Title: Nanomaterials enhanced plastic degradation by soil associated microbiome- A sustainable nanobiotechnology approach
Nanotechnology is an intensifying research field makes the Researcher thirst over the various end applications of nanoparticles based on high surface to volume ratio and its quick interaction capacity with different particles as an attractive tool in different areas. Various conventional physical and chemical methods where adopted to obtain a nanomaterials. Plastics are the polymers which derived from petrochemical process as by-product with high molecular weight due to the repeated units of hydrocarbon monomers. Excessive use of plastics poses a serious threat to flora and fauna on the earth. In recent research, involves nanomaterial specific to biodegradation has gained desirability owing to its physicochemical properties. Biodegradation is the main concept used in the zero waste management. The role of nanoparticles helps in controlling the biodegradation rate. The biodegradation might not be quite effective in certain cases like high chemical deposition, due to its toxic nature towards microorganisms. The conventional strategies demonstrated a limited use of nature source, and this could be overcome through microbes and enzyme-based biodegradation. Nanoparticles have improved the biodegradation rate, thereby corrupting microbes involved in plastic degradation
