A great deal of interest has been drawn to organic and inorganic nanohybrids because of their advantageous properties and potential uses in the healthcare industry, among others. A significant amount of time and effort was expended on the design and fabrication of adaptable nanohybrids. This research discusses organic and inorganic nanohybrids formed from nanoparticles and polymeric substances as the subject of this research, which discusses their design, characteristics, and biomedical applications. Following that, we will talk about how nanohybrids work and what they are capable of, including things like self-assembling nanohybrids and those made from organic and inorganic components. On the following page, you will find examples of nanohybrids in use for ultrasound as well as medicine and imaging-guided therapy. The promise of sustainably grown nanohybrids, with their limitations and recommended research opportunities, are discussed in the last section.
