The challenges in developing low-cost, highly sensitive, sensing strategies for environmental pollutants have always been a rapidly growing field of research attracting scientific attention. With revolutionary advances in nanotechnology leaving their mark upon the field of environmental monitoring, in adjunction with studies in nanosensors and microfluidics has contributed well to heavy metal sensing. However, it is imperative to use nanotechnology as a tool to facilitate rapid and effective detection of heavy metals, thus breaking barriers in environmental analysis, while also commercially making heavy metal sensors revolutionize the approach towards developing eco-friendly portable sensors. Herein, we attempt to study the more recent developments and potential applications of nanotechnology pertaining to the field of heavy metal detection.
