Nanoscience has gained broad attention of the scientific community worldwide due to their inherent properties viz., surface area, mobility, high reactivity and their extensive applicability. However, bio-inspired synthesis of nanoparticles using different biological entities such as plants, fungi, algae, bacteria and yeast has emerged as rapidly developing research area. These biologically synthesized nanoparticles are being continuously employed in different application mostly in remediation of environmental contaminants and in biomedicine. Now a day, pesticide remediation by using nano-biotechnology is being widely used. Hence, this review has emphasized on the potential characteristics of nanoparticles, their types and advantages. It has also highlighted the different approaches for the green synthesis of nanoparticles and their application in pesticide remediation. This review will further shape the future of the use of biogenic nanoparticle as a safer measure in environmental clean-up.
