The development of different eco-friendly technologies in material synthesis is playing its role to expand their biological applications. Nanoparticles are synthesized chemically, but because of their hazardous effects, the researchers have now turned to biological systems for inspiration. There is a growing concern about the possible results of effects of chemical synthesis of nanoparticles. Therefore, the aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of how nanomaterials can be synthesized using green route to play its role in environmental sustainability as green synthesis processes are considered to be a safe alternative to routine processes due to their cost effectiveness, easy to handle, and environmentally friendly nature. In fact, it opens a new scope for phyto-chemists by discouraging the use of toxic chemicals.
