Agricultural items effect such a lot elements of existence, together with meals and feed,feedstocks for bio-based items, and daily fabrics, resembling fuels, textiles, and furnishings. Advances in know-how are essential to tackle the longer term worldwide wishes from agriculture. Nanotechnology is a promising box excited about the original chemical houses of fabrics with a measurement of 1-100 nm. Nanotechnology has the capability to revolutionize agricultural and meals platforms with numerous purposes together with nutrition defense, caliber, product traceability, higher nutrient supply structures, improving packaging functionality, and enhancing agricultural and nutrients processing. This quantity of the ACS Symposium sequence makes a speciality of the original demanding situations of making use of nanotechnology to learn the agriculture zone and the meals undefined. This publication relies on a chain of nanotechnology-related symposia backed through the department of Agricultural and nutrients Chemistry at spring ACS nationwide conferences among 2009 and 2013. in this interval super growth was once made on sensible purposes of nano-based applied sciences to handle agricultural difficulties, together with these within the components of meals defense, improvement of recent value-added biomaterials, and nutraceutical/flavor supply. This publication initiated from the curiosity of symposium audio system to percentage their paintings with wider audiences. Fourteen chapters have been chosen and written for this exact factor. The chapters have been built independently and are prepared in keeping with subject. The authors are from quite a lot of disciplines and contain foodstuff scientists, chemists, engineers, biologists, scientific researchers, and physicists. The target of this booklet is to supply the views of scientists operating with nanotechnology to handle agricultural difficulties. The learn awarded inside this ebook used to be performed in right laboratory environments assembly facility, neighborhood, and nationwide security criteria

Many different methods such as vacuum evaporation, lithography to make nanoparticle array, laser ablation, electrode deposition, and colloid preparation (27–30) have been developed and proposed to prepare metal substrates with nanostructures for SERS. Each method has advantages and disadvantages to fullfill the requirements as substrate, such as optical properties, reproducibility, surface morphology, stability, and signal enhancement factors (31). Among various methods, colloidal nanostructures prepared with gold and silver metals have been most frequently used.
