Introduction: Silver nanoparticles are being explored for their attractive properties
which enable them to be used for the development of different hybrid products. Metal nanoparticles
are being synthesized through biogenic routes to synthesize nanoparticles which can be
more biocompatible and synthesis process is ecofriendly. In previous studies, we have synthesized
silver nanoparticles using plant based extract as reducing agent and have developed a
number of products utilizing such biosynthesized nanoparticles. Leaf extracts were extracted
from weed plants instead of cash crops or beneficial plants.
Conclusion: Some of the prominent products which are going to be discussed in this review are
antimicrobial membranes (Cellulose acetate and Poly Vinyl Alcohol), hybrid tissue paper, antimicrobial
ice, Photo – Enhanced Dye Sensitized Solar Cell (PE-DSSC), bactericidal cold
Keywords: Biosynthesis, metal nanoparticles, hybrid materials, antimicrobial CA and PVA membrane,
antimicrobial nano ice, bactericidal cold cream.
