The process of functionalization of nanomaterials with functional groups,
molecules, or biomolecules significantly influences the performance of nanomaterials
and nanoparticles and enables them to act efficiently in the design and fabrication of
nanocatalysts and electrochemical sensors which can be applied in different fields for
the detection of analytes such as biomarkers, contaminants, preservatives etc.
Nanocatalysis is indispensable in the real sense for its benefits that come from both the
homogenous and heterogeneous catalysts, such as greater efficiency, stability, an
recyclability. Due to the unique properties of nanomaterial-based catalysts,
nanocatalysts exhibit extraordinary potential applications in various sectors, like
cosmetics, energy, power, petroleum, drug delivery, fuels, biomedicine, and herbal
drug synthesis. This book chapter discusses the need for nanocatalysis and its scope,
focusing on synthesis and sensing properties of varieties of nano-catalytic materials for
multifunctional applications.
