Abstract :
Nanotechnology is the most promising area of research for its wide range of applications. It deals with the creation and control of particles having size 1-100 nm at least one of their dimensions. Metal nano particles are important component of nanoscience. Various methods have been developed and modified for the synthesis of metal nanoparticles. Among the several methods biogenic reduction of metal salts to corresponding metal nano particle is a green method due to low cost, absence of hazardous chemicals, without drastic condition, very mild and eco-friendly reaction condition. In this review, bio based synthesis and applications of silver, gold and palladium nanoparticles have been discussed.
