Abstract


Terminalia arjuna commonly known as Arjuna is among the most valuable plants used in Unani, Ayurveda, Tibetian and Homeopathy medicine. Different plant extracts of Terminalia arjuna has been used for the synthesis of metal nanoparticles like gold, silver, copper, platinum, magnetic iron nanoparticles, self assembled gels and studied with silica gel incorporation. The present review discusses various metal nanoparticles synthesized, self assembly of constituents and their characteristics obtained using extracts of Terminalia arjuna along with progress towards pharmacological properties evaluation in extract combinations which are effective for controlling various kinds of ailments.
