Nanotechnology is a fast emerging field in physics, chemistry as well as in biology. In view of the tremendous applications of nanotechnology, scientists are in flick to carry out research in this vital discipline. Chemists are highly interested in synthesizing nanoparticles of different dimensions employing many of the precious metals. Now a days scientist have started the exploitation of bio-based synthesis of nano-particles using leaf extracts and microorganisms. The development of eco-friendly procedures for the metal nanoparticles synthesis through biological process is evolving into an important branch of nanobiotechnology. Generally, nanoparticles are synthesized by chemical and physical methods, which are not eco-friendly so it is necessity to synthesized nanoparticles using plant extracts or from the plant source. Nanotechnology is gaining tremendous impetus in the present century due to its capability of modulating metals into their nanosize, which drastically changes the chemical, physical and optical properties of metals. Metallic silver in the form of silver nanoparticles has made a remarkable comeback as a potential antimicrobial agent.
