Nanotechnology Advantages and Disadvantages

  1. 1. WELCOME
  2. 2. By K.SURYA SAGAR Asst.Prof. of CHEMISTRY GDC NIRMAL
  3. 3. Introduction Nanomaterials are the particles (crystalline or amorphous) of Organic or Inorganic materials having sizes in the range of 1-100 nm.
  4. 4. Nano came from the Greek word “dwarf” means ‘billionth’ . A nanometer(nm)is a billionth of a meter. The concept of nanotechnology was first discussed in 1959 by Richard Feynman in his talk “there’s plenty of Room at the bottom” In 1974 Norio Taniguchi used the term nanotechnology for the first time.
  5. 5.  We are using Nanotechnology in various fields because of their unusual Mechanical,Electrical,Optical and Magnetic properties.  Carbon Nanotubes  Medicine  Information Technology  Nano robots nano sensors  Nano computers  Solar cells  Paper batteries
  6. 6. Advantages  With Nanotechnology we can create unique materials and products which are stronger, lighter, cheaper, durable and precise.  Industrial computers which made with nanomaterials can become a billion time faster and a millions time smaller  Automatic pollution cleanup.  Manufacturing at very low cost or no cost.
  7. 7. In medical field - end of illness (i.e. Cancer, heart diseases) Universal immunity- such disease like AIDS, flu Body sculpturing- changing of our appearance Less pollution Mass production in food and consumables
  8. 8. Disadvantages  Health and safety issues: Nano particles can cause serious illness or damage to human body. Carbon Nanotubes could cause infection of lungs.  Mass production in food and consumables.oil and Diamonds could become worthless.  Loss of jobs in manufacturing and farming etc.  Atomic weapons could be more accessible and destructive  Creates social strife through increasing wealth gap.  Nano pollution is created by toxic waste
