The classes of products applicable for biodefense may also be useful against molecular-based threats such as chemical agents as well as biological threats. This chapter reviews examples of nanotechnology that may lead to components and systems with practical applications for defense of human health, security against biological warfare or terrorism, agriculture, and the environment. The authors highlight and review examples of laboratory research.
