Good Evening Hivians... Merry Christmas and happy new year to you all this new month and year of January.

** Introduction and history of nanotechnology**
After fifteen years ago a Japanese scientist called Norio Taniguchi was the first person to define the term nanotechnology in the year 1974. Nanotechnology mainly consist of the process of separation and reformation of materials by one atom and molecules. In the modern regime, nanotechnology truly began in 1981 when the scanning tunneling microscope allowed scientist and engineers to see and manipulate individual atoms , IBM scientist Gerd Binig, and some other scientist won the 1986 noble prize in physics for inventing the scanning tunneling microscope.

Definition of Nanotechnology
It is an a process of managing small scale and controlling matter at the atomic mass or it can be described as matter that are hundred in nanometers large or small.

Uses of Nanotechnology
It is used for clothing, furniture, car paint, computers and tennis ball etc.

Information technology like, security, medicine, transportation, environmental sciences.

It is used to improve many technology and industry sector.

Examples of Nanotechnology
Medicine 💊.
Food security.
Cosmetics.
Automotive electronics.
Textiles.
Environment.

Main types of Nanotechnology
Carbon based.
Nano composites.
Metal based.
Dendrimers.

Characteristics of Nanotechnology

It brings the capacity to recreate
material devices and system with the important responsibilities.

It deals with applying atom by atom together with structures that are small and invisible to the eye.

Importance of Nanotechnology

It aids in managing and restoring large amount of informations.

It leads to faster, smaller and more portable systems.

It helps in computing and electronics devices.

Advantages of Nanotechnology

It brings about faster and new kinds of computers.
It helps in power sources and life saving treatments.

Principles of Nanotechnology

It can be used as a text book by students
Undergraduate enrollment like, engineering, biology, and physical sciences are familiar with it.

         **Nanomaterial**

Is an a material that have particles of nanoscale dimensions or that can produce by Nanotechnology.

Examples of Nanomaterials
Azo natural colouring.
Phthalocyanine natural colouring.
Synthetic amorphous silica.
Silver.
Titanium dioxide.

Uses of Nanomaterials
It can be added in cement.
It can be added to clothes and other materials to make them stronger and lighter.
It can be used to design some description of drugs.

Properties of Nanomaterials
Aggregation state.
Topography.
Crystallinity.
Solubility.
Aspect ratio.

Nanotechnology in medicine

It involves putting of nano particles under development as well as longer range that involves producing nano robots to make repairs at cellular level and it is referred to as Nano medicine 💊.

The possible dangers of Nanotechnology in medicine

It may damage the lungs.
The particles of nano can get in the body through, skin, digestive system and lungs.

Purpose of Nanotechnology
It modifies the molecular structure of materials to recreate things.
It's microscopic view and universe gives possibilities to science and industry
