The latest word in commercial and scientific trends is “nano”. Nanotechnology is the development of the smaller with the wider applications. Every day we start to be surrounding by devices enabled by nanotechnology that help to make our life easy. One of the big issues in the implementation of nanotechnology in the current industry is the lack of simplification that leads in the development of these structures. Several techniques have been developed, but the extensive energies and times needed during process development have diminished the growth of this market. Cutting edge research has started to synthetically mimic the biological way of fabrication. The biological processes have evolved and used nanotechnology for millions of years. Trying to duplicate these techniques modern science develops similes, such as the use of polymers instead of proteins, and in recent years the re-discovery of high efficiency methods of fabrication and applications has been explored.
