The scientific community is search in for new methods for the synthesis of metallic nanoparticles. Green synthesis has now become a vast developing area of new research groups. Here we report a green method to the synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using the different parts of Vishanika or Indian screw tree, an ayurvedic medicinal tree. This is nontoxic, eco-friendly and low cost method. The reduction and stabilization capability of the plant extracts of different parts are described. The size and structure of the silver can be characterized by varying the plant parts of the vishanika. The biosynthesized nanoparticles are characterized by using UV–VIS spectroscopy, TEM, XRD, DLS and FTIR. The size and extract dependent catalytic activity of the biosynthesized nanoparticles is established in the degradation of organic dyes.
