It has been well documented that microbes are able to create self-defense against conventional antibiotics. Such drug-resistant property of the microbes always inspired the researchers to develop an alternative strategy to control the growth of pathogenic microbes. Nanoparticles have received major importance because of their distinctive property over corresponding bulk material. For such unique property, from the recent past, research has been focused on the nanotechnology to uplift the biomedical sciences but hazardous byproducts of nanoparticle synthesis makes always retardation. In this review, we emphasized and elaborated the biosynthesis process of metal nanoparticles and how such particles can be considered for anti-microbial context.

Keywords: Antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial, biosynthesis, nanoparticle, microorganism.
