Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) received special importance at least the last two decades, mainly due to their magnetic properties. Biological sources which include microorganism, algae fungi, and plants have been employed for the production of low-price, strength-green, and risk-free environmental metallic nanoparticles. Microbial synthesis is an emerging and frontier technique for biological synthesizing MNPs. Low price, sustainability, non-toxicity, and simplicity are commonplace blessings shared with the aid of green synthesis procedures in the manufacturing’s direction of MNPs. This chapter presents an excellent status view of some investigations of microbially synthesized magnetic nanomaterials. Further, this report explains about the biogenic synthesis of supramagnetite nanoparticles (Fe3O4-NPs).
