The rising demand for nanotechnology in several industries could lead to the dispersion of nanoparticles in the environment in the upcoming years. Due to the increasing load of nanoparticles in the environment, people are increasingly concerned about the connection with nanoparticles and animals and plants. The effect of nanoparticles on plant growth has been demonstrated by some scientists and their deposition in food over the last few years. The current chapter discusses the research done over the last decade to show how metal and metal oxide nanoparticles affect plant metabolism. The effects of nanoparticles on plants, as well as their size, concentration, and application methods, were investigated in this chapter based on previous research, we proposed an oxidation burst as a general mechanism for nanoparticle toxicity to spread in plants new studies in this chapter summarizes current knowledge and potential opportunities in plant nanoparticle study.
