With the approach of nanotechnology many related industries rapidly developed over the recent past. Generally, top-down and bottomup are the two approaches used to synthesize nanoparticles; most of these require vacuum conditions, high temperatures, and toxic chemicals. As a consequence, harmful effects impacted organisms including humans. Some synthesis methods are more expensive and time-consuming. As a consequence, the concept of “green nanotechnology” emerged with the green synthesis of nanoparticles commencing a new stage in nanotechnology. This includes the synthesis of nanomaterials from microorganisms, and other biological materials. Honey is described as the world’s oldest food source with peculiar medical, pharmaceutical, physical, and chemical values. Honey mediated biogenic synthesis is a concept used during the past few years to synthesize gold, silver, carbon, platinum, and palladium nanoparticles. Honey acts as both a reducing agent and stabilizing agents in nanoparticle synthesis. This method usually requires room temperature and does not produce harmful byproduct. In this present work we have focus on biogenic synthesis of nanoparticles using honey .In conclusion, honey mediated green synthesis of nanoparticles provides a simple, cost effective, reproducible, biocompatible, rapid, and safe method. The special activity of honey functionalized nanoparticles may provide valuable end products with many applications in various fields.
