The recent development and implementation of new te chnologies have led to new era, the nano-revolution which unfolds role of plants in bio and green synthesis of nanoparticl es which seem to have drawn quite an unequivocal at tention with a view of synthesizing stable nanoparticles. Although nanopar ticles can be synthesized through array of conventi onal methods biological route of synthesizing are good competent over the physical and chemical techniques. Green p rinciple route of synthesizing have emerged as alternative to overcom e the limitation of conventional methods among whic h plant and microorganisms are majorly exploited. Employing pla nts towards synthesis of nanoparticles are emerging as advantageous compared to microbes with the presence of broad var iability of bio-molecules in plants can act as capp ing and reducing agents and thus increases the rate of reduction and stabilization of nanoparticles. Biological synthes ized nanoparticles have upsurge applications in various sectors. Hence the present study envisions on biosynthesis of nanopart icles from plants which are emerging as nanofactories.
