The purpose of the present study is to explore the merits and demerits of various biogenic synthesis route of gold nanoparticles using plant materials and microbes. Literature survey indicated that microbe mediated synthesis route is found to be quite effective buttheavailability and feasibility of microbes, enzyme control conditions is of great challenge for the researchers. Among all the available bio-reductants for the synthesis of gold nanoparticles rhizome of Zinger officinale (ginger) has been found more advantageous in accordance with availability, stability, applicability, reaction time, etc. for the fabrication of gold nanoparticles.
