Recently, focus is directed on research which involves synthesis of nano particles using natural polymericmaterials that are eco friendly, inexpensive as well as biodegradable. In this study, bimetallic silver – gold nanoparticles (Ag-AuNPs) were synthesized using gelatin extracted from chrome containing leather waste as a template.The nanoparticles were confirmed with UV -Vis and particle size analysis. The gelatin directed bimetallic nanoparticles were air dried to obtain as nanobiocomposites (NBCs). These NBCs were characterized via FTIR, DSC, TGA,XRD and SEM/EDX. Also, mechanical properties such as tensile strength and Young’s modulus along with water absorption studies of the NBCs were conducted.The results indicate that the gelatin NBCs incorporated with bimetallicnanoparticles are biodegradable and possess the desired mechanical properties needed for biomedical applications.
