The role of nanotechnology towards different field of application emphases by nanomaterials size, dimensions and properties. Varying nanometer size and dimensions leads to different nanostructures with unique properties, and the features of nanoparticles was identified by their synthesis route and analyses techniques. Also the chapter briefly discussed about significances and concepts of nanoscience and technology.
