Nanotechnology is the most fascinating area of research in the field of material science, medical science, life science, physical & chemical sciences. Today, non-metal particles, especially silver, have drawn the attention of scientists because of their extensive application in the development of new technologies in different areas at the nanoscale. Nanoparticles are viewed by many as fundamental building blocks of nanotechnology. They are the starting point for many ‘bottom-up’ approaches for preparing nanostructured materials and devices. As such, their synthesis is an important component of rapidly growing research efforts in nanoscale science and engineering. Nanoparticles of a wide range of materials can be prepared by a variety of methods. Traditionally, NPs have been produced by techniques such as arc discharge, vapour deposition, electrochemical deposition, or ball milling (Yu et al., 1996; Stoll et al.,…show more content…
Among pulses, gram or chana is one of the important pulse crop grown in India. Gram also known as chickpea, (Cicer arietinum L.) accounting for about 32% of the area and 44% of the production of pulses in the country. Gram is grown in rabi season in about 7.3 million ha with on annual production of about 6.2 million tonnes. India has more than 80% of the worlds chickpea area and 69% of the world crop is harvested from India and Pakistan. Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Punjab, Haryana and Tamil Nadu are the major chickpea growing states in the country. Chickpea by virtue of its multiple uses, is raised for more than one purpose. Being a legume crop, it fixes atmospheric nitrogen and enriches soil fertility. Tender shoot and green pods are used as vegeTables. Whole grams whether boiled, roasted or cooked are consumed by people, grains are used for making dal, flour etc. Germinated seeds are recommended to cure Scurvy, Oxalic acids intestinal
