|Abstract: ||Nanotechnology in general and as it relates to drug delivery in humans has been reviewed in
a two-part article, the first part of which is this paper. In this paper, nanotechnology in nature,
history of nanotechnology and methods of synthesis are discussed, while also outlining its
applications, benefits and risks. Nanotechnology is an industrial revolution, based on
integration of disciplines that could change every facet of human life. Some examples of
changes brought about by reduction in particle sizes to the physical, chemical and biological
properties of substances, compounds and drug products have been cited. The benefits of
nanotechnology are enormous and so these benefits should be maximized while efforts are
made to reduce the risks.|
