The interest in synthesizing Nanoparticles in an easy and environmental friendly way has been increasing in the recent years. Physical and Chemical methods are conventionally used for synthesis of Nanoparticles, however due to limitations of these methods, the focus of research has been recently shifted towards the development of clean and eco-friendly synthesis protocols. The green synthesis of Iron Nanoparticles has been achieved using environmental acceptable plant extract. It was observed that Camellia sinensis leaf extract can reduce Iron ions into Iron Nanoparticles at room temperature. The aim of this study is to synthesize Iron Nanoparticles using Camellia sinensis extract in an environmental and sustainable way. The synthesized Iron Nanoparticles were characterized using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) analysis. This study shows that the Iron Nanoparticles can be synthesized using Camellia sinensis leaf extract as a reducing agent.
