Abstract

Nanotechnology has surged in popularity all over the years. Nanoparticles are the essential component of nanotechnology. Nanoparticles are tiny particles that range in size from 1 to 100 nanometres and are made of carbon, metal, metal oxides, or organic substances. At the moment, nanoscale metals are mostly synthesised chemically, which has unexpected consequences such as excessive radiation and the use of extremely concentrated reductants and stabilising agents that are hazardous to the environment and human health. In response to these obstacles, a comparatively new and largely unresolved area of study concentrating on synthesising nanomaterial by biological method has arisen. Nanoparticles synthesised utilising biological processes, often known as 'Green synthesis,' have a variety of properties, including higher stability and suitable diameters. Green synthesis employs ecologically beneficial, non-toxic, and risk-free chemicals. Hence, due to existing environmental problems and toxic wastes associated with chemical synthesis, green synthesis presents alternative advancement prospects.
