Talk Title
Green Quantum dots for Engineering Applications

Talk Abstract

Nano technological development of green quantum dots involves the design at small length scales with controlled physical and chemical properties that can be tuned or modified in function of their engineering applications. Green quantum dots has the possibility due to its unique optical and electronic properties, to be used in numerous engineering and technological applications such as bio sensing, solar cells, in vivo imaging, nanomedicine, Nano machines and Nano robots for specific drug delivery. Hence, there are almost numerous possibilities for efficient green quantum dots materials which are sustainable and environmentally benign. Utilization of these materials will increase sharply as there are increased concerns leading to pose potential risk to human health. Herein, principal characteristics, functional architecture of Quantum dots with their toxicity have been discussed in detail. hence, the urgent need of Green Quantum dots with green nanotechnology strategy for cleaner, non-toxic and energy efficient process is discussed.
