Preparing earth for a greener tomorrow by promoting plant extracts in green nanotechnology
Plants, especially medicinal plants, which make up a large part of our biodiversity, have an inherent potential to become miraculous. In turn, it can be synergistically combined and overcome its disadvantages. The period of treatment using herbal compounds to treat even a minor ailment is increasing. when it was impossible to fix the inefficiency of a combination. However, in this competitive course of innovative science and technology, it is possible to use herbal yet potent compounds. With the Nano size of the special features of the extract particles, some of their potential features become real and some of the benefits of their extracts increase significantly. The development of Nano solutions of polymeric nanoparticles, liposomes, microspheres, Nano emulsions and herbal pharmaceutical systems, Nano emulsifiers, etc. brings herbal formulations and herbal bio actives. Formulation of Nano herbal compounds/plant extracts can increase aqueous solubility, solvent, bioavailability, stability, reduce toxicity, penetration, stable preservation, protection against enzymes, etc. Studies in the field of plant materials with the help of Nano cavitation and ultrasonic devices are very promising. The results of researchers’ studies in the production of herbal Nano emulsion from aloe Vera and lemon, eucalyptus and garden thyme, etc., show the impact of nanotechnology in the processing and lasting effectiveness of herbal materials. Studies show that the improvement and promotion of the medicinal properties of beneficial plants and the best possible processing to help people’s health and increase income through the export of this produced product will be beneficial for activists in this field. With the help of Nano technology and the extraction of plant extracts, according to the biological diversity of Iran’s soil, cosmetics and hygiene are important in one of the most demanding sectors of the world economy.
