During recent years, the development of suitable green chemistry methods for the synthesis of metallic nanoparticles has become the main focus of researchers. The investigations are under process for the creation of standardized nanoparticles (NPs). One of the most frequent ways for NPs synthesis is using plants that are ideally suited for nanoparticle production. The nanoparticles created from various organisms vary in physical appearance, and the plant-based NPs enable the researchers to explore the plant mechanisms for the uptake and creation of metallic NPs. Nanotechnology is emerging as a crucial discipline of science and technology that examines the cell-level interaction between synthetic and biological materials. The use of this technology is rising worldwide due of its advantages and simplicity. Organisms from primitive prokaryotes to complex eukaryotes and angiosperm plants are used for the production of NPs. Further investigation and study are required in this field to enhance the biological synthesis of nanoparticles. This book chapter discussed the plants employed in NPs synthesis. It also represents the many biological systems that create the art of fabrication of NPs and the development of this advanced technology.

Keywords: Applications, Biological based nanoparticles, Characterization, Metallic Nanoparticles, Nanotechnology, Physiochemical Properties, Toxicity.
