Abstract

In recent years, fabrication of AgNPs via plant extracts has gained much attention because of being environmentally friendly, non-hazardous and cost effective. The bio-fabrication of AgNPs using plant extracts as reducing, capping and stabilizing agents includes simpler, safer, less-toxic and energy efficient. AgNPs have been widely applied in numerous fields due to their bio-compatibility, multifunctionality, solubility, high stability, therapeutic and adhesive properties. This review focuses on the advantages of AgNPs synthesis using plant extracts and its applications in various fields for the betterment of mankind and environment with numerous examples and also highlights on explaining possible fundamental mechanisms involved in antimicrobial and anticancer activities of plant extract synthesized AgNPs.
