Nanomaterial Transformation in the Soil-Plant System: Implications for Food Safety and Application in Agriculture.

Several essential questions in terms of ENMs transformation are discussed, including the drivers and locations of ENm transformation in the soil-plant system and the effects of ENM transformation on analyte uptake, translocation, and toxicity.

From mouse to mouse‐ear cress: Nanomaterials as vehicles in plant biotechnology

The chemical and physical properties of nanocarriers determining their uptake efficiency and transport throughout the plant body are analyzed.

Impact of Nano-Fertilizer on Nutrient Uptake and Translocation under Climatic Changes Condition

Nanotechnology has become a very advanced and popular form of technology with huge potentials. It has been well explored in the fields of electronics, automobiles, construction, medicine, and

Interactions of nanomaterials and plants at the cellular level: current knowledge and relevant gaps

The present review intends to consolidate current knowledge on cellular and related interactions of NPs with plants to provide a more systemic picture of the above-mentioned interactions.

Nanoparticle-Based Sustainable Agriculture and Food Science: Recent Advances and Future Outlook

In the current scenario, it is an urgent requirement to satisfy the nutritional demands of the rapidly growing global population. Using conventional farming, nearly one third of crops get damaged,



Quantitative Understanding of Nanoparticle Uptake in Watermelon Plants

The purpose of this work was to study uptake, translocation, and accumulation of various gold nanostructures, 30–80 nm, delivered by aerosol application to a watermelon plant.

Surface Modifications Enhance Nanoiron Transport and NAPL Targeting in Saturated Porous Media

Rapid in situ degradation of chlorinated solvents present as nonaqueous phase liquids (NAPL) can be accomplished using reactive zerovalent nanoiron particles. Prior studies have shown that nanoiron...

Mechanistic evaluation of translocation and physiological impact of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide nanoparticles on the tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) plant.

The results indicated that there is a critical concentration of TiO2 and ZnO nanoparticles upto which the plant's growth and development are promoted; with no improvement beyond that.

Interaction of nanoparticles with edible plants and their possible implications in the food chain.

The uptake, bioaccumulation, biotransformation, and risks of nanomaterials (NMs) for food crops are still not well understood and the possible biomagnification of NPs in the food chain is unknown.

Absorption and translocation to the aerial part of magnetic carbon-coated nanoparticles through the root of different crop plants

It is shown that magnetic carbon-coated nanoparticles forming a biocompatible magnetic fluid (bioferrofluid) can easily penetrate through the root in four different crop plants and move using the transpiration stream in the xylem vessels and spread through the aerial part of the plants in less than 24 hours.

Uptake, translocation, and transmission of carbon nanomaterials in rice plants.

Carbon-based nanomaterials readily aggregate and are not considered potential contaminants in the liquid phase, but when discharged into the environment, the hydrophobicity of nanom material can be averted through their interaction with natural organic matter.

A review of the use of engineered nanomaterials to suppress plant disease and enhance crop yield

Nanotechnology has the potential to play a critical role in global food production, food security, and food safety. The applications of nanotechnology in agriculture include fertilizers to increase
