This chapter focuses on the sustainable environment for the synthesis of nanoparticles using microorganisms, enzymes, or botanical extracts as an alternative to chemical synthesis, and their subsequent application in herbal drug delivery systems. The objective is to emphasize the rapid, straightforward, and reliable synthesis of nanoparticles using a novel, preferably eco-friendly process. Herbal drugs are gaining prominence due to their ability to treat chronic diseases, such as arthritis and hypertension. However, several constraints, such as poor solubility, poor bioavailability, and low oral absorption, have restricted their use. Nanoparticle-loaded phytochemicals disperse conveniently in liquid and thus perforate easily. Merging nanotechnology with herbal medicine is required to produce better therapeutics with improved activity in the fight against long-term chronic disorders. Tissue engineering is another significant application of nanotechnology. 

Keywords: Drug delivery, Gold nanoparticles, Green synthesis of Nanoparticles, Herbal nanoparticles, Microbial synthesis of nanoparticles, Nanotechnology in tissue engineering, Nanoparticles synthesis, Plant mediated nanoparticles. Therapeutic efficacy of Medicinal plants using nanoparticles, Synthesis of Nanoparticles of plants extracts, Viral nanotechnology.
