Nanotechnology is nothing about designing the particles or materials, in nanoscale production. It involves a lot of chemical and physical method to control the size of nanoparticles produced, which creates pressure and toxicity to the environment, but the rise of biological method to synthesis will overcome all the drawbacks that have been reported earlier. Silver nanoparticles were successfully synthesized from silver nitrate through a simple, green and natural route using the different parts of a plant, lichen and mushroom. Silver Nanoparticle synthesis is proved under UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy, synthesized nanoparticles were quite stable and no visible changes were observed even after a month or so. Nanoparticles have wider application in the medical world like gene therapy, Cancer therapy, drug delivery, etc. and medical world also accepts the biological world of non-polluted, Eco-friendly and non-expensive nature of synthesizing nanoparticles.
