Green Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles: An Eco-Friendly Approach

Sopan Namdev Nangare, Pravin Onkar Patil


Eco-friendly synthesis of nanoparticles is an upcoming discipline of nanoscience. Green synthesis of Ag NPs has gained immense importance and much awareness in developed nations. Fascinatingly, such an environmental friendly synthesis of Ag NPs gives a green chemistry-based non-toxic and economical route to nanotechnology. This review article gives insight about the bioinspired synthesis of Ag NPs and mechanisms involved in the synthesis of Ag NPs. In this review, we have summarized the scientific reports in the eco-friendly synthesis arena of Ag NPs and their applications in the biomedical field. Especially, we have focused on plant materials, fungi, algae, and bacterial potential towards the eco-friendly synthesis of Ag NPs. For future perception, now there is a need for in silico and in vitro, in vivo research to authenticate the outcomes.
