Abstract: Nanosizing techniques, such as High Speed Stirring and High Pressure Homogenization enhance the bioavailability of otherwise insoluble compounds. These techniques can alternatively allow access to the active ingredients restrained within the plant cells and help make them more bioavailable for practical applications. This thesis explored the effectiveness of utilizing these Nano-technological techniques in converting raw plant material into nanomaterial. Subsequently, the nanosized plant particles were investigated for their impact on microorganisms. These insights gained from the initial experiments on tropical plants, helped expanding the scope to waste materials and finding solutions for waste management. Finally, the biological activities of nanosized particles were examined in combination with the Nanosizing, Lyophilization and Resuspension (NaLyRe) sequence to attain transport-friendly formulations suitable for application in cosmetics, agricultural and medicinal arena.
