In the developing world the metallic nanoparticles have been investigated because they exhibit unusual chemical properties, depending on their size and shape, larger surface area and thus opening many possibilities with respect to technological applications. The gold, silver and iron oxide nanoparticle are implicated for usagae of potential antioxidant and antimicrobial agents. Nanotechnology has elevated the standards of treatment for various disease especially for cancer. In the present work metallic nanoparticles were fabricated via the chemical synthesis route via chemical reduction and co precipitation technique. The synthesised nanoparticles were characterized using UV, FTIR, XRD, EDAX, SEM and TEM. The MIC and MBC values were determined further confirmed by resazurin assay and well diffusion method. The in vitro cytotoxicity were analyzed using Hep 2 and AGS cell line.
