This review article gives an insight into recent developments in chelating agents modified nanostructures in metal extraction and catalysis. The ability of functionalization by anchoring specific functional groups on the surface of nanostructures makes it possible to synthesize different types of desired chelated nanostructures for their use as catalysts and metal ion scavengers. Keeping these aspects in outlook this review emphasizes mainly on the synthesis of chelating agent functionalized
