Green nanotechnology is a budding field of nanotechnology which relates to produce nano-range products to maintain sustainable and eco-friendly environment. It makes use of green engineering and green chemistry to achieve non-troubling eco-friendly nanoproducts. Nanoscience is of trans-disciplinary sciences which is the fusion of physics, chemistry, mathematics, cognitive sciences and life sciences.
Computational nanotechnology is the study, design, analysis, operation and optimization of nano-scale systems. Research technology is now running at top in order to manage the plethora of data gathered as a part of nanoscience and technology to develop nano-tools for the analysis and manipulation of this data to enters in to nano-informatics to create and design the Nanolibrary. For example gathering of information on all kinds of proteins which may be incorporated into the nanoshells. Secondly new informatics tools would be in demand to explore parallel interactions between biomolecules and atoms. n addition to making nanomaterials and products with less impact to the environment, Green Nanotechnology means using nanotechnology to make current manufacturing processes for non-nano materials and products more environmentally friendly. Nanoscale membranes can help separate desired chemical reaction products from waste materials and recycling of used materials. Nanoscale catalysts can make chemical reactions more efficient and less interfering. Sensors at thenanoscale can form a part of process control systems which adjoined nano-enabled information systems too. The second goal of Green Nanotechnology involves developing products that benefit the environment either directly or indirectly. Nanomaterials or products directly can clean hazardous waste sites, desalinate water, treat pollutants, or sense and monitor environmental pollutants. Indirectly, light weigh tnano-composites for automobiles and other means of transportation could save fuel and reduce wastage of materials required for production, nanotechnology-enabled fuel cells and light-emitting diodes could reduce pollution from energy generation and help conserve fossil fuels, nanoscale surface coatings could reduce or eliminate many cleaning chemicals and enhanced battery life could lead to less material use and less wastage. Green Nanotechnology takes a broad view of nanomaterials and nanoproducts that ensured minimal unforeseen consequences and full life anticipation of their impacts.
