Abstract

This chapter focuses on the novel routes for biosynthesis of inorganic (metal and oxide) nanoparticles by using plant extract as a resource. The mechanism of biosynthesis/green synthesis has been discussed. The nanosynthesis for different nanoparticles has been depending on the various key parameters like kinetics of reaction, pH, temperature, concentration, agitation rate, and other medium. The procedure for plant based nanosynthesis has been delineated. It is found that the cellular level organization along with their metabolic fluxes/signal transduction pathways of living system plays important role in nanosynthesis. In this chapter, plant as a source contains primary and secondary metabolites for nano-transformation.
