    This review provides information and details about the construction of nanosensors based on lipid membranes that can be utilized to monitor toxicants in food, environmental pollutants, and analytes of clinical interest. Nanosensors based on lipid films have been used to rapidly detect a wide range of these analytes, and can offer several advantages towards analytical instrumentation such as rapid response times, high sensitivity and selectivity, portability for in the field uses and small size. A description of the preparation of these devices for the rapid detection of toxicants in foods, environmental pollutants, and analytes of clinical interest is provided in this review.

    Polymer materials have been playing an essential role in the advancement of drug delivery systems by serving as controlled, cyclic and tunable release of therapeutic compounds. Recent advancements in the functional materials enabling us to rationally engineer, tailor the polymer morphological characteristics with respect to the desired cargo and perform multiple biological functions. The flexibility of smart electro active polymers allowed the progression in bio-medical devices that can carry targeted polymer-drug conjugates for direct intercellular delivery. This review summarizes a general overview of few latest developments in the bio-compatible functional polymer materials and applications in topical, intravenous and carrier drug conjugates.

    Titanium dioxide (TiO2) powder was synthesized by co-precipitation method with cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) act as a surfactant. The prepared TiO2 sample was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and UV-Vis absorption spectra to analysis the structural, morphological and optical properties studies were prepared TiO2 nanopowder was pasted on conducting surface of FTO glass slide by using doctor blade method with triton X-100 as a binder. Chlorophyll and betalain dye pigment extracted from tridax procumbens leaf and beetroot, which was used as a sensitizer for natural dye sensitized solar cell (NDSSC). The optical properties of the natural dyes were also investigated to aqueous lugol’s iodine was used as an electrolyte. The 1:1 ratio of Chlorophyll and betalain dye mixer was used as a sensitizer in NDSSC have cell efficiency of 0.11% was obtained under one sun solar simulator.

    Silver has a long and intriguing history as an antibiotic in human health care. The bactericidal activity of silver is well documented. Earlier colloidal silver was used, however with the development of nanotechnology, silver nanoparticles were synthesized which has many fold advantages over the colloid silver. Silver nanoparticles have the ability to penetrate bacterial cell walls, changing the structure of cell membranes and even resulting in cell death. hey can increase the permeability of cell membranes, produce reactive oxygen species, and interrupt replication of deoxyribonucleic acid by releasing silver ions. Therefore these particles can kill drug resistant bacteria most effectively. The antibacterial activity of silver nanoparticles is not only size—but also shape-dependent.
