Nanoparticles can offer important advantages over the administration of conventional drugs in terms of high stability, high specificity, high drug transport capacity, controlled release capacity, possibility of use in different routes of administration and the ability to administer drugs both hydrophilic and hydrophobic molecules. Nanoparticles are being used for various purposes, from medical treatments, use in various branches of the production industry such as solar and for energy storage, to a wide incorporation obsessed with various everyday materials such as cosmetics or dress, optical devices, catalytic, bactericidal, electronics, sensor technology, biological labelling and treatment of some cancers. Nanoparticles can be chemically or biologically synthesized. This review focuses on the need to develop nanoparticles, advantages, disadvantages, synthesis, properties, applications of nanoparticles exist in different forms. Nanoparticles are very capable in selective tumour contact cancer therapy due to their small size and modifiability. These particles consist of pure active pharmaceutical ingredients and are stabilized regularly with surfactant. Nanoparticles are tiny materials that have particle sizes in the range of 1 to 1000 nm.
