with biological systems can significantly improve medical science — especially diagnostics and disease treatment.
    Carbon nanotubes and graphene exhibit extraordinary electrical properties for organic materials, and have a huge potential in electrical and electronic applications such as sensors, semiconductor devices, displays, conductors and energy conversion devices (e.g., fuel cells, harvesters and batteries).
    Carbon Nanotubes May Exhibit High Thermal Conductivity
  • 8. Molecular manufacturing
    molecular manufacturing, is a term given to the concept of engineered nanosystems (nanoscale machines) operating on the molecular scale. It is especially associated with the concept of a molecular assembler, a machine that can produce a desired structure or device atom-by-atom using the principles of mechanosynthesis.
    molecular manufacturing also has the potential to revolutionize medicine. For example, sensors that are smaller than blood cells could be produced inexpensively. When released into a patient's blood stream in large numbers, these sensors could provide very accuratediagnoses.
    Nanorobots could be built using molecular manufacturing to perform surgicalprocedures in a more precise way.
  • 9. Nanomaterials
    Nanomaterials is a field which takes a materials science-based approach to nanotechnology. It studies materials with morphological features on the nanoscale, and especially those which have special properties stemming from their nanoscale dimensions.
    Nanoparticles or nanocrystals made of metals, semiconductors, or oxides are of particular interest for their mechanical, electrical, magnetic, optical, chemical and other properties. Nanoparticles have been used as quantum dots and as chemical catalysts.
  • 10. Types of nanomaterials
  • 11. Properties of nanomaterials
    large fraction of surface atoms
    high surface energy
    spatial confinement
    reduced imperfections
    high Young’s modulus and high tensile strength
    improve adhesion,
    durability, and abrasion resistance
    extreme high thermal conductivity in axial directions,leaving high anisotropy in the heat transport in the materials
  • 12. Application of nanomaterials
    Sunscreens and Cosmetics : Nanosized titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are currently used in some sunscreens, as they absorb and reflect ultraviolet (UV) rays and yet are transparent to visible light and so are more appealing to the consumer.
    Composites : An important use of nanoparticles and nanotubes is in composites, materials that combine one or more separate components and which are designed to exhibit overall the best properties of each component. This multi-functionality applies not only to mechanical properties, but extends to optical, electrical and magnetic ones
    Phosphors for High-Definition TV
    Elimination of Pollutants
    High-Sensitivity Sensors

  • 14. Nanotechnology in Medicine
    Employing nano-particles to deliver drugs, heat, light or other substances to specific cells in the human body.
    . Engineering particles to be used in this way allows detection and/or treatment of diseases or injuries within the targeted cells, thereby minimizing the damage to healthy cells in the body.
    Development nanocrystalline silver is already being used as a antimicrobial agent in the treatment of wounds
    Nanotubes used in broken bones to provide a structure for new bone material to grow.
    Nanoparticles that can attach to cells infected with various diseases and allow a doctor to identify, in a blood sample, the particular disease. 
    Nanoshells that concentrate the heat from infrared light to destroy cancer cells with minimal damage to surrounding healthy cells.  For a good visual explanation of nanoshells

    Nanotechnology is having an impact on several aspects of food science, from how food is grown to how it is packaged,that will make a difference not only in the taste of food, but also in food safety, and the health benefits that food delivers. 
    Clay nanocomposites are being used to provide an impermeable barrier to gasses such as oxygen or carbon dioxide in lightweight bottles, cartons and packaging films
    Storage bins are being produced with silver nanoparticles embedded in the plastic. The silver nanoparticles kill bacteria from any material that was previously stored in the bins, minimizing health risks from harmful bacteria.
