Nanotechnology has dramatically developed as an important field of modern research with potential effects in electronic and medicine and they are the particles with a characteristic size range from 1 - 100 nm. Nanoparticles are at the leading edge of nanoscience and nanotechnology since, the applications of nanosize materials have increased significantly. Nanoscale materials have been used in chronic disease diagnostics, food industry, pharmaceutical, nanoengineering and nanochemistry to enhance the immobilization and activity of catalysts [1]. Recently, green synthesis of nanoparticles has received particular interest in various fields ranging from material science to biotechnology [2]. Green synthesis of nanoparticles from plant extracts is an important branch in biosynthesis reaction. Bulk production of metal nanoparticles was synthesized from several microorganisms, such as yeasts, fungi and bacteria. The synthesis of metal nanoparticles from plant extract has drawn attention recently, because of its economical, eco-friendly and single step technique [3].
