Silver Nanoparticles have gained an increasing attention especially in the field of bio medicinal applications, sensor and catalysis. Many techniques are available for synthesis of silver Nanoparticles like chemical reduction, ion sputtering etc., but many of the Nanoparticles synthesis methods involve use of hazardous chemicals or high energy requirements. Hence the popularity of ‘Green’ environment friendly synthesis of silver Nanoparticles is increasing. Greener synthesis of Nanoparticles also provides advancement over other methods as they are simple, one-step, cost-effective, environment friendly and relatively reproducible and often results in more stable materials. Thus, in the present review we critically assess the role of plants in synthesis of silver Nanoparticles.

Keywords:Silver nanoparticles; Green synthesis; Cost-effective
