Abstract

Atmospheric contamination by heavy metals/metalloids is a widespread global issue. Industrial discharges, along with agricultural and anthropogenic activities cause massive accumulation of arsenic (As) in soil and groundwater, which collectively results in increased toxicity of this metalloid in crop plants. Arsenic causes phytotoxicity by interfering with plant metabolic processes at physiological, biochemical and molecular levels, leading to reduced growth and productivity. In recent times, nanotechnology is adopted in sustainable agriculture to regulate As-stress management in different plants by the administration of nanoparticles. This review highlights the latest trends in research in the applications of different nanoparticles to restrict As-bioaccumulation, and ameliorate As-stress induced phytotoxicity in plant species. The performance of nanoparticles, constituted of metal or metal oxides, viz., zinc oxide (ZnO), silicon dioxide (SiO2), titanium dioxide (TiO2), iron oxide [magnetite (Fe3O4) and maghemite (Fe2O3)], copper oxide (CuO), manganese dioxide (MnO2) and cerium oxide (CeO2) during As-stress are mostly discussed in this review. In spite of numerous beneficial effects, a serious concern, from the ecological point of view, about nanoparticle interaction with flora and fauna, is raised. Therefore, it is vital to optimize the size and proper concentration of such nanoparticles before co-applying them during As-stress so as to derive the maximum benefit out of this technology.
