The article discusses the concept in functional material and nanotechnology in India. It is stated that functional materials are the most significant class of fundamental materials in the advancement of material science and technology. They are regarded as the backbone of material science and information system. The functional materials of soft metal chemistry, transition (d-block) elements, and lanthanides, which can form, mixed valenced compounds, are responsible for imparting functional qualities.
