Commercial Production and Use of Carbon Nanotubes-added Biofertilizer

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are a significant class of nanomaterials with special properties that have a wide range of uses in industries like electronics, material science, and medicine. However, the insolubility of CNTs in aqueous conditions and safety worries prevent their usage in agriculture.

Their agricultural utility may be increased by the capacity to separate and dissolve isolated CNTs. Crop yields in dry environments can be increased by using commercially available water soluble CNTs-added biofertilizer. It includes nanoparticles with distinctive physicochemical characteristics, including large surface areas, high reactivity, suitable pore sizes, and particle morphologies, which can assist in supplying nutrients to plants to enhance growth and yields. The commercial production and applications of biofertilizer with carbon nanotubes are highlighted in this chapter.
