Nanotechnology has been applied to various fields of science including electronics, engineering, physical sciences, materials sciences, biomedical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, medical science and dentistry. Nanotechnology is becoming popular in forensics because nanoparticles can transform the bulky instruments into small chip-based system, and shorten analysis methods to make investigations, sensitive, timely, and applicable. Due to this reason nanotechnology is effectively used in the field of forensic medicine in detection and quantification of different toxic substances from various evidences like, blood, saliva, hair, teeth, vitreous humor and even from skeletal remains and fingerprint samples. So this review paper was prepared to highlight the main applications of nanotechnology in the field of forensic science.

Keywords: Nanoforensics, Nanotechnology, Forensics, Fingerprints.
