17.1 INTRODUCTION

The fast development and changes in life style has attracted peoples towards a more comfort and luxurious life. People are moving towards small, safer, cheaper and fast working products which not only reduces the work load but also help them to carry out their works at a much greater pace with minimum efforts. There have been development of gadgets that are much smaller in size like microchip, nano capsules, carbon tubes, memory cards, pen drives etc. which reduces the problems of transport, and storage and are also much faster and reliable by which we can carry out more of our work in less time. In the formation and development of such products nanotechnology plays a very important and vital role [1, 2].
