Nanotechnology has found a wide range of application in almost every field such as food technology, biological remediation, agriculture, antibacterial activity, industrial and medicinal. This report mainly concerns with the work of green synthesis process used for the synthesis of FeNPs (metal salt– ferric chloride heptahydrate used as precursor) using plant leaf extract. Metal nanoparticles that are synthesized by using plants extract usually have non-toxic and eco-friendly impact. The plants used were Nirgundi (Vitex negundo) and Bael (Aegle marmelos) which acted as reducing and capping agent and also used for stabilizing the synthesised nanoparticle. The antibacterial study was investigated against two gram positive (Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis) and two gram negative (Klebsiella oxytoca and Escherichia. coli). Characterization of iron nanoparticle was done by UV-vis spectrophotometer. This work provides a strong basis of further research and development regarding antibacterial therapeutics using plants.
