The Silver nanoparticles were obtained from Thuja (Morpunkhi) leaf extract using biosynthesis method. The obtained silver nanoparticles were studied by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Using Scherrer’s formula, the grain size of silver nanoparticles was obtained. The average size of obtained silver nanoparticles found to be 41.48 nm. The benefits of this biological method is an ecofriendly and easy to obtain silver nanoparticles. This method is affordable and pollution free.
