Methods and strategies for the synthesis of diverse nanoparticles and their applications: a comprehensive overview

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ongoing advances in nanotechnology research have established a variety of methods to synthesize nanoparticles (NPs) from a diverse range of materials, including metals, semiconductors, ceramics, metal oxides, polymers, etc. Depending upon their origin and synthesis methods, NPs possess unique physicochemical, structural and morphological characteristics, which are important in a wide variety of applications concomitant to electronic, optoelectronic, optical, electrochemical, environment and biomedical fields. This review provides a comprehensive overview on various physical, chemical and bio-assisted methods largely employed to synthesize and fabricate NPs of varying size, surface characteristics, functionalities and physicochemical behavior. The key applications of nanoparticles have also been discussed.
