Nanoparticle medication delivery methods have received increased research funding in recent years. There are a number of benefits to using nanoparticles as opposed to more traditional drug delivery methods. Because their physical, chemical, and biological properties are so amenable to modification while still providing superior performance over bulk foils, nanoparticles have become increasingly important in technological developments. Because of their diminutive size, nanoparticles are able to freely navigate the body and access a wide variety of target organs. For this reason, nanoparticles are the optimal medication delivery technology due to their great stability and regulated drug release. In addition to these benefits, they also provide several administration options. Delivery of medications in the form of nanoparticles is possible for both hydrophilic and hydrophobic pharmaceuticals. Different types of drug molecules' pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties have been physically altered and improved through the use of nanoparticles. In comparison to other research methods, formulating metal oxides using the sol-gel method is a stress-free and very inexpensive process that allows for control over the doping process or adding of transition metals. To obtain nanoparticles with desired sizes and shapes, it is necessary to investigate various methods of synthesis. They can be used for imaging, catalysis, medical applications, and environmental uses, all of which have commercial and local potential. Nanoparticle synthesis techniques, including physical, chemical, and biological processes, are the primary emphasis of this review.
