Chemical reducing and capping reagents are largely used in synthesizing metal oxide nanoparticles which limits the biomedical applications. Researchers have recently found out the eco-friendly technique of green synthesis which enhances the unique physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials. In this critique, we discuss green route to synthesize metal oxide nanoparticles and its significant applications in various fields of energy and environment, aerospace, medicine, biotechnology,
