Abstract

The beginnings of the applications of nanotechnology in the field of health sciences took place in early 2000s. There is a wide range of application of nanoparticles and its uses are emerging rapidly. Nanoparticle synthesis is usually carried out by various physical and chemical methods using various hazardous and toxic chemicals which may have adverse effect in the medical applications. Nevertheless, green synthesis approaches of producing silver nanoparticles are an alternative source of conventional method and is cost effective, environment friendly, easily scaled up for large scale synthesis and in this method there is no need to exploit high pressure, energy, temperature and toxic chemicals as in case of chemical and physical method. In this review, we report, some of the major applications of green synthesis of silver nanoparticles.
