    Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing science of producing and utilizing the nano-sized particles. It was necessary to develop another non-toxic and environmentally friendly procedure for production of nanoparticles by mean of green technology to avoid production of the hazardous chemicals (sodium borohydride, sodium citrate, ascorbate, elemental hydrogen, Tollen’s reagent, N,N-dimethyl formamide and poly (ethylene glycol) block copolymers) produced during the chemical preparation. The metal nanoparticles (MNPs) (silver, gold, platinum, copper and zinc oxide) were biosynthesized through the reaction with plant extract by bio-reduction mechanism. Among all noble MNPs, the silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are non-toxic and gained boundless interests due to their characteristic properties in addition to their significant antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects.
