In 1959 a renowned physicist Richard Feynman in his talk “There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom” discussed about nanotechnology in which he described the possibility of synthesis via direct manipulation of atoms. The term "nano-technology" was first used by Norio Taniguchi in 1974. Nanotechnology works at the very initial level of atoms and molecules for the living systems. Nanotechnology accelerates the developments of many techniques and tools for society. At nanoscale, unifying features of nature give a new foundation for fundamental research and new potential applications. Nanotechnology brings knowledge, innovation, and integration of technology together with novel nanomaterials. Nanotechnology research has shown developments due to innovative, advantageous properties of nanomaterials.
