The increasingly wide application of artificial nanomaterials is bound to lead to a large number of nanomaterials in the ecological environment, so the possible environmental pollution and ecological effects of nanomaterials have also attracted great attention. Plants are an important part of the ecosystem. On the one hand, nanomaterials may affect the development and growth of plants. On the other hand, the metabolic activities of plants can affect the migration and transformation behavior of nanomaterials in the environment and their transmission in the food web. This chapter reviews recent studies on the interaction between nanomaterials and plants, and discusses the toxic effects of different nanomaterials on plants from the plant to the plant cell level, as well as the process of plant uptake and transport of nanomaterials.

Keywords: Absorption, Nanomaterials, Plants, Plant toxicity, Transmission.
