Nanotechnology have remarkable significance in different fields, like pharmaceutical, biomedical, drug delivery, agricultural and energy applications, etc., which deals with the synthesis of different metal/metal oxide nanoparticles. Nanoparticles are solid colloidal in nature with the size ranging from 10 to 1000 nm. Nanoparticles have some excellent characteristics like non-toxicity, biocompatibility, chemical stability, high saturation magnetization and maximum magnetic susceptibility. They are being prepared by silver, gold, nickel, zinc, copper, titanium, magnesium, and alginate etc., by using various bio resources like plant and microorganisms. Nowadays, the biological approaches of green or plant mediated synthesis of nanoparticles expressed safe, cheapest, eco-friendly, more reliable and clean method to propose different biological properties. This review investigates the phytosynthetic mechanisms of nanoparticles and its bio-therapeutic applications such as antimicrobial, antioxidants, anticancer, hyperthermia, bio imaging and biosensors sensing of target molecules and drug delivery etc.

Keywords: Green Synthesis, Nanoparticles, Antioxidant activity, Anticancer activity, Antibiofilm activity
