About Centre for Nanotechnology

Nano Technology

           Rastriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY), Government of Karnataka and University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur is kind enough to extend the financial support to create the infrastructure on application of nanotechnology in agriculture to enhance the quality of agricultural produce. A separate well equipped laboratory on “Centre for Nanotechnology” was established at University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur, Karnataka.

Brief of the Nanotechnology

            Nanotechnology is a science which includes chemistry, materials science, engineering, physics, biosciences, medicine, environmental and agricultural sciences. Nanotechnology deals with the manipulation of atoms, molecules, or molecular clusters into functional structures to create functional materials and devices of vastly different properties. The first use of the concept of ‘nanotechnology’ was in “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom”, a talk given by the physicist, brain child of late Nobel laureate Richard Feynman in 29th December, 1959. Now a nanotechnology does not remain as a theoretical science rather it is being applied in all fields and gained the status of applied science and it is a multidisciplinary subject. Agriculture and Food Production are no exception to it. Hence, “The Next Big Thing is Very Small ........”  

Many benefits of nanotechnology depend on the fact that it is possible to tailor the structures of materials at extremely small scales to achieve specific properties, thus greatly extending the materials science toolkit. Using nanotechnology, materials can effectively be made stronger, lighter, more durable, more reactive, more sieve-like, or better electrical conductors, among many other traits.  For More Information....

Objectives of the Centre

  • Synthesis and characterization of nano materials
  • Studies on nutrient based nano food product.
  • Studies on analytical methods and monitoring of their release characteristics of insecticides from encapsulated forms in controlled atmosphere.
  • Studies on nano material based purification for improving the quality of water.
  • Development of nano based moisture barrier biodegradable packaging Material.

Development of nano based filter for dairy plant effluent treatment.
