Abstract:

Nanotechnology is an important field of modern research dealing with design, synthesis, and manipulation of particles structure ranging from approximately 1-100 nm in one dimension. It includes the synthesis of nanoscale materials and exploration or utilization of their exotic physicochemical, Biological and optoelectronic properties. Silver has long been known to have strong inhibitory and bactericidal effects as well as broad spectrum of antimicrobial activities even at low concentrations. Silver has recognized importance in chemistry, physics and biology due to its unique properties. Conventional methods to synthesize silver nanoparticles are mainly by different chemical, physical and biological approaches. Biological synthesis provides advancement over chemical and physical method as it is cost effective, environment friendly, easily scaled up for large scale synthesis and in this method there is no need to use high pressure, energy, temperature and toxic chemicals. The biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles act as a antimicrobial agent and also used in pharmaceuticals, medicine and dental divisions.
