The short is the 1st to concentration completely on environmentally pleasant supply of insecticides (controlled-release nanoparticulate formula of insecticides utilizing biodegradable polymers as carriers). The short additionally introduces insecticides like Chlorpyrifos and biodegradable polymers like guar-gum. The short could be super necessary to the researchers within the box of agrochemicals and should be both valuable for complicated execs within the box of biology, chemistry, environmental biology, entomology and horticulture.

Castaneum was about 80 %, presumably due to the slow and persistent release of the active components from the nanoparticles. Goswami et al. (2010) have studied the applications of different kinds of nanoparticles, viz. silver (SNP), aluminum oxide (ANP), zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide nanoparticles in the control of rice weevil and grasserie disease in silkworm (Bombyx mori) caused by Sitophilus oryzae and baculovirus BmNPV (B. mori nuclear polyhedrosis virus), respectively. In their study, they performed bioassay, in which they prepared solid and liquid formulations of the abovementioned nanoparticles; later, they applied these formulations on rice, kept them in a plastic box with 20 adults of S.

2006). Nanosilica, a type of unique nanomaterial, is prepared from silica. It has many applications in medicine and drug development. Recently, it has been found to be useful as a catalyst and most importantly has been found to be useful as nanopesticide. Barik et al. (2008) have reviewed the use of nanosilica as nanopesticide. A. 1007/978-81-322-1689-6_8, Ó The Author(s) 2014 29 30 8 Management of Insect Pests Using Nanotechnology: As Modern Approaches The mechanism of control of insect pest using nanosilica is based on the fact that insect pests use a variety of cuticular lipids for protecting their water barrier and thereby prevent death from desiccation.

3 Liposomes Liposomes are vesicles formed by the auto-association of one or several phospholipid bilayers that can enclose an aqueous compartment. They have attracted the attention of a number of research groups in various fields, such as physical chemistry, biophysics, and pharmaceutics because of their structure (which is comparable to the phospholipid membranes of living cells) (Samad et al. 2007). The innocuous nature of phospholipidic components in liposomes makes them suitable reservoir systems that have rapidly become ideal candidates for molecular vectorization in biological media.
