Abstract

This review focuses on recent breakthroughs in the physicochemical approaches and biological approaches of metallic iron, iron sulfides, and iron oxide nanoparticles for a variety of applications. The range of kinds, topologies, and physicochemical features of nano-sized iron sulfides has piqued researchers' curiosity. Furthermore, this study examines the medicinal, environmental, and technical uses of biogenically synthesized NPs, as well as the hurdles that must be overcome in order to optimize the environmentally friendly production of these critical nanoparticles. FeS NPs have a good effect on biological activity due to their ease of production, magnetic properties, biocompatibility, and biodegradability. Also canvased are the FeS NPs nanoparticle-specific biomedical applications in cancer treatments. The goal of this review is to discuss the synthesis, characteristics, and uses of nano sized FeS NPs in biomedical domains, revealing that they have significant promise for enhancing human health and excellence of life.
