This review paper proposes the synthesis of nanoparticles from microbes and its applications. Several microorganisms like E. coli, Lactobacillus, Pseudomonas, etc. are involved in the nanoparticles synthesis such as gold, silver, titanium, etc. This is a part of the microbes’ internal metabolism. The microorganism used for this research is E. coli. The paper has discussed the use of silver nanoparticles generated from this microbe. Their characterization and analysis has been briefly discussed.
