Development of reliable and eco-friendly methods for the synthesis of nanoparticles is a vital step in the field of nanotechnology. The key mechanism behind the plant-mediated synthesis of Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) is a plant-assisted reduction due to phytochemicals. These AgNPs can be characterized using various techniques. The disposal of organic dyes is a crucial problem in textile and paper industries since they are nondegradable. The application of AgNPs in catalytic degradation of dyes is a better alternative option than the common dye removal techniques as it does not produce any harmful by products.
