Recently, Nanomaterials have found application in the field of Forensic science with appropriate functionalization techniques. It is possible to develop significantly less-toxic nanomaterials that have a greater advantage over conventionally used dyes and chemicals for the detection of trace evidence and detection of latent fingerprints, DNA, illicit drugs, fraudulent notes or currencies, chemical and biological warfare agents. Fingerprints are developed from several colored materials such as aluminium flake on a dark background and carbon soot on a light background. However, these materials have major drawbacks such as unclear images of the fingerprint. This problem is solved by using Nanotechnology-based materials.

The scarcity of pure water is a major challenge faced by the world in the recent times, due to the effects of pollution combined with global climatic change. Nanotechnology is promising in the field of water treatment due to the fact that nanomaterials show environmentally interesting chemical and physical properties like increased durability of materials against mechanical stress or weathering, high specific surface area and chemical reactivity of nanoparticles and large absorption as well as adsorption capacity. The adaptation of highly advanced Nanotechnology to traditional process engineering offers new opportunities in technological developments for advanced water and wastewater technology processes. a growing number of contaminants like micro pollutants are entering the water bodies. Nanotechnology in three aspects of water treatment namely ground water treatment, waste water treatment and saline water treatment has been studied in terms of their sustainability.

In contrast to the traditional non-invasive methodologies (e.g., X-ray, type-B ultrasonic, Nuclear Magnetic resonance (NMR), non-invasive diagnosis implemented by wearable devices creates new opportunities for remote and continuous health care monitoring in non-clinical settings, with the ability to detect developing diseases at intervals between routine examinations. The use of wearable healthcare devices also encourage people to take greater interest in their own healthcare in more convenient and cheaper way, thereby improving their compliance. Wearable devices have resulted in rapid development of various kinds of monitoring different parameters, such as pressure/strain, body vital signs (heartbeat rate respiration rate and temperature) and biomarkers that can be found either in body fluids (e.g. saliva, sweat and tears) or in skin odour and breath.

Smart behaviour occurs when a material can sense some stimulus from its environment and react to it in a useful, reliable, reproducible, and usually reversible manner. These properties have a beneficial application in various fields including dentistry. Materials used in dentistry were designed to be passive and inert, that is, to exhibit little or no interaction with body tissues and fluids. Materials used in the oral cavity were often judged on their ability to survive without interacting with the oral environment. The first inclination that an “active” rather than “passive” material could be attractive in dentistry was the realisation of the benefit of fluoride release from materials.

Shape Memory alloys is metals that exhibit the properties of pseudo-elasticity and the Shape Memory Effect. A solid state phase change occurs which involves a molecular rearrangement. The molecules are so tightly packed, however, that the metal remains in a solid state throughout the entire transformation. A temperature increase of only 10 degrees Celsius is required for the phase change to occur.

Nanotechnology provides high sensitivity, specificity, and multiplexed measurement capacity and has therefore been investigated for the detection of extracellular cancer biomarkers and cancer cells, as well as for in vivo imaging. The detection of cancer in the early stage has been hindered by the intrinsic limits of conventional cancer diagnostic methods. Nanomaterial has several characteristics that are ideal for oncology applications, including preferential accumulation in tumors, low distribution in normal tissues, biodistribution, pharmacokinetics, and clearance, that differ from those of small molecules. Nanomaterials have been used in many different areas of radiation oncology for imaging and treatment planning, as well as for radio sensitization to improve the therapeutic ratio.

New energy efficient technology based on Smart Materials fast developing and becomes increasingly cost-effective, with much shorter payback periods. Investing in renovation of existing building stock using energy-saving technologies, such as innovative Smart Materials, offer an opportunity for housing energy efficiency. Smart Materials are undertaken only on a limited scale; because of lack of knowledge about their changeable properties and dynamism in that they behave in response to energy fields. Technological chain involved in the design, production and implementation of Smart Materials in refurbishment of existing buildings could allow the energy performance of buildings to influence their value. Distributive electricity and heating networks also experience less load intensity due to Smart Materials, that making better indoor conditions by reducing building‘s exposure to the fluctuation of outdoor conditions.
