ShieldSquare CaptchaNanostructured materials NSMs have increasingly been used as a substitute for antibiotics and additives in various products to impart microbicidal effect. In particular, use of silver nanoparticles AgNPs has garnered huge researchers' attention as potent bactericidal agent due to the inherent antimicrobial property of the silver metal. Moreover, other nanomaterials carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene, chitosan, etc. The present review exclusively emphasizes on materials that possess antimicrobial activity in nanoscale range and describes their various modes of antimicrobial action. It also entails broad classification of NSMs along with their application in various fields. Likewise, use of zinc oxide nanoparticles ZnO-NPs and titanium dioxide nanoparticles TiO 2 -NPs as additives in consumer merchandises and nanoscale chitosan NCH in medical products and wastewater treatment.

Green synthesized ZnO nanoparticles against bacterial and fungal pathogens. In vitro susceptibility of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains to mupirocin. Not many reports exist on the mode of antimicrobial action of fullerenes C 60 and their derivatives thus, it would not be wise to propose their plausible applications. The Handbook will serve the objectives of providing state-of-the-art information on many aspects of nanostructured materials and emerging nanotechnology!
