  • This lecture describes the application of green nanotechnology in cancer therapy. Phytochemicals from Tea, various fruits and herbs possess powerful antioxidants with redox potentials capable of reducing gold and other metal salts to their corresponding nano particles. Our results have established that the phytochemicals serve dual roles of reduction and subsequent capping around nanoparticles to afford optimum in vivo stability as well as cancer cell receptor targeting properties. The tremendous practicality of creating major oncological advances using green nanotechnological tools and also the power of this approach to connect traditional Herbal Medicine with Nanomedicine will be discussed.
