Any substance capable of improving the efficiency, absorption and distribution of nutrients when applied in plants is considered as biostimulant, where we can include nanoprticles and nanomaterials, which, as referenced in the article Nanoparticles and nanomaterials as biostimulants of plants of the author A Juárez Maldorado, having high density of surface charges can interact in a specific way as well as non-specific with the cell surfaces, being the case of Nanoparticles and pristine nanomaterials, functionalized and with crown, crown formed by the interaction with the soil, water and the same plant itself. The magnitude and extent of the interaction will depend on the size, characteristics and substances attached to the crown, which together with the impact on the electrical potentials of the external and internal surfaces of the membrane caused by eletrostatic disturbance, modify the action of Integral membrane proteins.
