Nanoscience and nanotechnology involve the ability to see and control individual atoms and molecules. Everything on Earth is made from atoms—the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the buildings and houses we live in and our bodies. Although, modern nanoscience and nanotechnology are little new in nanoscale materials were used centuries. Alternate-sized gold and silver particles created colors in the stained glass windows of medieval churches hundreds of years ago. The artists back then just didn’t know that the process they used to create these beautiful works of art led to changes in the composition of the materials they were working with.
Scientists and engineers are finding a variety of ways to deliberately make materials at the nanoscale to take advantage of their enhanced properties such as higher strength, lighter weight, increased control of the light spectrum, and greater chemical reactivity than their larger-scale counterparts.

Nanotech Engineering and Future Advancements
As nanotechnology engineering evolves, it will continue to transform how scientists research and produce new materials at the molecular level. In the future, researchers expect products that use nanoscience and nanotechnology to drive advancements in areas such as sustainability, medicine, and robotics. For example, scientists can use nanotechnology engineering to create drugs that target specific cells in the body or build materials that can grow artificial organs.
Second, we can clean up air pollution, including greenhouse gases, with nanotech catalysts that remove carbon dioxide from the air and reconfigure it from chemicals we can use in the industry.
How uses nanotechnology ?
New ways to enhance their antimicrobial properties using nanotechnology engineering.
Transdermal administration delivers a solution into the bloodstream through an individual’s skin. Transdermal patches typically deliver in a specific dosage of medication after being placed onto a skin.
It promises the development of food packages with upgraded properties that helps in prolonging the shelf life of food products. This review presents the most commonly used nanoparticles in food packaging, the significant changes they cause in the properties of packaging material, and the commercially available Nano-based packaging materials.
Solar power allows people to harness electricity from the sun without creating waste. The process of creating solar cells is energy-intensive and can produce large amounts of waste. Photovoltaic solar cells are make using layers of expensive crystalline silicon that are treating by caustic chemicals. Other researchers have been searching for ways to lower the cost of producing efficient solar cells through nanotechnology engineering.
