Biopolymers are polymeric biomolecules that contain monomeric units which are covalently bonded to form a larger molecule. Biopolymers in nature are produced by various microorganisms and plants which require specific nutrients with a controlled environmental conditions. Biopolymers along with nanotechnology have found many applications in various fields which includes water treatment, energy sector, food industry, biomedical, photonic applications etc. Applications of biopolymers in various fields, especially in the field of green nanotechnology, biomedical and pharmaceutical industry etc., and it various characterization techniques were discussed in this review article.

Keywords:Biopolymers; Green nanotechnology; Pharmaceutical industry; Biocompatibility; Nanofillers
