Phytosynthesized nanoparticles as an alluring step for antimicrobial drug delivery: A brief Introduction


Author(s): Wali Muhammad, Safia Hameed, Warda Komal

Abstract: Since its advent, nanotechnology has become an indispensable area of research and innovation, introducing revolutionary changes in current research areas like engineering, medical sciences, drug discovery and formulations, optoelectronics and biosensors. Various antimicrobial agents have been used to kill or inhibit the growth of microbes such as bacteria, fungi and viruses. But recently, biosynthesized nanoparticles attained great attention of researcher to use these nanoparticles as a system for delivery of antimicrobial drug. Phytosynthesized nanoparticles are widely used due to many advantages like small and controllable size, large surface area to mass ratio, and functionalizable structure. These properties make the nanoparticles, a suitable delivery system of antimicrobials. This briefly introduction explores the huge plant diversity to be utilized towards rapid and single step protocol preparatory method with green principles over the conventional ones and describes the antimicrobial of Photosynthesized nanoparticles.
