Nanobiotechnology holds a great potential in various fields of life sciences. Nanotechnology involves the use of materials with components that have dimensions less than 100nm. The demand for biosynthesized nanoparticles increased day by day due to its ecofriendly and compatibility when compare to chemical method of synthesis. Application of nano-sized materials is an emerging area of nanotechnology. Molybdenum (Mo) nanoparticle was synthesized using fast, convenient, eco-friendly biological method from the aqueous extract of plumbago zeylanica. The same was synthesized using sol-gel method also. The nanoparticles synthesized by both the methods were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), ultra violet spectroscopy (UV), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and x-ray diffraction spectroscopy (XRD) studies. Molybdenum nanoparticles were found to be inhibiting the growth of bacteria and also act as effective catalyst.

Keywords: Molybdenum nanoparticles, plumbago zeylanica, catalyst, sol-gel, antibacterial activity.
