Agricultural items impact such a lot features of lifestyles, together with nutrients and feed,feedstocks for bio-based items, and daily fabrics, resembling fuels, textiles, and furnishings. Advances in expertise are essential to tackle the longer term international wishes from agriculture. Nanotechnology is a promising box concerned with the original chemical houses of fabrics with a measurement of 1-100 nm. Nanotechnology has the aptitude to revolutionize agricultural and nutrients structures with a variety of purposes together with nutrients safeguard, caliber, product traceability, greater nutrient supply platforms, bettering packaging functionality, and enhancing agricultural and foodstuff processing. This quantity of the ACS Symposium sequence makes a speciality of the original demanding situations of utilizing nanotechnology to learn the agriculture zone and the nutrition undefined. This ebook relies on a sequence of nanotechnology-related symposia subsidized via the department of Agricultural and meals Chemistry at spring ACS nationwide conferences among 2009 and 2013. in this interval great growth was once made on functional functions of nano-based applied sciences to handle agricultural difficulties, together with these within the parts of foodstuff safeguard, improvement of recent value-added biomaterials, and nutraceutical/flavor supply. This publication initiated from the curiosity of symposium audio system to proportion their paintings with wider audiences. Fourteen chapters have been chosen and written for this detailed factor. The chapters have been constructed independently and are prepared in response to subject. The authors are from a variety of disciplines and comprise foodstuff scientists, chemists, engineers, biologists, scientific researchers, and physicists. The target of this e-book is to supply the views of scientists operating with nanotechnology to handle agricultural difficulties. The study offered inside this publication was once performed in right laboratory environments assembly facility, neighborhood, and nationwide security criteria

Research on silver colloidal nanoparticles has been extensively conducted to characterize analytes for SERS applications. Since it is relatively easy to prepare spherical silver nanoparticles from metal salt through the chemical reduction process, many researchers have used this process to fabricate nanosubstrates to detect different biological samples (44). Silver colloids contain nano size (10-100 nm) spherical or quasi spherical shaped nanoparticles. Most common agents for reducing silver nitrate salt are tri sodium citrate (called Lee-Meisels method) (45) or sodium borohydride (Creighton method) (46).
