    Several plant bioactives or plant-derived therapeutic molecules have been used against life-threatening diseases and their nanoparticle-mediated delivery greatly improves therapeutic efficacy. Advances in Phytonanotechnology for Treatment of Various Diseases aims to describe past and recent advances achieved in the field of phytonanotechnology. The chapters of this book provide thorough knowledge of medicinal plants, plant bioactives, plant extract-based nanoparticle synthesis, delivery of plant bioactives through nanoparticles, and their therapeutic activity against life-threatening diseases. This book focuses on the therapeutic activity of phytocomponents present in plants from diverse families, genera, and species. The book also covers future aspects and challenges present in phytonanotechnology for curing human diseases. This book fulfils the thrust of researchers working in this field, which further encourages them to make new discoveries in this area and support the development of effective nanoparticle-mediated plant bioactive delivery platforms for treating human diseases.
