Green Synthesis of Nanomaterials: Cytotoxicity and Drug Delivery

About this Research Topic

Over the past few decades, the increasing requirement for green chemistry and nanotechnology led to the adoption of green synthetic routes for the synthesis of nanomaterials using plants, microorganisms, and others. Hence, the green synthesis of nanomaterials has been considered by researchers through an eco-friendly path, which has led to much research in recent years on the synthesis of nanomaterials using plants as a non-toxic, cost-effective, accessible, easy, and environmentally friendly synthetic pathway. Synthesized nanomaterials through green chemistry are non-toxic and can be a good choice for medical applications such as drug delivery, imaging, biotechnology, and biomedical. In the case of drug delivery, these nanomaterials can be a launching pad for the treatment of many diseases such as cancer. The synthesis of nanomaterials will be done with widely synthetic routes including physical, chemical, and biosynthetic routes which are very usual. Commonly, the used chemical methods are too expensive and employ hazardous and toxic chemicals which impose various risks to the environment. The biosynthetic route is a safe, biocompatible, environment-friendly green approach to synthesize nanomaterials using plants and microorganisms for biomedical applications. This synthesis can be carried out with fungi, algae, bacteria, and plants, etc. Some parts of plants such as leaves, fruits, roots, stems, seeds have been used for the synthesis of various nanomaterials. According to the unique characters of green-synthesized nanomaterials, they can be a very suitable choice for medical applications such as drug delivery, imaging, MRI, and etc. with the purpose of treating a variety of diseases.

We call for manuscripts that advance the current state of green synthesis of nanomaterials and medical applications specifically drug delivery. Themes covered in this Research Topic include but are not limited to:
- Green-based nanomaterials such as nanoparticles, nanomicelles, nanoliposomes, carbon-based nanomaterial
- The presentation of potential green routes for the preparation of nanomaterials
- The study of technological advances in green nanomaterials and nanotechnology
- Functional nanomaterials and their applications toward drug delivery and cytotoxicity
- Green Synthesis: Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials for Environmental Applications


Keywords: Green synthesis, Nanoparticles, Nanomaterials, Green Nanomaterials Potential Applications, Cytotoxicity


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
