In the present years, nanotechnology is emerging as a favourite field for research. The nanoparticles have drawn the interest of the researchers from varied fields. These particles find different applications in diverse fields. The different types of nanoparticles play an important role in the medical field. Nanoparticles of various size have shown different activities in medical fields. Various physical, chemical and biological methods are in use to synthesize nano materials of which one of the most economic and ecofriendly way is to synthesize them by deploying plant derivatives. The present review discusses applications, stability order of silver nanoparticles from different plants belonging to different families. The biosynthesis of novel metal nanoparticles have gained significance, especially when the nanoparticles are synthesized extracellular and in a controlled manner according to their disparity of shape and size. The aim of this review is to discuss the phytosynthesis of silver nanoparticles from different plants belonging to diverse families.
Keywords: Silver, Nanoparticles, Phytosynthesis.
