Plants: Emerging as Nanofactories towards Facile Route in Synthesis of Nanoparticles

Bioimpacts. 2013;3(3):111-7. doi: 10.5681/bi.2013.012. Epub 2013 Apr 23.


Plant mediated nanoparticles' synthesis has led to a remarkable progress via unfolding a green synthesis protocol towards nanoparticles' synthesis. It seems to have drawn quite an unequivocal attention with a view of reformulating the novel strategies as alternatives for popular conventional methods. Hence, the present review summarizes the literature reported thus far and envisions towards plants as emerging sources of nanofactories.

Keywords: Biosynthesis; Nanoparticles; Plants.
