Biomedical Applications of Zinc Oxide Nano-Carriers: An Ingenious Tool

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The zinc oxide-based nanoparticles have become the center of interest among the research community, especially in the field of biomedical sciences. They have unique inherent features which help with reduction in biofilm development, anti-bacterial/microbial potential, in addition to transporting active drug molecules to the target site. Further, the concept of green synthesis can also be applied in their fabrication. The effectiveness of these nanomaterials can be improved by transferring them into a gel system. This book chapter focuses on the recent advancements, technical challenges related to surface chemistry, shape and in designing these nanomaterials.
