GREEN NANOPARTICLE SYNTHESIS AND THEIR APPLICATIONSAbstract
As we are well aware that the production of metallic nanoparticles by the physical and chemical method has numerous drawbacks along with the use of toxic chemicals, high energy expenditure and non- biodegradable products. Hence, researchers are showing great interest in the biological synthesis of nanoparticles. The biological method provides clean, bio-degradable, non-toxic and eco-friendly methods for nanoparticles synthesis as compared to a conventional method like physical and chemical. This review concentrates on biological method specially biosynthesis of different types of nanoparticles using bacteria and their application in different fields.
