The green synthesis of silvernanoparticles from plant extracts has proven to be a very effective as well as alternate pathways for the nanotechology. A number of techniques has been developed for synthesis i.e. chemical reduction. This study deal with synthesis of silver-nanoparticles from leaf extracts of plant. The extract was incubated with the solution of AgNO3 has showed gradual colour change of the extract from greenish to reddish brown, this visual change in colour indicates the silver nanoparticles formation. Synthesizing silver nanoparticles from Abutilon indicum L. plants is echo friendly, easy and cost effective. Silver nanoparticles have good antimicrobial efficiency against bacteria. That is why it is being widely used in medicinal application such as for the treatment of Cancer epilepsy and AIDS.
