Abstract

Currently nanoparticle synthesis has been a major area of research since nanoparticles are high in demand and used in many applications like targeted drug delivery, treatment of diseases, nanodevices, food industries, electronic devices and in many other fields. The size of the nanoparticles and their unique physical and chemical properties are an added advantage for their use in various fields. Due to the increased demand synthesis of nanoparticles from different sources and different methods are being explored. Among them biological method of nanoparticle synthesis is highly cost efficient and easier compared to physical and chemical methods of nanoparticle synthesis. In biological methods use of microorganisms are the widely used source that is highly efficient for the synthesis of nanoparticles. This review deals with the production of nanoparticles from microorganisms and their applications in various fields.
