Author(s): Kanchan Khare

Nanotechnology is the most acclaimed art of science in recent times. It deals with the structure of mat-ter having dimensions ranging to a billionth of a meter. Nanotechnology studies the exclusive properties of an ele-ment from the core of its size and shape to be exploited for the benefit of science and technology. Silver (Ag) a transi-tion metal, has evolved from its ornamental value, to application in various fields of science and technology with its nano scale profile (nanometer:nm) as Silver nano particles (Ag-NPs).The present paper discusses a brief insight on silver metal, having documentation of its beneficial applications in traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvedas since 1000BC.
