The synthesis of silver nanoparticles is of great importance because of the fact that their application is sensitive to the shape, size and its distribution. Bio medical application also demands that nanoparticles should be free from contaminants. Quest for synthetic methods which are benign to both human and environment led researchers to use locally available biogenic products for silver nanoparticle synthesis. Present review article, is based on the available literature on the use of microorganisms and plants for silver nanoparticle synthesis. Also the factors affecting the synthesis, role of phyto chemicals and proposed application of synthesized nanoparticles have been reported.
