The purpose of nanotechnology is to contrive moreover synthesize substances by name nanoparticles (NP) for industrial goals. Nanoparticles with a scale smaller than 100 nm gain recent unusual properties such as area, conductivity, strength, durability furthermore reactivity, which are small in size moreover large in superficies. Thanks to these qualities, nanoparticles; It is frequently applied in different media such as medicine, pharmacy, cosmetics, electronics, textile, industry, as well as food protection. But, it is obvious that such qualities also affect the biological in addition toxicological features of nanoparticles. NPs can with ease pass through important biological barriers moreover membranes in addition interact with organs, cellular organelles furthermore genetic material. Nanoparticles may be the cause of oxidative stress, inflammation, cytotoxicity, genotoxicity moreover apoptosis. Furthermore, feasible genotoxic effects of nanoparticles, chromosome abnormalities (KA), Sister Chromatid Exchange (SCD), Micronucleus (MN), comet/Comet in addition allium parameters are used and observed. The aim of quod research is; To investigate the relationship of gold nanoparticles cum anticancer. Additionally, it is to discredit the alleged ideas about the genotoxic mechanisms of nanoparticles.
