Bio-nanotechnology has emerged as integration among biotechnology and nanotechnology for growing biosynthetic and environment-friendly technology for synthesis of nanomaterials. Different sorts  of nanomaterials like copper, zinc, titanium, magnesium, gold, alginate and silver were diagnosed however  silver nanoparticles have proved to be only because  it has good antimicrobial efficacy against bacteria, viruses and different micro-organisms. Conventionally silver nanoparticles had been synthesized by the aid of using chemicals as reducing agents which later on become accountable for various biological risks due to their general toxicity; engendering the serious concern to develop eco-friendly processes. Thus, to remedy the objective; biological approaches are coming up to fill the void; for instance green synthesis using biological molecules derived from plant sources in the form of extracts exhibiting superiority over chemical and/or biological methods. These plant based biological molecules undergo highly controlled assembly for making them suitable for the metal nanoparticle synthesis. Silver nanoparticles possess unique properties which find vast of applications.

This paper aims to synthesis of silver nanoparticles from Coriender Peel and their applications in Pharmaceuticals.
