Main Article Content


The overview of this review article depends on the various techniques of formation of silver nanoparticles and different application take place in medicinal point of view.

The branch of nanotechnology plays an important role in medical science research. In this different nanoparticle is synthesized which have various application in gene delivery, drug delivery and reduce the toxic effect of drugs in the human body and also act as an antibacterial in pharmaceutical industries.

In recent days silver nanoparticles have had an important role due to their optical and catalytic properties. A large number of different particles or methods are used to prepare the different shapes of silver nanoparticles used in drug delivery. Different shapes of nanoparticles have increased their demand in various researches depend on medicinal uses. Silver nanoparticle preparation can be studied by 3 techniques related to irradiations, chemicals, bacteria, fungi, and plants. 

Nanomedicine have a large number of advantages in treating various chronic diseases by using biological agents, chemotherapeutic agents, and used to deliver the drug to a specific site of the body. A silver nanoparticle is prepared for detection tool to detect the adverse effect of diseases on the target cell. Nanoparticles are used in cancer therapy to remove the damaged cell of the body.
