Wood properties can be changed using nanomaterials that can penetrate
deeply into the wood substrate. This capacity of nano-based materials can be utilized in
changing wood properties in a way that is very effective in their long-term use.
Nanotechnology can certainly change the future of the wood industry by increasing the
functional life of wood products as well as usability under various conditions. But its
full potential to make wood resistant against fungi has still not been explored. Research
is underway but there is still a long way to go. Studies carried out on the use of
nanoparticles have clearly shown the negative impact of nanoparticles on human health
as well as on the environment. This issue needs to be addressed.
