Comparative Study of AgO Nanoparticles Synthesize Via Biological, Chemical and Physical Methods: A Review

Nanotechnology is the cutting edge and modern emerging technology due to its wide range of applications in many fields of sciences and technologies like ceramics industry, cosmetics, detergents, fertilizers, mobile devices etc. Metallic nanoparticles are considered the building blocks of nanotechnology. Among the metallic nanoparticles, silver nanoparticles are considered to be the more emerging nanoparticles due to its wide range of applications. Nanomaterial’s have unique optical, catalytical, and electromagnetic properties. Nanotechnology provides a platform for the engineers to synthesize nanoparticles and to know the properties of by characterizing the size, morphology status to produce potential multitude products. To get maximum and unique size and morphology of nanoparticles, different procedure i.e. synthetic routes and optimal conditions are being choosing to get maximum nanoparticles e.g. pH, temperature, concentration of supernatant, concentration of extract, method employing for the synthesis of nanoparticles and time of stirring. The aim of this review article is to comparative study of different method of nanoparticles synthesize. The fast and more reliable method is Biosynthesize method due to Eco-friendly, cost efficient.
