Nanotechnology is one of the most important building blocks of modern science. In recent years, nanotechnology has emerged as a multidisciplinary technology in the fields of biology, chemistry, bioengineering, food engineering, physics and medicine. Green synthesis is an efficient, inexpensive, easily applicable and environmentally friendly method developed as an alternative to existing physical and chemical syntheses. Today, the green synthesis method is frequently used in the production of biomedical and nanomaterials. Encapsulation is defined as the process of covering solid, liquid and gaseous materials with a protective layer or coating material for various purposes. Chitosan, silicium dioxide, iron, gold, zinc and silver nanoparticles/nanomaterials obtained from leaves, flowers, roots, etc. extracts of plants such as peanut, artichoke, liverwort, white mulberry, green tea, ginger, lemon, olive and lavender, agriculture, paint industry It is frequently used with nano-encapsulation method in food industry, pharmacognosy, medicine and health sector. Phenolic acid, flavonoid tannin, terpene, coumarin, lycopene, vitamin, carotenoid and anthocyanin phytochemicals contained in these plant extracts are also used as reducing agents. The aim of this study is to examine the application areas of nanoparticles and nanomaterials obtained from plant extracts in different sectors by nano-encapsulation method.
