In this paper, the essence of nanotechnology is presented. Nanotechnology is  emerged as a fabrication method, computational tools, and revolutionized electronics and medicine. The bio-chemo-physical properties are understood in different dimension  with emphasis on various synthesis techniques and size dependent physio-chemical properties. Most properties resulting from size reduction from macro scale to nanoscale and molecular interactions with nanoparticles significantly contributes to its multi function. A systematic illustration of nanotechnology at nanoparticles level indicate a plenty of nanotechnology applications. More specifically, the role of nanostructures such as nanoparticles, quantum dots, and DNA nanostructures as a carrier of fluorescence and molecular medicine is digested. Here in, the essence of nanotechnology is visualized by accounting the potential of nanoparticles in molecular electronics and molecular medicine. The consensus of nanotechnology and its significant role in molecular electronics, molecular medicine, and nano medicine is presented. In the perspective or molecular electronics, the significant role of nanotechnology is demstfied for Bioelectronics and biochip processing. However, molecular imaging, identification of molecular mismatch, genetic errors, immunotherapy, and diagnosis are seen as a significant attribute of nanotechnology in molecular medicine. The current challenges and life fate resulting from nano products such as nano waste, nano toxicity, and dust nanoparticles are also visualized.

Key words: molecular medicine, nano medicine, nanotechnology, nanoparticles, nanocomposite.
