Abstract

The field of nanotechnology has shown great interest in nanoparticle synthesis, but traditional methods have raised concerns regarding health and environmental implications. In response, green nanoparticle synthesis has emerged as a promising alternative, utilizing biological agents such as plant extracts, bacteria, fungi, and algae as reducing and stabilizing agents. This review article explores recent advancements in green synthesis, focusing on the synthesis, characterization, and applications of nanoparticles. The process involves selecting a biological agent, preparing an extract, reducing metal ions, and characterising the resulting nanoparticles. Green-synthesized nanoparticles have demonstrated potential in agriculture, energy, and medicine, although their unique properties may pose challenges in these fields. Notably, they have shown promise in treating cancer, bacterial infections, and other diseases, as well as contributing to energy applications and agriculture. The use of organic agents in nanoparticle synthesis presents a smart, eco-friendly, and promising approach for diverse applications.
