Nanotechnology in Water Quality
In Nanotechnology, Nano membranes are used with the purpose of softening the water and removal of contaminants such as physical, biological and chemical contaminants. There are a variety of techniques in Nanotechnology which use Nanoparticles for providing safe drinking water with a high level of effectiveness.

Green Nanotechnology
Green Nanotechnology refers to the use of Nanotechnology to enhance the environmental sustainability of processes producing negative externalities. It also refers to the use of the products of nanotechnology to enhance sustainability.

Titanium Dioxide
Titanium is a metal commonly found in plants and animals. Titanium naturally interacts with oxygen to form titanium oxides, commonly found in ores, indigenous dusts, sands and soils. Titanium Dioxide is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium.
Titanium Dioxide, particularly in the anatase crystal form, is an excellent photocatalyst, able to oxidise most organic compounds. As the particle size is reduced, the effectiveness of the photocatalyst increases.

Role of Titanium Dioxide in Agriculture
Titanium Dioxide based Nanoparticles with profound effects in plant morphological, physiological and biochemical properties, could improve overall plant performance.
Titanium Dioxide acts as an inducer of secondary metabolite production and trigger for the activation of the enzymatic defense system, ultimately enhancing plant performance under control and stress conditions and thus acting as a promising stress protecting and growth promoting molecule.

Advancements in Nanotechnology
In the last decade, Nanotechnology has advanced and is finding practical applications. Some teams are developing nanoscale patterns on medical implants that can stimulate bone cell growth and positive gene expression.
Nature manipulates individual molecules to build the most complex things in the world. The goal of nanotechnology is to use systems of molecular machines to build whatever we want with that same level of precision, and do it cleanly.
