The research in nanotechnology, viz. the development of nanomaterials and nanocomposites has widened their applications in various sectors. The heritage conservation has also tapped its potential as it provides a range of possibilities for the development of materials at the nanoscale and methods for conservation and restoration of cultural artefacts. Nanocomposites have drawn significant interest amongst conservators as these materials are more efficient to their respective bulk materials. In recent times, nanocomposites have captivated attention for their usage in cleaning, consolidation, as an adhesive and as a protective coating. Moreover, the safety of a conservator along with the safety of the target artwork has been addressed by employing the nanocomposites in the conservation process due to its low toxicity and usage in low amount. In this paper, we discuss essential aspects of the nanocomposites and their several applications in the conservation of various heritage materials, viz., conservation of stone, metals, wood, bone, paintings, archival materials, etc.
