This review intends to show how nanotechnology is currently being applied in concrete. Both organic and inorganic species can be used as nanoagents, producing materials with improved properties, promoting economic and environmental gains by extending the materials' lifetime. Thus, this paper covers nanotechnology applications to improve mechanical, thermal, and corrosive properties of concrete and shows bibliometric results, proving the increase of interest in these fields. Results have shown that organic agents are more commonly used than inorganic ones, and that nanotechnology is applied mainly to improve mechanical and thermal properties.
