Abstract :
The fruit extract of Ficus carica Linn (Dumur) is rich in different types of plant secondary metabolites such as terpenoids, polyphenols including flavanoids, etc. We have demonstrated the use of the fruit extract for the synthesis of gold nanoparticles in water at room temperature under very mild conditions.
