Abstract

With growing awareness of the need for environmental sustainability, the importance of manufacturing and applying green nanomaterials (GNMs) has gained significant recognition. This chapter applies 12 principles of green chemistry in nanotechnology, precisely defining green nanotechnology and navigating the design of new technologies for joint economic, social, and health/environmental benefit. It then discusses in detail various emerging GNMs and the possibilities of designing unexplored ones. The chemical methods of metallic nanoparticle (MNPs) synthesis, although efficient, productive, and reproducible, do not give biocompatibility to MNPs. In such procedures, traces of unreacted reagents or unwanted byproducts remain in the colloidal solution, rendering the MNPs inappropriate for biological application. Researchers realized that the synthesis procedures rather than the product imparted the toxic property to the MNPs.
