Nanobiotechnology is the application of nanotechnology in biological fields. Nanobiotechnology is a multidisciplinary field that currently engages researchers in conventional as well as advanced avenues of engineering and natural sciences.The recent developments in nanobiotechnology have impacted various socio-economic sectors, including medical, agriculture, food, textile, and other industries. Although the integration of nanomaterials with biology has led to the development of diagnostic devices, contrast agents, analytical tools, therapy, and drug-delivery vehicles, bionanotechnology research is still in its infancy. The full potential of developments in this field have yet to be realized.

This book discusses various nano-engineered materials or nanocarriers that are used in different situations. It presents 8 chapters that cover the application of nanobiomaterials in environmental remediation, nanofertilisers, nanobiotics against antimicrobial resistance, nanobiosensors in pathogen detection, and nanotoxicity assessments. Each chapter is structured into easy-to-read sections that explain fundamental and applied concepts of nanobiomaterials. Readers will gain a current view of the biotechnological application of modern nanomaterials and nanoparticles. The book is intended to be a primer for students and researchers in agriculture, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering courses.


Undergraduate and graduate students of nanobiotechnology and biomedical engineering.


This eBook titled ‘Nanobiotechnology: Principles and Applications’ will provide insight into the principles and practices of nanotechnology in biological fields. Nanobiotechnology, an amalgamation of nanotechnology and biotechnology has gained attention due to its diverse applications. It utilizes the power of nanotechnology to solve the problems of various aspects of biotechnology like agriculture, medicine, industry and many more. In view of this, there is an unmet need to compile different horizons of Nanobiotechnology. Additionally, the biological toxicity to nanomaterials needs attention.

We strongly believe this book is a reader’s delight and will help in dealing with the fundamental principles, and applications of nanobiotechnology. This will help students to understand the importance of nano techniques in all domains of biotechnology which will set a benchmark for further research. This eBook will cover topics like nano drug delivery, nano fertilizers, nano bioremediation, nanotoxicology, and nano biosensors to be written by authors who have quality publications in their proposed chapter area. We sincerely hope our efforts will be embraced by students with appreciation and enthusiasm for learning.
