What is nanotechnology The Hindu?

Jagadish spoke to The Hindu about the evolving technology. According to him, nanotechnology is a multi-disciplinary field and is already in use in some sectors. “It is being used in a big way in cell phones and computers, but the main challenge will be its use in medical and solar energy fields,” he said.

How nanotechnology is helping in health sector?

Nanotechnology is already leading to dramatic improvements in health care. Scientists are using nanoparticles to target tumors, in drug delivery systems, and to improve medical imaging. Some nanoparticle-based treatments are multi-functional; they can both find tumors and carry drugs for treatment.

What is nanotechnology in healthcare?

Nanotechnology — the science of the extremely small — holds enormous potential for healthcare, from delivering drugs more effectively, diagnosing diseases more rapidly and sensitively, and delivering vaccines via aerosols and patches. Nanotechnology is the science of materials at the molecular or subatomic level.

Is nanotechnology bad for health?

Nanoparticles are likely to be dangerous for three main reasons: Nanoparticles may damage the lungs. We know that ‘ultra fine’ particles from diesel machines, power plants and incinerators can cause considerable damage to human lungs. Nanoparticles can get into the body through the skin, lungs and digestive system.

What medicines use nanotechnology?

Applications. Some nanotechnology-based drugs that are commercially available or in human clinical trials include: Abraxane, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat breast cancer, non-small- cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and pancreatic cancer, is the nanoparticle albumin bound paclitaxel.

What is the potential of nanotechnology in India?

Nanotechnology holds enormous potential for human development and it is even more so for India. It can address the current problem of water pollution, disease diagnosis, etc. Despite the positive potential, very few in India are willing to research it and most of the funding is from the government.

How is nanotechnology used in the medical field?

Nanotechnology is the science of manipulating particles, molecules, or atoms, which are smaller in size of nanometers (A nanometer is a one-billionth of a meter). The future of Nanotechnology in healthcare is very beneficial in many medical treatments like a diagnosis of cancer cells or damaged organs, better transfer of vaccines,

How does nanotechnology help farmers and the environment?

Nanotechnology could benefit farmers, the economy and help prevent damage to the environment, said Pawan Kumar Agrawal , Vice-Chancellor, Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT).

How is Luxor nano based on nanotechnology?

Luxor Nano is based on nanotechnology wherein molecular structures are conducted at nanoscale metres Extremely small particles bind together to create a layer of impregnation on any surface protecting it from bacteria, viruses and dust particles. Luxor Nano will be bringing in technology for long-term protection.
