This book provides a detailed review on the interactions of nanomaterials with plants, nanodelivery systems in agriculture, the impacts of nanomaterials on seed germination, nanosensors for plant disease diagnosis and toxicity aspects of nanomaterials towards plants. In addition, nanomaterials synthesis and nanomaterials characterisation techniques, are discussed. This book also highlights practical aspects related to these subsections. The content of this text will help a diverse group of researchers to apply nanotechnology concepts in life sciences.
Although there are numerous books available on the subject, they mostly discuss recent research findings and very few covers the fundamentals and applications. This book will be advantageous for budding scientists who are interested in the field of plant nanomaterial interactions. It is obvious that current literature on nanotechnology has a bias towards chemistry and physics which creates a barrier for biologists to pursue nanosciences. This book attempts to address the aforementioned challenge.
