Abstract :

Nanotechnology is nothing but a branch of technology smaller in size, lighter in weight, stronger in strength due to its large surface area to volume ratio. The applications of nanotechnology have been widely used by several industries globally, especially in the development of innovative products using novel materials in cosmetics, paints, ceramic, textile coatings and pharmaceuticals. Nanoparticles have been designed in different morphological structures at the microscopic level such as nanospheres, nanotubes, nanorods, nanowires, nanoplatelets, nanoflower, nanoparticles and nanoneedle. By bearing in mind the importance of Nano dimensional material, the present review article, therefore, focuses on the reviews of the advances and development of nanotechnology applications to cosmetics, paints, textile and medical research.
